Forza Horizon 3 native 4K update for Xbox One X released

Playground Games has today rolled out Xbox One X Enhanced support for Forza Horizon 3, meaning you can now play the open-world racer in native 4K. The patch also improves auto reflections, shadow resolutions, texture quality for roads, draw distance, and generally turns the "car porn" dial to 11.

The gaming site Digital Foundry also conducted its own analysis of Forza Horizon 3 under the new 4K patch and claimed that the game does indeed manage native ultra HD graphics with the One X console and when hooked up to a 4K TV.

"On top of the obvious enhancement to native 4K, there are a number of other improvements we've made which really take advantage of the added definition 4K brings". As expected, the game has received a visual boost in the form of 4K support plus a number of other enhancements. Reflections are sharper and clearer, environment shadows are crisper and better defined, the quality of motion blur has been increased to make the driving experience significantly smoother, and better anisotropic filtering improves the detail visible in environment textures, particularly on the roads themselves.


The 4K update is free and out now, but is only available to those with the Xbox One X, sorry original Xbox One owners, time for an upgrade.

An infographic on the Xbox Wire also notes that the Xbox One X version will have faster load times, although there's no specifics on how much faster those load times are.
