Since the Xbox One X launched last month, many publishers have released updates for their titles to take advantage of the console's added horsepower. For Honor will be the latest to join the list of Xbox One X-enhanced games, as Ubisoft has announced it will roll out an update for the combat game tomorrow, December 5.
Like other Xbox One X-enhanced titles, the improvements tomorrow's update will make are almost entirely visual in nature. Most notably, the game will, as with many other games, use dynamic scaling to support resolutions up to 4K. Ubisoft says it is "using a real-time variable resolution (up to 4K-2160p) coupled with hardware scaling that output to TV resolution." As a result, the game will look sharper even on non-4K sets.
In addition to the higher resolution, the update will also improve shadow definition and render distant objects with a greater level of detail, while water surfaces will have dynamic reflections. Ubisoft released a new trailer that showcases these enhancements. You can watch the video at the top of this story.
