HDR Support Coming to Recore in 2017

You can expect the patch that adds HDR support sometime in 2017.


Another Microsoft-published Xbox One game will be patched to support high-dynamic range, the company has confirmed. Xbox Studios GM Shannon Loftis dropped the news on Twitter last night. She also confirmed that the patch that adds HDR support for Xbox One S consoles will come out in 2017.

Xbox technical director Mike Ybarra backed this up with a tweet of his own, writing, "Recore with HDR? Yes, it's coming."

Recore won't be the first Microsoft-published game with HDR support, as Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4 already have it. You need an Xbox One S and a 4K-enabled TV to see the benefits of HDR, which include things like more vibrant and luminous colors.

Designed by Mega Man's Keiji Inafune, Recore launched in September at a budget price of $40. The game, which was the first in Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere program, saw middle-of-the-road reviews. It is currently discounted to $20 at places like Amazon and other stores.
