New Resident Evil 7 Update Enhances It For Xbox One X

Welcome to the 4K family, son!


Capcom has released a Resident Evil 7 update that allows Xbox One X owners to enjoy some extra visual bells and whistles as they try to escape the Baker Estate and its unhinged proprietors.

With the update installed, the game will now output at 4K resolution and support HDR on the Xbox One X. According to a comparison video published on the Xbox YouTube channel, it will also have "improved skin tone display through Screen-Space Subsurface Scattering." Check out the video below.

If you haven't played Resident Evil 7 yet, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. And if you have, it's a great excuse to replay it. Resident Evil 7 was one our favourite games of 2017 and was awarded the No.4 spot on our overall Best Games of 2017 list.

In GameSpot's Resident Evil 7 review, Scott Butterworth awarded it an 8/10. "Resident Evil 7 ends just as it starts to outstay its welcome, and after the fact, I felt like I'd survived a truly harrowing journey," he said. "The boss fights may be slightly inconsistent and certain sections might drag after a while, but RE7 is still a remarkable success. It has a clear vision and executes it with impressive patience and precision. By returning to horror, Resident Evil has once again become something special."
