Halo 5: Guardians Getting Xbox One X Support

Halo may have been conspicuously absent at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, but that doesn't mean we won't be seeing the software giant's biggest game franchise on Xbox One X this holiday season. Guardians was confirmed to be receiving a 4K update for the Xbox One X. In addition, the remaining four Halo titles that are not now backwards compatible were announced to be joining the program before the end of the year. Halo 5 now features dynamic resolution scaling (up to 1080p) to ensure that it runs at 60 FPS. Additionally, every single piece of DLC for the Xbox 360 Halo games will be going completely free when they join Backward Compatibility - and playing with Xbox 360 users over either system link (LAN) or Xbox Live is still possible.

This includes: Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary. In the meantime, if you're one of those fans of Halo that are attending the Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin, Texas this weekend, you'll be able to play Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST to see how they look on the Xbox One. The new playlist will be built from scratch and will include a selection of community-made Halo 3 maps created using Forge in Halo 5 and will feature "classic" gameplay settings. A lot of folks already have access to these titles on Xbox One through the Master Chief Collection, but this is still a fine way to play the original versions.

343 Industries seems to have a busy summer ahead of them and is looking forward to Gamescom in August where they will be showing more of Halo Wars 2.
