Halo 5 Confirmed To Get True 4K Support For Xbox One X

Halo 5 4K Update Confirmed For Xbox One X

Halo 5 now features dynamic resolution scaling (up to 1080p) to ensure that it runs at 60 FPS.

We'll have more to share on this front as we get closer to release, so stay tuned. Later this year, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo CE: Anniversary will all be added to Xbox One's backward compatibility program. Due out later this year, the update will bring "true 4K" support to the game, though that's all we know for now.

Frank O'Connor, the development director of the Halo franchise over at 343 Industries, tweeted out a mysterious message last night pertaining to the games they work on.

Another cool thing about those four games becoming backwards compatible is that LAN support will also be included, so you can play on multiple Xbox consoles that are all hooked up to one another to play with your friends if you're all in the same room.

Furthermore, 343 noted on Halo Waypoint that "every Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack in the Xbox Store will be made available for free". All will include their original campaigns and multiplayer modes and support for LAN play, including play between Xbox One and Xbox 360 devices.

Thanks to the Master Chief Collection's various issues (some related to matchmaking problems, some related to how limited character customization became) fans have wanted these options for a while, and it's great to see it finally happen. Developers 343 studios themselves prioritized framerates over resolution when Halo 5 came out, so it is most likely that dynamic resolution scaling will be in use.
