The Xbox One X has had a strong start in the UK with over 80,000 units sold in its first week.

A long list of games have been given upgrades for the more powerful Xbox One console. Blizzard has told Windows Central Overwatch will be getting 4K support on the Xbox One X.


Read the full statement from Blizzard below:

Overwatch team is excited with great possibilities Xbox One X opens. The team is currently exploring how the game experience can be enhanced on this platform to leverage the console's incredible hardware, and is working on implementing 4K resolution in the game on Xbox One X. It is very important for the team to make sure the user interface looks natural on a truly big screen. We will share more details about our plans for 4K support on Xbox One X later.

Overwatch will be free to play this weekend on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

They did a good job with X1X's patch of Diablo 3. So I think they will do a good job with this patch. Will probably vary from a pixel count between 1800p and 4K.

The Diablo 3 patch was also good on PS4 Pro but the Overwatch one was pretty awful. So let's hope they put more effort in with the X1X version. (PS4 Pro is still 1080p...)

Damn, another 4k/60 frame game for X. At this rate I can give my PC a good rest. I have been missing a good lounge play.
