There has never been a better time to play Overwatch on Xbox with the performance enhancements that Xbox Series X | S brings to the game through console performance enhancements. To play Overwatch The game looks better, runs smoother, and loads faster on next-generation hardware like the Xbox Series X | S.
We’re excited to take advantage of the 120 Hz and variable refresh rate modes that Microsoft brought with the Xbox Series X | S hardware. The improvements to the Xbox Series X | S allow gamers to run the game in a higher graphical quality, giving console gamers the ability to activate visual features that were previously reserved for higher-end PC hardware, which is very exciting for our community . Not only does the new hardware run smoother, it also enables Auto HDR, which looks great and plays well Overwatch.
The faster frame rates result in smoother gameplay and lower input latency, which directly correlates with greater accuracy in aiming – something very important to Overwatch. Alternatively, the game consistently achieves higher resolution, which adds to the clarity of the picture and allows players to see small changes and details more accurately. All of these updates give our players a boost in situational awareness and improve their performance.
As a developer, it’s always exciting to see how our game fares on new consoles, and we’re excited to see the fast-paced, action-packed world of Overwatch comes to life with the added power and performance of the Xbox Series X | S. And of course, the extremely fast load times are a huge improvement for gamers on the latest generation of Xbox.
