New Patch Greatly Improves Titanfall 2's Performance on the Xbox One X

Hey, hey, cool 4K.

Not all games are able to take full advantage of the Xbox One X's power, but the console's library is gradually being empowered through patches. The most recent upgrade appears to be Titanfall 2.

According to Eurogamer's Digital Foundry, Respawn Entertainment has been hard at work making Titanfall 2 worthy of the Xbox One X's power.

"Titanfall 2 improves dramatically on Xbox One X," writes Richard Leadbetter. "The 864p/1080p stress point we identified on X/PS4 Pro now shifts markedly to a 1440p/1080p split in favour of the new Microsoft console.".

That said, the improvement isn't too noticeably higher than what you'd see on the PlayStation 4 Pro. "[S]ide-by-side with PlayStation 4 Pro, it's equally fair to say that the improvement here is one of refinement as opposed to a game-changing, super-crisp upgrade over Sony's 'super-charged' console," Leadbetter continues. "We've seen similar results in other titles that heavily utilise temporal super-sampling—the technology produces a softer aesthetic that helps to bridge the gap between resolutions, and big on-paper boosts in pixel counts don't result in equally massive improvements to image quality.".

As usual, Digital Foundry has side-by-side video comparisons of how the newly-patched version of Titanfall 2 performs on the Xbox One X versus the PlayStation 4 Pro, and other iterations of the game. Check it out for the nitty-gritty.
