Resident Evil 7 Xbox One X Update Delivers a Terrifying 4K Experience

4K horror.

Resident Evil 7 is going to look even better for Xbox One X owners today after a new update, out today, makes Capcom's latest zombie game positively stunning on Microsoft's high-end console.

The Xbox One X update for Resident Evil 7 will now allow the game to output at 4K resolution and features HDR support. There will also be "improved skin tone display" to make those Bakers really shine. There's even an official graphics comparison video you can check out below.

The trailer does a great job highlighting just how stunning the 4K updates are for the Xbox One X version of Resident Evil 7. The graphics are cleaner, and more detailed which helps give the Baker mansion an even moodier feel.

Resident Evil 7 is Capcom's latest entry into its long-running, survival horror franchise. The 2017 game changes things up quite a bit by going first-person instead of its traditional third-person perspective. The creative decision paid off as we named Resident Evil 7 one of our Top Games of 2017.

Our Resident Evil 7 review awarded the game a 4/5, after praising how the game "absolutely recaptures the feeling of survival horror established in the first game." While we don't know whether or not future Resident Evil games will keep the first-person perspective of Resident Evil 7, we're confident to say that at least with this entry, Capcom seems to have found its horror mojo back.
