Forza Horizon 3 will receive a new patch on January 15, thanks to which support for Xbox One X will be enabled.
Amazing work! Congrats Playground Games! Can´t wait to race your beautiful game again. And now, all i can think about is Forza Horizon 4 reflecting the all beauty of Japan vistas at Native 4K! *_* Drifiting Haruna (Akina) Mountain on Forza Horizon will be a dream come true. Yes, Initial D fan right here, baby. ;) HYPE!!!
I LIKE IT!!!
Adds to an already impressive title.
Still waiting for Sunset Overdrive patch I want to play that game.
Sunset is one of the best games this gen, an absolute joy to play
Can’t wait stopped playing when I heard there was a patch coming.
Me too bro, back to FH3
same here. haven't turned it on since I heard about the patch and started loads of other games, can't wait to jump back in
I don't normally play non-VR racing games any more, but FH3 is a gem. At the very least I'll probably have a dabble with the Hot Wheels expansion content. Cross-buy coming up trumps for me, as I originally bought this for PC :)
Amazing! My 4K OLED is ready! Greatest racer of the generation easy!
Yes easily. So much fun too.
The best racer this gen...now with Native 4K. My X is ready. 👍🏼
arcade racer you mean?
I mean arcade or otherwise actually.
Well the game does feature a fully simulated transmission and there's loads of tuning. Can't remember many arcade racers where you can adjust the tyre pressure.
What makes the difference? Oh you're just being a..........? Why act like this?
Nice,what oled you got?I've got the lg b7 awesome gaming in hdr.
55" 2017 LG B7 OLED - love it!
Hope it's 60fps
Forza Horizon 3 is 1080p/30 so it seems impossible to get to 4K/60 out of it on the XB1X. That would require 8 times the pixels per second, but maybe a 1080p enhanced mode could get it there if Playground puts some serious effort into it.
i don't know about the serious effort since it can run 1080/60 on Win10 PC from Windows Store and even has same achievements already. in this case it's either shady policy or laziness
I don't know for sure Slasaru, but I believe (IIRC) that games on consoles which are frame locked to 30FPS would need more work to change things like the frame buffer to get to 60FPS. Games with unlocked framerates can just scale up to 60 without much more that extra power. Maybe someone with programming experience like Rainslacker could elaborate, but it's beyond my scope to give any more detail. I don't see why you'd conclude that it's shady practice or laziness. When has Playground ever skimped on quality or detail?
Most likely 4k 30fps. maybe a 1080p 60 mode though?
i would hope for 1440p 60 fps with up scaling.
Not a chance.
But the Witcher 3 offers this?? It's a possibility if not a pipe dream
The Witcher 3 offers "up to" 60fps at "up to" 4K on Xbox one X. Stable 60fps would be possible I reckon, but not at 4k, not in a big open world game.
The Witcher 3 offers 1080p and averages about 45FPS if you watch the analysis by Digital Foundry. It's totally inconsistent which really isn't good for a racing game. Might be just about tolerable riding around on a horse in an adventure game, less so racing cars. It's also less demanding than Forza Horizon 3, since it's exclusively an offline title and Horizon 3 pushes the base Xbox One very hard. Soon as you add Horizon 3's netcode coupled with the open world there is no hope it'll get near to sustaining 60FPS on Xbox One X even at 1080p. Not unless you want to take a hit to the settings.
If 60fps is what you after, why didn't you play it at its best since launch? It was already 60fps or higher on a decent PC
You answered your own question. I don't have the extra cash to spend on upgradin g my PC. Between my Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and Switch I'm tapped out
you could have upgraded your PC for cheaper than buying the X and play this game at 60fps. maybe not in 4K but 1080p or even 1440p at 60fps was already doable on a mid-range cards
no chance of 4k 60fps but hopefully we will get a 1080 60fps and 4k 30fps modes
This game looks amazing on the normal xbone. Holy crap how good will it look on the x? By far the best racer this generation. Possibly ever, so far on any system.
The PC version should give you a indication on how Da X version will look
Returning to the Outback for this
The beast strikes again more 4k :)
Surely youd like more games though.
Of course but this is a nice plus too right?
Surely you would like to play a good racer no? Emphasis on good.
Cooooooooool. I have purposely not played for the last couple of months waiting for this. Super excited.
same here bro
Kinda odd how you Xbox gamers stopped playing games because of possible 4k upgrades. . .
I know I did once I found out about the patch and have no problems admitting it haha. I've been playing plenty of games in the meantime...Ghost of a Tale, Forza Motorsport 7, Conan, Cuphead, PUBG, Path of Exile, Romancing SaGa 2 etc...Ive already put in over 300 hours in the game...why not come back to it after it can fully take advantage of my OLED? Makes sense to me...
It is a little strange but I bought the ultimate edition of Forza Horizon 3 and haven't even installed it waiting for the patch
why is it strange. my reason was I still have things to do in the game and would rather finish the game when it looks loads better. I wish I had done the same with witcher 3 so I could of gone back and completed it in 4k hdr
Impressive patch to an impressive game.
No 60 fps :(
Quote : But the Witcher 3 offers this?? It's a possibility if not a pipe dream ..... Is it stable 60? It's not.
Stable enough not to complain. And also a higher FPS than 30 so why not
Better than pro 30 with drops.
@Tru3 Where i mentioned Pro here, hm? Btw. Xbone X with 30 fps is on par with Pro in 30 fps mode. Both version are pretty solid, Xbone fan. Cheers!
You didnt mention Pro, but that doesn't stop ppl bringing up PC in every Xbx article when the Pro is supposed to be its hardware competition. Its like the Pro doesn't exist anymore in comparisons
You got up votes for unstable 60 ? LOL. People can be hilariously dumb. Game barely hits 60fps at 1080p. BARELY. It's so unstable. Better LOCKED 30 than UNSTABLE 60. https://m.youtube.com/watch...
Shut up and leave people alone. Quit trying to be the killer of enjoyment. Whats wrong with people? Quit with the console war crap cause this is exactly what you're doing. No other reason to worry and make fun of the fact that they enjoy the game at whatever frame rate they want. Doesn't make a difference one way or the other what someone else likes.
all those disagreed lol, don't like the game why even click to read? I'm exited for it I also stop playing so I can play it after enhancement
Ah, just ignore them and enjoy what you want. Most users here are ONLY here for the console war BS.
anyone else think that HDR doesn't work right in almost all games? always appears dark grey and a little washed out.
Get yourself an LG OLED...you'll never have that issue again...thank me later 😉
Make sure you enable HDR in the settings of your Xbox too...that could be why.
Doesn't the Xbox auto detect if you can run hdr and 4k? Oh wait I do remember having to do that on assassins creed orgins but that was the only game, that's weird.
yah its on on the tv and the console, it shows all the green checkmarks saying everything is working. tried adjusting in game sliders, that does increase some of the super bright parts but the darks seem washed out.
Something's definitely wrong with your setup without a doubt. HDR is absolutely amazing looking. I recommend doing some research on your tv and setup. HDR makes colors pop and stand out way more. You cant help but say wow this looks great. Also some tv's only have HDR in one of the HDMI's. It's usually the HDMI slot# 1.
thanks , but its port 3 and 4 that do the hdr on my tv and I've tried both. the only real option is standard mode or enhanced mode on my tv, enhanced enables the hdr. i'm going directly from the xbox to the tv.
Also check your AVR settings, depending on the model you may need to enable HDR or use pass through option. Also check which tv input you are using as I think some tv's have only certain hdr HDMI inputs.
thanks, i'm going straight to the tv though (using optical for audio since my receiver isn't 4k)
What about the wide color gamut option on your TV. For my LG OLED, if I didn't enable the "Deep Color" option for the HDMI port I'm using for my X, I would not be getting HDR even though I know my TV is capable of it.
I don't see a deep color option, only color saturation and then color profiles like vivid.
From one fellow gamer to another........I hope you get it sorted out.
