A new title is getting enhanced for the Xbox One X, which means there's all the more reason to use that 4K TV now.

The Xbox One release of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition now carries Xbox One X enhancements, as stated by publisher Gearbox Software in a tweet.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition was first announced and released back in 2017 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The title itself is a remaster of the original Bulletstorm, released back in 2011 for the previous generation of consoles. As such, the remaster, although very pretty, lacked true 4K capabilities. That has been fixed, thanks to the power of Xbox One X, Microsoft’s most powerful console.

The patch was officially rolled out yesterday for owners of the Xbox One X console, which Gearbox states finally adds 4K support to Bulletstorm. Unfortunately, there isn’t any more information regarding what the patch entails. Thankfully, we do have some in-game footage thanks to YouTuber Skycaptin5lol, who recorded some 20 minutes of the game in action on the Xbox One X.

A closer look at the footage tells that there seems to be an overall graphical upgrade, although some of the models, in particular the guns, have some weird texture popping at times. This may be due to Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition not being true 4K, but probably upscaled. It’s probably somewhere closer to 1800p than native 4K. Despite that, the game is prettier overall, and runs at a locked 60 frames per second, which is what I can say matters to me the most.

This is not the first time Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition got 4K support, though. It previously received those upgrades for both the PlayStation 4 Pro and PC version, making the Xbox One X version the last to be enhanced for 4K.

Nintendo Switch owners, of course, will not be left out for long. A planned Switch port titled Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch Edition which includes all previous content and DLCs, will be released sometime in Q3 2019. In the meantime, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
