Forza Horizon 4, Sea Of Thieves Are Being Optimised For Xbox Series X

Microsoft revealed as part of this week's Xbox Games Showcase that Forza Horizon 4 and Sea of Thieves would be joining a selection of Xbox One titles that will be optimised for Xbox Series X, with the upgraded versions available through Smart Delivery and Xbox Game Pass.

So, what does that mean? In the case of Forza Horizon 4, the game will now run in native 4K Ultra HD at 60 frames per second, which will include higher visual fidelity at longer distances. Furthermore, it will also benefit from faster load times and support the Xbox Series X's new Quick Resume feature.

Details on Sea of Thieves are being kept mostly under wraps for now, however we do know for sure that it will be doubling its frame rate to 60fps, as revealed by Xbox exec Aaron Greenberg on a recent Inside Gaming livestream.

There are plenty more Xbox One games that will be getting the "Optimised for Xbox Series X" treatment on the next-gen system as well (such as Ori and the Will of the Wisps), with over 40 of these titles reportedly on the way at launch.
