Atomic Heart

Atomic Heart got off to a strong start on Xbox, with Game Pass helping it reach five million players in under a month.

Along the way there have been a number of updates, and now the latest (and perhaps most exciting one) has been delivered. It improves HUD visibility, fixes some achievement issues and adds 120Hz mode to Xbox Series X|S.

As noted, there are some other additional improvements tied to visuals, audio, quests, gameplay and stability. Here are the details in full, via the official support page:
