The Orange Box , Left 4 Dead and Portal all have Xbox One X support
Today, Microsoft announced that four of Valve’s most popular games now have been updated with support for Xbox One X enhancements. These titles are already part of the Backwards Compatibility program and there’s some great games coming to the system with improved graphical fidelity and performance.
The games in question include Portal, The Orange Box, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2, which are all currently playable on the system with various enhancements on One X hardware. Since these are all running on the X360 emulator built into the console, the major noticeable benefit is in graphical improvements. These games will run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count. These incredible improvements may even warrant gamers picking up these classic older games and giving them a whirl.
Microsoft points out that these graphical upscaling tricks all work without touching original game code or assets, so barring a full HD remaster, these are the best these games are likely to ever look on consoles.
If you’re such a person, let us know in the comments how these new enhancements improved your gameplay experience. If you want to get your own Xbox One X, you can grab one at Amazon. Or you could head to your local Taco Bell, were custom platinum-painted versions are being given away right now.
