Smelling my own farts but I'm kind of impatient for 4K Halo 5 at my house. It's fun to play at work but I know my own TV way better and want to see how it looks there.
You tease. When will we get more info on enhancements and get to see this?

Thinking about buying Battlefield 1 Revolution. Is BF getting a patch? On page 1 it says it does, but can't find info anywhere that confirms this.
I think it will be getting an update, just being kept quiet due to Sony deals. Its 1 of a few more games im hoping get an update, others are Overwatch, Seige, Destiny 2 (im sure itl happen) and a not that i play them much but Black Ops 3, Infinte warfare and modern warfare remastered.

I know that Sony has marketing deals regarding to Battlefront and Call of Duty. But I don’t think they have any deal with Battlefield, as a matter of fact, Microsoft has that marketing deal.

They need to add Alien Isolation to this list, that game is just too dang good (and freakishly terrifying) to just leave to History as is, especially since were never gonna get a sequel to it. I need another reason to play through it again! ;)

Microsoft had that deal, lol.

On Pro the game runs at 1800 CBR with better settings and better framerate, so you can expect either 4K CBR or 1800p native, with better visual settings+ a more stable framerate.

Come on. Really?

It's new for 99.9% of users who are not in the Alpha program.

Pedantic much?
If youre not in the program there are articles out there about it thats almost a month old, and ppl talking about it forums everyhwere. Its not new and you dont have to in the program to know about it.

Currently playing through The Old Blood and maybe knowing Wolfenstein II is very near but damm the textures in the game are 'workmanlike' I'm hoping with the Xbox one X version of Wolfy 2 they pump everything up textures, effects.

Just bought Mass Effect Andromeda Deluxe Edition for $17 in hopes they will at least do the patch like they did for the pro. Probably wishful thinking though since they’ve basically abandoned this game. Will the “x” have a boost like mode like the pro?

I only played the trial since I have EA Access...but I will say this, if EA does do a patch for the game I will buy the Deluxe Edition day one when the "X" comes out. I just felt the performance was not great on the standard Xbox One, so if they do a "X" enhancement I will buy the game.

I look forward to playing it on the XBO X, but the thing I want most in this game is not to have distance-based framerates on animations. It was so incredibly jarring to see an enemy running and jumping far away at 30fps when the game was running at 60.

Good point

However, I thought they were going to fix this? It will look horrible if not.. especially in 4K.

Not sure if it's true but I read they are adding HDR as well.
When HDR was first introduced in the Xbox Line with the Xbox One S, i asked stinkles if Halo 5 was going to get that update. He replied no. This was probably like last year so i didnt look up the quote for this reply. But of course, things change.

STINKLES GONNA CHIME IN AGAIN? :p

Yes you're right. You'll definitely see significant benefits from running on HDR sets, and of course the game itself renders in 4k and takes advantage of higher resolution textures (will be a serious download) and assets, but HDR specifically was tricky for a couple of reasons specific to H5 - the first being of course that it's two years old and it's not just a switch - you have to "touch" all the content. The game was developed during the period HDR systems were still being ironed out. Even now there's a bunch of 10 bit/Dolby Vision etc issues for consumers.

This was largely resolved in time for Halo Wars 2, and so the HDR implementation for that will be full since the game was built from scratch to support it.

The second - and from my perspective more important aspect is that Halo in particular has color symmetry on level designs as an aspect of balance and matchmaking. One side is blue and one side is red, often in fairly subtle ways. We already balance for that difference and applying changes retroactively would be a test issue at a grander scale than many other games. So we made the choice to concentrate on other IQ aspects for the update.

Obviously that won't be an issue for future titles, since they'll be targeted for those systems in the first place and the art, test and design processes aligned.

And besides, it looks very pretty anyway.

There ARE methods for just blanket applying HDR to extant content, but the results are mixed and really dependent on what the underlying material looks like. So we developed for a conservative and safe outcome for that particular software.

I REALLY need an LG OLED. My neighbor got one. We have one at work. And it makes my TV look like crap. I'm reminded of the Pioneer Elite gulf.

Bit OT... maybe not, but I bought a 55" LG OLED in expectance of my One X, so any content updates are golden to to my ears.

I'm jealous. I have a great Sony XBR set, with proper 10 bit HDR, nice clean game mode, works great, looks fantastic - until you look at it side by side with the OLED. I can't justify a new TV purchase for probably YEARS now.

Couldn't tell you off the top of my head - XBR, 65 inch, 2017 model.

Edit. This one, I think.

XBR65X900E
The 900e's are very good sets. I have a 2 week old LG OLED E7 65" right now. I have contemplated moving to the Sony ZD9 since they just dropped price. One thing with LED sets is they can get much brighter than any OLED, but you do loose that great true black. The ZD9's for a LED come closest than any other LED set to OLED black level's,..but seeing them together the OLED just pops a bit more...but if you very bright HDR the Zd9 is the clear champ. Main reason I am debating the move is that LG has had some issues with firmware updates nuking stuff. For example the 2016 OLED's had a firmware that lowered the light output for HDR making it duller than it was before. On the 2017's they just had a firmware that gave all picture modes when in PC mode the same low input lag, but it introduced color banding/gradients that just look horrid. So they tend to not fully test and end users end up screwed.

I have turned off auto updates on my set, but still debating on making and exchange..but I have to admit I have really fallen in love with the colors that pop with a true black OLED panel.

BTW...and I know you have been asked this a ton...but at 4k/60fps Halo 5 are the animation on distant enemies still at 30fps? I know it is sour subject, but we would all love for this to be fixed.

Lastly, any word on when we will get official information in regards to H5 4k update?

Thanks!

Good info here. Glad to hear about the higher resolution textures.

Still sitting on the fence on the x, halo 5's enhancements will likely literally determine my ultimate decision.

Stay with your B7 and the firmware before that broken update. Latency on game mode is about 28ms which is decent. And as you said nothing can come close to those black levels.

So Halo 5's patch doesn't have real HDR, but still some benefits on HDR TVs? Bit confused now.....

With 4K native 4K is meant?
343 said that this would be the case : "Today we are excited to officially confirm that Halo 5 will receive a game update to support true 4K with the release of Xbox One X later this year! We’ll have more to share on this front as we get closer to release, so stay tuned"

I think they're upping the dynamic resolution to max on 4K, I hope the Xbox One X manages to keep that most of the time. But it at least means the console can dynamically drop down the resolution if things get chaotic onscreen and retain that sweet 60fps.

Can't wait for the Xbox One X patch. But when you say that it supports higher resolution textures, is that a match for the highest texture settings for Halo 5 on PC?
