Square Enix has announced today that Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbox One has a new update which will support the newly released Xbox One X. The update will enhance the game’s graphics and other features as it takes advantage of the new hardware’s capabilities.
Developed in partnership with long-time partners Nixxes Software, the Xbox One X features for the award-winning experience include the highest fidelity graphics ever in a Tomb Raider game. The new technical enhancements leverage the full power of Xbox One X and offer visual settings that gamers can tailor to their taste.
