Call of Duty: WWII will pump visuals in glorious 4K Ultra high definition resolution with the magic of High Dynamic Range (HDR) on Xbox One X.
The confirmation comes from an updated listing from retailer Game that features the official box art of the upcoming installment. The packaging clearly states that the game will take full advantage of the new beastly console-upgrade variant from Microsoft.
On the other hand, Activision and Sledgehammer Games are yet to detail any enhancements for Call of Duty: WWII on Xbox One X. The game is even missing from the list of “Enhanced Titles” on the official website even though it was updated only yesterday. It is being assumed that the marketing deal with Sony prohibits the publisher and developer from doing so. At least that should remain the case until we draw closer to the release date.
Call of Duty: WWII may be dealing with 4K resolution but it is unconfirmed whether that is native or scaled. It is possible that Sledgehammer Games will be using the Checkerboard rendering technology of the console to run the game at that high resolution.
The developer previously confirmed that the multiplayer servers will feature a tick rate of 60Hz. This is great news since many of the past installments have traditionally gone with lower tick rates. Sledgehammer Games has made it apparent that it is listening to the community and will act on every feedback for improvements.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled for a worldwide release on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Xbox One X will hit shelves on November 7. It seems unlikely that the game will arrive for the Nintendo Switch.
