Red Dead Redemption 2 Will Run At Native 4K Resolution On The Xbox One X

Spotted over on GameRevolution, Xbox France has seemingly confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will run at a native 4K resolution with HDR on the Xbox One X console.

While French has never been a strong point of mine, the tweet translation feature turns it from what you see above into the following:

The new gameplay trailer is available đź’š in less than a month on : optimized 4k native HDR on

Exciting, isn’t it? Because you know, graphics ostensibly make a video game better apparently.

But what about the PS4 Pro you ask? Via its blog, Sony recently said the following:

On PS4 Pro, 4K HDR TV owners will benefit from enhanced graphics and optimized performance for a stunningly sharp and detailed look (when compared to a PS4 system), as you live, ride and fight to survive as an outlaw in a notorious gang. HD TV owners will benefit from increased image clarity through the PS4 Pro’s Supersampling Mode (you can turn on Supersampling Mode in the PS4 Pro system settings menu). Meanwhile, if your TV supports high-dynamic range (HDR), you’ll experience the picturesque scenery of Red Dead Redemption 2 with an even more vibrant and dynamic range of colours (HDR features also available on PS4 system).

Hmmm. No mention of having a native 4K resolution that it’s rival is boasting about. Could the Xbox One X truly be the better console (graphically) to play the game on?

However, it appears that no matter which console you choose to tackle Arthur Morgan’s western adventure on you’re in for a good time, with our good friends at Press Start going hands-on with the game recently (you lucky bastards) and loving it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch on October 26 on PS4 and Xbox One.
