Resident Evil 7 finally gets Xbox One X enhancements in long-awaited new update

With a bit of a discount to celebrate.

Capcom has finally released its long-awaited Xbox One X update for Resident Evil 7, bringing with it a range of fancy visual enhancements.

Once the patch is installed, Xbox One X owners can, according to Microsoft, enjoy 4K output, HDR support, and "improved skin tone display through Screen-Space Subsurface Scattering." You can see at least some of that in the accompanying comparison trailer below.

Resident Evil 7's long-promised update has been lingering around Microsoft's list of upcoming Xbox One X Enhancements for a good while now, so it's great to see it finally come to pass. Hopefully with this one crossed off the list, Capcom might finally get around to bringing VR support to Resident Evil 7 on PC some time soon. Eh, Capcom?

If you've yet to sample the dingy delights of Resident Evil 7, a cursory glance at the Xbox Store reveals that today's Xbox One X update is accompanied by a bit of a discount on the game's digital version. For the next two weeks, you can pick it up for £20.91 (or £18.89 with a Gold membership), instead of its usual £25.19 price tag. Alternatively, the Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition is down from £44.99 to £31.49, or £26.99 with Xbox Live Gold.
