Thanks to Xbox’s listing, we now know that MachineGames and Bethesda’s Wolfenstein: The New Colossus will be Xbox One X enhanced, come with HDR support, and run at 4K.

In addition to confirming 4K compatibility on Xbox One X, the listing also confirms similar support for PC. Because said listing is an Xbox listing, there is no mention of 4K support on PS4 Pro, but it’s quite likely Sony’s supped-up PS4 will also support said resolution. Unfortunately, there is no information on whether or not the game is native 4K or is upscaled, and usually the ambiguousness of this kind of stuff points to the latter.

Further details on what type of enchantments will come for Xbox One X can not be divulged from the listing, but expect Bethesda and MachineGames to dish out these details as we get closer to launch.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is poised to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 27th, priced at the usual AAA standard of $59.99 USD. Beyond a standard edition of the game, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is also available in a classic GI-Joe-themed Collector’s Edition for $40 more ($99.99 USD). In addition to a spiffy collector’s edition, the game’s launch will also be accompanied by an official art book from Dark Horse.

In case this is your first time hearing about Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, the sequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, then you may want to peep the game’s announcement trailer, which was revealed during E3 2017.
