Xbox Series X and Series S now support Dolby Vision which promises to deliver an enhanced experience for gamers around the world. Dolby Vision enhancement for the latest Xbox game consoles was first revealed by Microsoft last year, alongside Dolby Atmos support for games. The update is said to deliver “full-spectrum visuals” as well as vivid colors to in-game elements such as lush rainforests and futuristic neon cities. With the latest update, Xbox Series X and Series S became the first game consoles to support games in Dolby Vision.
Microsoft said more than 100 next-gen HDR titles optimized for Xbox Series X and Series S will have Dolby Vision. These games will include 343 Industries’ Halo Infinite which also received support for Dolby Atmos games earlier this year.
In addition to bringing game titles into Dolby Vision, Microsoft and Dolby have been working to use Dolby Vision technology to bring an enhanced visual experience to classic HDR10 and Auto HDR games. Microsoft says there will be thousands of games that will provide an enhanced experience on Dolby Vision-enabled TV models.
Almost every native HDR title available today that has been optimized for Xbox Series X and Series S, including Psychonauts 2, Gears 5, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, is promised to come to Dolby Vision in the future.
Microsoft is trying to take the user experience to a new level by bringing Dolby Vision gaming to the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. The company said Dolby Vision support for gaming will bring more vivid colors to the screen and will help players see enemies lurking in the shadows and spot hidden clues. This will be possible thanks to increased contrast and better clarity in bright and dark scenes that will be available through Dolby Vision, the company said.
Dolby Vision games are automatically mapped to any display that supports the proprietary technology to deliver improved brightness, color, contrast and detail. The technology is also compatible with features like DirectX Raytracing, Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) that are part of Xbox Series X and Series S. Microsoft and Dolby are also working with TV manufacturers to enable Dolby Vision capabilities at 120Hz refresh rate for compatible models.
