Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Gears Tactics & Sea of Thieves are being updated for Series X

Like Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Microsoft exclusives Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Gears Tactics and Sea of Thieves will all be updated for the new Xbox Series X. This means that these titles will bear badges stating that they’ve been optimized for Microsoft’s newest console.

So, how will they all be improved?

Forza Horizon 4 will receive “higher fidelity graphics,” 4K / 60fps gameplay, Quick Resume, and faster load times

Gears 5 will incorporate faster load times, Quick Resume, and “Ultra” setting 4K HDR graphics for both campaign and multiplayer modes

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is getting higher-fidelity graphics and faster performance (120fps / 4K HDR / 120Hz)

Sea of Thieves will “take advantage” of the “advanced hardware” on the Xbox Series X. It may be the only one released on launch day, though.

Gears Tactics will offer 4K / 60fps gameplay

As with other enhanced titles, those who’ve purchased the current-gen versions of these games will get the Series X ones for free.
