According to the above tweet, both the Series X and Series S will offer improved load times and 60 frames per second. However, the Series X will target 4K, whereas the Series S will run at 1080p.
This is in line with the improvements that have previously been revealed for other notable games. For example, Fortnite will support 4K and 60 FPS on the Xbox Series X, and 1080p and 60 FPS on the Series S. The developer behind Halo: The Master Chief Collection has also announced similar gains, with 120 FPS 4K on Series X and 1080p on Series S. However, the update will not arrive until November 17, so players will need to be a bit patient.
