Enhanced Versions of 4 Valve Classics Now Playable on Xbox One X

The list of enhanced Xbox 360 titles grows with The Orange Box, Portal, and Left 4 Dead 1 & 2.

Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb has announced that, starting today, enhanced versions of four more Xbox One Backward Compatible titles will be playable on Xbox One X: Valve classics Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, Portal: Still Alive, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2.

"Xbox 360 games enhanced for Xbox One X run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count," Hyrb's post states.

Without altering the game's original code, enhanced titles "showcase the very best version possible with the existing assets."

With these additions, there are now 21 enhanced Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One X, including Assassin's Creed, Fallout 3, and Red Dead Redemption.

While these four new additions may not all be created equal, it is hard to deny the impact they have had on their respective genres, and enhanced versions are certainly a boon for those that have sprung for the more powerful Xbox One.

To close, if you have not played Half-Life 2: Go!
