The Xbox One X is definitely the most powerful Xbox console ever created. Microsoft had a great idea, and the company wanted that all gamers who doubt the amazing capabilities of this console to see its true potential for themselves.

For this reason specifically, the company just released a free Xbox One tool that provides gamers the opportunity to check out UHD, 4K and more features of the Xbox One X system.

Insects: An Xbox One X Enhanced Experience

The free tool was initially developed by the Xbox Advanced Technology Group, and the demo was originally known as insects. It is an interactive Ultra HD HDR experience.

This was initially meant to be a tool targeted at developers, but then the whole Xbox team realized the potential fun that comes along with it.

That’s when the team decided to make it available to the general public via the Microsoft Store on the Xbox on the very day of the Xbox One X’s launch.

Toggle between various formats such as HDR, 4K and Spatial audio

While using this free tool, gamers are able to toggle between more settings and formats including 4K, HDR, and Spatial audio.

To get a feeling of a more enhanced realism, gamers will also be able to pause this experience, switch the time of day, highlight pixels and zoom in on elements to see the incredible attention to details.

The ultimate goal is to see and hear the differences that come alongside the new technologies in gaming.

No matter if you are an Xbox One X owner or not you can check out Insects: An Xbox One X Enhanced Experience from the Microsoft Store.
