The popular Overwatch video game has finally received its Xbox One X update today which means that it will now play in 4K resolution when played on Microsoft’s new console.

This update will also unlock a variety of Warcraft-themed items in-game for those that have also pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe version of World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. There are also several fixes and updates to some Overwatch charactaers which you can read about in the full release notes here.

The update is free for all owners of the Xbox One version of Overwatch and should automatically download on consoles that are powered on. If, for whatever reason, the update hasn’t installed yet, the update download can be force-activated by opening “My games & apps” and selecting “Updates”.
