Xbox One X enhancements come to 'Red Dead Redemption' and 'Portal 2'

Red Dead Redemption 2 might not launch for several months, but Microsoft is giving you the next best thing.

If you've wanted to revisit John Marston's saga on your 4K TV, this is likely as good as it gets until the sequel arrives. Not that the other games are obscure -- Darksiders, Gears of War 2, Portal 2, Sonic Generations (the first time it's available on Xbox One, in fact) and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed are making the leap as well.

Try to feign surprise when you find out that it's a free-to-play battle royale game. On the surface, Radical Heights stands out from the crowd with a vibrant, quasi cel-shaded, retro-futuristic game-show vibe that hearkens back to the '80s. Meaning, there's are a lot of extreme pastels and hot pink triangles complementing its over-the-top Saturday morning cartoon tone.
