UPDATE: Windows Central reports that Mass Effect: Andromeda has become X-Enhanced. The game received a 1GB patch that has raised the game’s internal rendering resolution up to 4K.

Ah, Mass Effect: Andromeda, what you could have been. The first entry in a proposed new trilogy that ended with a series in hiatus isn’t the Mass Effect game we all wanted, but it was definitely the one we got.

Andromeda wasn’t much in the way of story or overall gameplay, but it sure was a looker. Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro once used the game as a benchmark to show just how well third-party titles could run on their machine. Xbox One X, which launched after the game’s large round of controversy, never saw support for the game, but that might be about to change.

Reported by Windows Central’s Asher Madan, Mass Effect: Andromeda has been spotted on the list of X Enhanced titles. There aren’t any details as to what enhancements we can expect to see (although a basic resolution increase would make the original game’s blurry visuals on Xbox a lot more tolerable.)

When can we expect to see these enhancements? Well, while no date has been officially announced as of yet, Mass Effect’s N7 Day does take place tomorrow – November 7th. If anything is to be announced, we can expect it to be then.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently available on Xbox One for £17.99 (£7.20 with Gold)/$29.99/$12.00 with Gold.
