Microsoft’s native backward compatibility for Xbox One games on Xbox Series X should mean that all first-party games will benefit from some form of enhancements, from resolution boosts to improved framerates.
Hopefully, with the generational leap granted by the impressive Xbox Series X specs, the upcoming Sea of Thieves Xbox Series X enhancements should make the game look fantastic for those who play on next-gen hardware. Ray-traced lighting maybe?
