Xbox Series X and S will Work With Dolby Vision HDR For Gaming

Dolby has revealed that the upcoming Xbox Series S and Series X will be the first consoles with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision HDR gaming support. Dolby Atmos #D surround sound will be activated at launch, while Dolby Vision HDR gaming is set to come in 2021.

Dolby Atmos is more of a known quantity and is already available in some games. It could improve the way you play games, as it distributes each sound in three-dimensional space “so you can pinpoint its location in the game,” Dolby said.

Xbox Series X and S will Work With Dolby Vision HDR For Gaming

With Dolby Vision, the company promises 40 times brighter highlights, 10 times deeper black levels and up to 12-bits of color depth. That will all depend on your TV or monitor, however, as most displays only work with 10-bits of color depth and few come even close to Dolby Vision’s maximum brightness levels.

While current Xbox One models support Dolby Atmos/Vision already, that only supports Netflix and other streaming media, not games. With the Xbox Series X and S, moreover, both Dolby Vision and Atmos will work with streaming media and support games.

The Xbox One X basically supported Dolby Vision for gaming, but the feature never left Microsoft’s testing phase. You can now paly several games on PC using Dolby Vision HDR-like Battlefield 1, but there has never been full episode support of until now.
