Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One owners will soon be able to have their gaming enhanced by DTS:X sound.
The news came form a tweet by Steven Wilssens, one of Microsoft’s lead audio team.
DTS:X is an object-based surround sound system, which builds true three-dimensional audio ‘landscapes’ that place you right at the heart of the action. Its is a technology comparable woth the rival Dolby Atmos.
DTS:X has been available for movies via the Xbox One consoles’ Blu-ray/4K Blu-ray drive since 2017.
Wilssens also confirmed that DTS:X support will also be coming to Windows in the coming weeks. In fact, a DTS:X Ultra app header, the version of DTS:X designed with games, VR and AR applications, has actually been visible on the Microsoft Store for some time now, but without the app behind it being published.
No details have been released yet on which upcoming gaming titles might be getting DTS:X Ultra sound.
No exact rollout date for the DTS:X gaming update was confirmed in the tweet, rather that the feature is coming in 'the coming weeks’. The roll out to Xbox Insiders first.
