If you own both an Xbox Series X|S and a copy of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, you might be in for a good surprise.
The last game of the classic franchise’s reboot trilogy is now showing showing as an Xbox Series X|S optimized title — both on the console and on the Microsoft Store.
It is worth noting that while the game has the optimized stamp, it is not currently optimized. If previous cases are anything to go by, the logo usually shows up when a next-gen patch passes certification — it has happened most recently with A Plague Tale, GreedFall and The Elder Scrolls Online.
No official announcements were made so far. Interestingly, 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the franchise, and its social media has been pretty busy throughout the year celebrating the date in the most diverse ways.
Another interesting tidbit is that the game has received the FPS Boost treatment while maintaining its Xbox One X enhancements — so it already runs in a 4K resolution at 60 frames-per-second.
