As if Xbox fans needed another motivation to look forward to getting the Xbox One X when the powerful console is finally available, Bethesda has given them two more reasons to make the upgrade happen. Two of Bethesda’s most highly-anticipated games that were revealed during E3, The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus have been added to the lineup of games that’ll look beautiful on the Xbox One X.

If you visit the official Xbox website to see their catalog of games, you’ll notice that both of Bethesda’s games listed above now boast the Xbox One X Enhanced insignia with 4K Ultra HD visuals to look forward to.

Depending on what game you’re looking forward to the most, these updated visuals will deliver slightly different impact on gamers. If you’re hoping to pick up Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus when it releases in October, you can expect to see plenty of guns blazing as you tear through your opposition, carnage that’ll look that much better when it’s beefed up on the Xbox One X. You can catch a glimpse of some of that gameplay here in a recent trailer that was released for the upcoming game, a preview that shows off the combat while mixing it in with a twisted game show.

As far as messed up games go, you’ll still be able to get your fill of that in The Evil Within 2, though likely in a much different way. Having an Xbox One X Enhanced version of The Evil Within 2 might not be the best idea for the faint of heart given how the first game in the series handled all of the terror in the game. From jump scares to prolonged chases to some truly grotesque foes, The Evil Within 2 is probably going to be just plain terrifying to watch and play on the Xbox One X, and you won’t even need to play the first one to jump into the story.

The Evil Within 2 is scheduled for a release on Oct. 13 of this year, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is set to be released on Oct. 27.
