The Wild West favourite - which was initially released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 back in 2010, and will see a sequel on the latest consoles later this year - received updates along with a number of other titles this week, which will give it a new lease of life.

The enhancement will allow the game to run at higher resolution along with other visual improvements on the Xbox One X.

It's achieved using the Heutchy Method, which "leverages the power of Xbox One X to let the Xbox 360 emulator present the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets - all without touching the game code".

'Gears of War 2', 'Portal 2', 'Darksiders', and 'Star Wars: The Force Unleashed' have all received the same treatment, while an upgraded 'Sonic Generations' has also joined the backwards compatible library.

It comes as the collection of older titles is set to grow further, with another 19 original Xbox games soon to be made available over two batches this month, on April 17 and 26.

Included in the collection are the likes of 'The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind', 'Panzer Dragoon Orta', 'Conker: Live & Reloaded' and 'Jade Empire'.
