Three fan-favorite games are about to receive a major upgrade on the Xbox One X.

To celebrate the launch of the Xbox One X, which is capable of playing games in full 4K, Microsoft is giving certain classic games a facelift. Skate 3, Mirror’s Edge, and Gears of War 3 have already all joined the Xbox backward compatibility program, and now they’re getting the full enhanced treatment.

Skate 3 is perhaps the most welcome surprise of these three. The game released to favorable reviews in 2010 before getting a huge surge in popularity in 2014, mostly due to the game’s hilariously over-the-top ragdoll physics.

The three new games will join Halo 3, Assassin’s Creed, Fallout 3, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on the list of games getting a graphical upgrade. Microsoft announced that this first batch of games would feature “higher resolution, 9X the original pixel count, and expanded color details,” so we can assume that these new additions will get a similar treatment.

The Xbox One X launches today, November 7th.
