It looks as though the DayZ Xbox One X Enhanced release is confirmed as the official tracking list on Xbox has it noted. The game is listed as being "in development" for an enhancement and that honestly isn't at all surprising considering most similar survival games are also getting the treatment. I didn't expect it to be there so soon, and this could point to the game being present sooner than later. Whatever the case, it should look great on the premium console and hopefully they deliver some graphic options. For now all the details we have is that it's "coming soon" with a mention of 4k resolution with no current HDR support. When games are included on the Xbox One X listing page there's typically no reference for a release window of when they might get the update so it could happen at any point.
It will most likely be enhanced right upon regular launch on Xbox as opposed to post. For context, DayZ is an open world survival game with zombies. It's an intense style that gives players a never ending open adventure to take part in. Loot for items, deal with other possibly hostile players and just try to make it as far as you can. Death makes you lose everything and there are so many intricate elements that are attempting to wither you away. Fight against the undead, run from the living and see what you can do to find that special weapon out there in the wild. It won't be easy and hopefully it'll be well optimized as it enters Xbox Game Preview in 2018.
