You can experience Dolby Vision gaming and Dolby Atmos on Xbox Series X|S, but which games support both of these technologies?
Dolby Atmos support has been on the block since Xbox One debuted back in 2017, and it’s now arrived on Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. A licence is required to use the spatial audio tech on headphones, but it’s free to use on soundbars and speakers. Some headphones come with a free license, like the Xbox Wireless Headset.
Spatial audio, especially, is easy to come by this time of year. As Cyber Monday 2022 sales kick off on and around November 28, it’s a great time to check out some fantastic deals on the best gaming headsets and Cyber Monday Xbox deals in general. Keep updated with all the best deals with our Cyber Monday Live Blog.
Dolby Vision gaming requires a compatible display but is also accessible to those who can enable it. Currently, however, not every TV that supports Dolby Vision gaming can output at 120Hz, but Microsoft and Dolby are working closely with TV manufacturers to update more displays. That’ll take place via a firmware update in the future, which previously happened with the LG CX.
If you’re looking to make the most out of this, make sure you check how to enable 120Hz on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S first. Otherwise, check out the full list below for every Xbox Series X|S game with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support. We’ve also compiled a complete list of PS5 and Xbox Series X games with 120fps support, if you’re interested.

Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos Xbox Series X: FAQs
(Image credit: Dolby)
What is Dolby Vision gaming?
Dolby Vision is a HDR format that promises to deliver greater highlights, contrast, and vibrant colors over other HDR technologies. Dolby Vision automatically tone maps compatible games, too, which means players won’t have to manually calibrate every game to get the best possible HDR experience.
What is Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos provides convincing spatial audio that lets you hear sound with 360-degree pinpoint accuracy. It works on any headphones, and a number of Xbox Series X|S games already include native Dolby Atmos support and sound fantastic.
Does PS5 support Dolby Vision gaming and Dolby Atmos?
No, the PS5 does not support Dolby Vision gaming or Dolby Atmos. Instead, Sony’s console uses HDR10 when it comes to high dynamic range and its proprietary Tempest 3D audio tech for spatial audio. You’ll need an HDR display to experience HDR10, and 3D audio works with any headphones and can also be played through your TV speakers.
