Dolby Atmos, the ultimate sound experience, coming to Xbox One and Windows 10

The powerful sound of Dolby Atmos is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs and tablets starting next year.

With Dolby Atmos, sound moves precisely all around and above you. In a game like “Overwatch,” you can hear where your allies and enemies are in three-dimensional space, writes Spencer Hooks, Dolby Laboratories director of gaming. “Snipers on the roof? You’ll hear them over your left shoulder and know where to aim to take them out. The same goes for an attacker with a jet pack hovering behind you.”

Xbox will be the first game console to feature Dolby Atmos, and game developers are excited about using the new capabilities to make their games richer and more engaging, Hooks says.
