Hello.

Your console will likely be suffering from a cold joint under the GPU in the section where the scaling unit is located.
Once the processor gets hot like in the game the cold joint gradually looses contact which leads to artifacts.
The problem is going to become more and more permanent until you get a general hardware error which will be indicated by your console showing one red light and an error message on the screen.

Make sure that your console is getting enough fresh cold air to rule out that it is overheating because in rare cases this can cause artifacts as well.

If your console is covered by the warranty I would suggest waiting for the console to get that error, then you can call Xbox Support and they will fix your console free of charge(if it is covered by the warranty, thats 1 year from the date of purchase).
In case it doesnt show an error yet or your console is older than 1 year they are going to charge you around 120$ for the repair.

If you cant or dont want to wait for it to die completely you could also try to fix it on your own, on our website you can find a detailed step by step tutorial that will lead your through the repair process, here is the link: http://xbox-experts.com/e/tutorial.php?n=hybrid
