After this Start of the FPS Boost function in February With a handful of games, Microsoft has announced that five more games, all from Bethesda, will soon receive FPS Boost support.
This message comes from the last episode of The official Xbox podcast. In its opening section, Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb and Xbox Senior Communications Manager Jeff Rubenstein discussed Bethesda’s recent acquisition by Microsoft. To celebrate the deal, a couple new Bethesda games have been added to Game Pass. What I’m more excited about, however, is that five Bethesda games on duty will soon receive FPS Boost support, a feature that will allow older games to run on the Xbox Series X and Series S at higher frame rates.
The five games in question are Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Loot, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, and Dishonored: Definitive Edition.
Something interesting if your into this stuff is this Fallout 4 was one of the The first games we saw with FPS Boost back before the new feature had an official name. In a short video that was offered last October without much context, Microsoft presented Fallout 4
The podcast didn’t specify an exact date when these latest games should be expected to receive FPS Boost support. It sounds like it could happen if that next major Xbox Series X / S update Rollouts that add per-game settings that allow players to toggle Auto HDR and FPS Boost for games that support it.
I recently checked out FPS Boost and came away very impressed. Older games felt more modern and playable without the need for additional mods or downloads. I’m curious to see something like that Fallout 76 runs with FPS Boost as performance is notoriously poor on consoles. But now that Fallout 76 is pretty goodIt would be great to see how things do better on the next generation Xbox consoles.
