FPS Boost feature rollout begins for Xbox Series X|S

First batch of backward compatible titles updated to get the new framerate

Posted on

Microsoft has announced new details and the first batch of games that will support the FPS Boost feature on the Xbox Series X|S consoles.

FPS Boost promises to nearly double (and in a few instances, quadruple) the original framerate on select titles. The console maker partnered closely with developers to enhance the experience while maintaining the game’s original intent. And while not applicable to all games, these new techniques can push game engines to render more quickly beyond what the original game might have delivered due to the capabilities of the hardware at the time.

The first assortment of backward compatible titles that will support FPS Boost – available beginning today – are Far Cry 4, New Super Lucky’s Tale, Sniper Elite 4, UFC 4, and Watch Dogs 2. New Super Lucky’s Tale can now run up to 120 frames per second (fps) and UFC 4 delivers improved framerate performance specifically on Xbox Series S and can now run at 60fps.

New menu icons and system settings are coming in a system update. Starting this Spring, you can go into the “Manage Game” section for any title, where you’ll be presented with a new “Compatibility Options” button that will allow you to toggle FPS Boost (as well as Auto HDR) on or off. There will also be a new indicator informing you when a game is running with FPS Boost whenever you hit the Xbox Button on your controller.

More titles featuring FPS Boost are promised soon.
