Back in February, the Xbox backwards compatible team launched FPS Boost, a method of getting older generation games to run at up to 120 frames per second on Xbox Series X/S consoles without any needed input from the original developers. The feature started off small, supporting just a handful of titles, but this week, Microsoft began ramping up, with 97 games now supported.
FPS Boost is a forward-thinking feature. Rather than simply running a last-gen game in its original state, features like Auto-HDR and FPS Boost can greatly enhance the experience instead. New titles supporting FPS Boost come from major franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Deus Ex and more.
Most of these titles see a double in frame rate, so 30 frames per second titles like Assassin’s Creed Unity will now run at 60 frames per second. Meanwhile, titles like Battlefield 4, which ran at 60 frames per second on last-gen consoles, can now run at up to 120 frames per second.
KitGuru Says: When FPS Boost was first announced, I quickly jumped back into Prey on my Xbox Series X to check it out. Hopefully we’ll see many more games supporting this feature moving forward.
