Five Bethesda Games Get FPS Boost on Xbox Series X|S

Written by on | OpenCritic

FPS Boost is a fairly new program Xbox has rolled out to provide framerate improvements to older games, and now five Bethesda games new to Game Pass have been announced to soon get boosted.

Dishonored: Definitive Edition, Fallout 4, Skyrim: Special Edition, Fallout 76, and Prey make up the next batch of FPS Boost-enabled games. This fivesome joins UFC 4, Watch Dogs 2, Far Cry 4, Sniper Elite 4, and New Super Lucky's Tale as the first ten games to receive the support since Microsoft announced the program earlier this month.

In four of the first five cases, the games were boosted from running at 30 frames per second to 60, though New Super Lucky's Tale was actually boosted from 30 to 120 frames per second - if you've got a fancy TV capable of outputting such a rate.

It's assumed that each of the new Bethesda games will be boosted to 60 frames per second. The update has not yet landed, but should in short order. As with Auto HDR, players can elect to disable the FPS boost if they prefer to play without it.

These five games joined 15 others this week as the newest games to arrive in Xbox Game Pass. All 20 were Bethesda titles, marking the special occasion of the Xbox and Bethesda merger, which was announced last year before months of legal proceedings made it finally official this past week. You can find the full list of new Bethesda games in Game Pass, as well as hear what Phil Spencer had to say about the future exclusivity plans for these games and more.
