Reaction: FPS Boost On Xbox Series X Just Keeps Getting Better And Better

When FPS Boost first got announced, the initial selection wasn’t earth shattering, but it showed promise for Xbox Series X|S owners for what this feature could bring. Titles such as Far Cry 4 and New Super Lucky’s Tale got some impressive boosts in their frame rate when they dropped, and this was only the beginning. Since then, a whole array of Bethesda and EA games have been subjected to the same treatment and boasted impressive results. Even the tech wizards at Digital Foundry have been stunned by how well these games perform.

So today’s announcement of over 70 games being implemented with FPS Boost, which has more than doubled the amount that was already available, is a big win for Xbox Series X|S owners. Unlike previous selections which have mostly stuck with one publisher, we’ve seen a wide array of games added, with there being very little chance there isn’t something for you within. You have titles all the way back from the beginning of the Xbox’s lifespan such as Watch Dogs, along with more recent entries, including Wasteland 3. The amount of variety is incredible, and it’s proving to be another showcase of support for backwards compatibility from Xbox.

It could have been easy for the team to simply bring other original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games over to the Series X|S, but the work that they’re continuing to do proves that there’s a genuine love for preserving these classic titles. That couldn’t be more apparent in how simple it is to turn FPS Boost on or off. At the press of a button in the options, you’re able to play the game how you like. Just because a game runs at 60FPS or 120FPS, doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what you want – and Xbox knows that. By adding the ability to fine tune your experience, the Xbox Series X|S experience really feels tailored to how you want to enjoy games.
