‘Fallout 4’ and other Bethesda games to get frame rate boost on Xbox
Microsoft launched the FPS Boost feature on the Xbox Series X and S in February to breathe new life into backward-compatible Xbox One titles. At the time, only five titles got the upgrade, so you can play older games at higher frame rates without mods. Now five more Bethesda games are get Support for FPS Boost: Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Prey, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Dishonored: Definitive Edition.
The newly added entries to the list of games with FPS Boost were revealed during the last episode of The official Xbox podcast with Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb of Xbox Live and Jeff Rubenstein, Senior Xbox Communications Manager. All five are available on Microsoft Game Pass, making them playable on Xbox and PC. Some, like Fallout 4, were added shortly after Bethesda officially is part from Xbox following Microsoft’s $ 7.5 billion deal to acquire ZeniMax Media and its video game publishers.
Games that support this feature see their frame rates doubled from 30 to 60 fps, although some can even be played at 120 fps on newer consoles. At the moment, it’s not entirely clear when exactly games receive FPS Boost. As Kotaku Note, the feature could arrive with the next major update for Xbox Series X and S, which will add settings to switch to HDR and FPS Boost for each individual game.
