  • Microsoft has announced 74 new games with FPS Boost support on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, automatically increasing framerates of Xbox One titles.
  • The new lineup introduces new titles targeting 60 FPS and 120 FPS, through enhancements automatically enabled for most on the latest consoles.
  • The FPS Boost upgrades are now live for the latest titles on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

Microsoft has announced a new lineup of titles with FPS Boost support on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, boosting dozens of older Xbox One titles to higher framerates. The feature, previously debuted back in March, tweaks the performance of existing games with no developer input or code changes, increasing the target frames-per-second (FPS) when run on the latest generation consoles. The company has announced an expansion of the feature, introducing an additional 74 games, including major franchises like Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Deus Ex, and Tomb Raider.

The latest FPS Boost expansion brings the largest number of new games to date, increasing the list of Xbox FPS Boost games to 97, on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. That sees many titles formerly targeting 30 FPS achieve 60 FPS on the console, whereas others double to a 120 FPS output on the console.

The newcomers include former Xbox One games, onboarding top publishers like Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Deep Silver, and Square Enix. It comes after previous expansions brought new titles from Electronic Arts and Bethesda, rapidly expanding the list of 120 FPS games on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

FPS Boost comes automatically enabled with many supported titles, automatically bolstering performance over previous generation hardware. The feature can also be disabled on a per-title basis, in case of issues that arise with this technical trickery. The lineup of new FPS Boost titles follows, coupled with their new target framerates on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

  • Microsoft went out of their way to make the console experience as close to the PC experience as possible. Bravo to them.
  • This has given me a lot of motivation to keep investing in console games. The idea that there can actually be improvements over time, like on PC is such a big plus. Games are no longer 'trapped' in their original consoles.
  • Mad Max is on there!
  • BOOM! what an update. I was just coming off playing Alien Isolation the other day after having played Bioshock at 60fps and felt the need for a smoother experience on the former. Awesome news!
  • Hard to get excited about a console that still can't be purchased w/o going through eBay, etc. & the exorbitant markups. But good on ya for those who managed to snag one.
  • Waiting is always the hardest part...
    ...but almost as bad is finding nothing to play on the new box.
    MS is putting the hardware wait to good use, improving the firmware, SDK, and BC support.
    On that list the one I most want to see is Inquisition which was already plenty pretty at 30fps SDR.
  • Go follow GamesRadar stock stacker on Twitter. It's accurate and is helping people getting a series X or even letting you know days in advance when the next shipment arrives.. Dates, times, everything.
  • I have a feeling this list is about to get too big to even keep announcing the titles to everyone. I'm at the point now where the updates aren't giving me a chance to prioritize clearing my backlog because I already have 3 games to play with FPS Boost just in a month's time.
  • Xbox Series X, the console you can never buy.
  • It's easy, go on eBay and spend $900. Or you can do like the rest of us that actually got one and follow different websites and Twitter feeds and hop on it when you get a notification.
