Games getting ultra-high 120fps include Battlefield (1, 4 & V), Titanfall (1 & 2), STAR WARS Battlefront (I & II), Unravel Two, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (1 & 2), and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.
“Higher, steadier framerates make games visually smoother, resulting in more immersive gameplay,” said Microsoft in a release.
The higher frame rate feature also means 60fps for games such as Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Prey, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, to name a few.
However, higher frame rates may require a reduction of video resolution. So, by default FPS Boost is turned off. Look at the settings Manage Game and add-ons > Compatibility options > FPS Boost to enable and disable.
On May 3, Xbox added 74 more games to the list getting FPS Boost (either 60fps or 120fps) including Assassin’s Creed titles, Deus Ex Mankind Divided, and Mad Max to name a few. That brings the total number up to 97. See the list of FPS Boost games available with Xbox Series X and Series S consoles on Microsoft’s blog.
How do you ensure higher frame rates? Here’s a tip from Microsoft: “To experience FPS Boost and to be able to toggle the feature on and off, make sure your console has taken the latest update and you’ve rebooted your console.”
