up to 97 Xbox Series S and X titles perform better at up to 120Hz on-screen and get activated

Microsoft has introduced a noticeable improvement for some of the games that make up the catalog of titles available for Xbox Series S and Series X. It is not only the arrival of new titles, but an improvement such as FPS Boost that will improve the functioning of Games.

FPS Boost is an exclusive feature of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Available from February 2021, Microsoft is now announcing that it will reach over 70 compatible titles that will improve the performance of the screen.

Up to 120 Hz on screen

FPS Boost is an upgrade that a number of backward compatible titles can benefit from. Thanks to FPS Boost, the frame rate can be doubled or quadrupled, providing a much smoother gaming experience. A hardware-based improvement and that’s why it’s exclusive to Microsoft’s most powerful consoles.

In this sense, we see that there are titles like Star Wars: Battlefront II or Titanfall, which thanks to FPS Boost will be able to run at 120Hz, while other games like Skyrim or Fallout 4 will now watch at 60Hz, this which is a huge improvement.

With this update, a total of 97 backward compatible Xbox games will be able to better exploit the potential of the new consoles by increasing the smoothness of the game.

Of course, in order to use FPS Boost we will not have to receive an update, although it is necessary to have the latest update released for the console. What will be needed is to activate FPS Boost by hand.

The most comfortable way to do this is to use the vertical menu that appears when you press the Xbox button on the remote. In this menu we have to choose the game in which we want to activate the FPS Boost and press the Menu button (to the right of the Xbox button with three horizontal lines) and we will see a new window unfold.

In the new window, we select “Manage games and add-ons”. Among all the data, we will be looking at “Compatibility Options”. One of them will be the “FPS Boost” and this is the one we need to activate.

If the games allow the use of 60Hz, which happens in almost all Xbox Series S titles, you will be able to enjoy a good number of TVs. For Xbox Series X titles that allow 120Hz, you’ll need a TV with a Full HDMi 2.1 connection to take advantage of this enhancement. These are all supported titles.
