Microsoft has confirmed the next set of games for the Xbox Series that will get an FPS boost. These are the majority of Bethesda games including Prey.
Prey, Skyrim, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and Dishonored. Not a bad start. Hopefully we get it for Dishonored 2 and some other titles in the future.
I feel fortunate to play these games for the first time at 60fps :)
I do too with my 2070 super rtx graphics card :)
Then you'll be in for a treat. The Bethesda CEO slipped up and said they have Skyrim running at 4k.
phoenixwing You realize the psychology behind your statement? You’re compensating.
Haven't you had a PC for the last 10 years?
@ smok I'm just joining in the sentiment of playing games at 60fps and above. I didn't buy a gaming pc until last April and I've been enjoying it.
I think this is awesome that they’re able to do this. Having higher framerates are a great thing.
Just installed dishonered 2 Il start to play properly when it's updated
try to give Prey a shot sometime, it's one of the most underrated games of last gen imo.
I've had Prey for ages on EGS just never got round installing it. I've got 3 months game pass ultimate so I may just install it on here. Loved the original Prey also
I want to see what it does for Arkham Knight.
What a week for Xbox gamers. The work and the money the people at Xbox invest in their hardware, services, features and games is ridiculous.
Good to see Greenburg underpromising and overdelivering. In the past he'd needlessly overhype things, but when he mentioned FPS Boost for Bethesda games yesterday...he cleverly said "Not yet", leading everyone to believe that it was something we'd get down the road.
That is quite a bit of hyperbole. This week we saw: 1) Finalize a deal that was announced last year and was expected to go through 2) 20 Zenimax games come to gamepass. Pretty much a given when the deal came thru 3) FPS boost for Zenimax related games, again not so shocking. There was not a single new game or gameplay from a new game showed this week.
Something to be clear about: there wasn't 20 Zenimax games added to Game Pass this week. Almost half of those were already on Game Pass.
Thanks for the clarification, I guess everyone can be less excited about it now thanks to you downplaying something positive for Xbox but that's not so shocking.
So because it was not a new game announced or new gameplay, people shouldn't be excited? You are trying way too hard to downplay this. We can expect things to happen, but until they do, there are various things that could prevent them from happening. Rejoice people, rejoice.
https://twitter.com/XboxGam... Not this week but soon. People are speculating that it’s either Stalker 2 or Outriders.
And their next gen game will be first on the ps5....
They explicitly stated that this was just a welcoming of sorts and to allow people to meet the devs. There was never a promise of any new game reveals or mentions. If you were disappointed by the news they shared it's because YOU created your own expectations.
“ There was not a single new game or gameplay from a new game showed this week.” Because that wasn’t the point? This week was all about MS and their successful acquisition of Bethesda/Zenimax. They said they will have another show in the summer to announce more games. “ And their next gen game will be first on the ps5” And most likely will be the last one as well. You might as well say goodbye to future Elder Scroll and Fallout and many others on the PS system.
@Neonridr I had no expectations this week. And it was good, but nothing really great happened.
It's old games again
finally talking some sense. I really don't get these crowds cheering about old games
I mean considering the event was repeatedly said to contain NO news regarding new games or announcements for them and that the event shouldn't be treated as such, you should consider enjoying the fact that some big things still happened. This event was an "allow me to re-introduce myself" for the deal being finalized. Also that Greenburg didn't overhype and overpromise was nice
@UnholyLight I have no problems with the events and how Microsoft did or did not hype them. I have a problem with fans saying "What a week for Xbox gamers" and going on some wild comment about how microsoft is so great. They are a company and are after gamer's money. That is all they really want.
Skyrim official 60fps nice!
Only on the 16 bit Xbox Senesis X. Blast Processing. Get the 16 bit Xbox Senesis X with Altered Beast, Sonic and Revenge of Shinobi blast processing 60fps. XSenesis what SonyNintendon't
Shiken how exactly was my comment mentally challenged? I dont understand Explain.
Sony fanboys are so delusional. Series X has WAY more updated games! These are games I already owned and am playing. I am glad I went Series X first. Also Quick Resume is amazing! Some fanboy said "I don't need quick resume, I am only playing...." can't remember which game. Being able to stop one game and immediately go to another one I am playing, with less than a 10 second gap, and be right where I left off is fantastic I make progress on one game, and go to another! No loading!
Quality on PlayStation tho, not quantity 🤦
Quick resume + game pass is really a great combo for us short attention span casual gamers.
Not casual. Hardfukkincore. I gain almost 2500+ gamerscore each month, not from "easy" games, mind you. I try to unlock almost all the achievements I possibly can for most games I play, and I also play Warzone or Halo MCC/5 and Gears 5 almost every week with friends, and Apex almost daily with my girlfriend. Quick resume is great for pausing solo games to do a match or two+ with friends etc and then go back quickly after.
I don’t care about quick resume either. Got any insults for me? People sometimes...
Everyone celebrate, not a single showing of anything new for xbox....yet again.
Why be upset at good things because of something totally unrelated?
What has Sony shown that's new recently? You had that State of Play last week that showed the same 8 games we've seen for a year plus a Final Fantasy update.
Huh? This wasn't a game showcase...
The team doing FPS boost is not the same team that works on new games... And I think it’s safe to say with Zenimax now being owned by MS - new games are most definitely coming.
Skyrim at 60fps on consoles, i guess i have to beat this game again for the 5th time. I hope they can get 4k60 but regardless ive put 800 hours into this game and it keeps getter better everytime i play it. Skyrim is one of the greatest rpgs of all time its really a masterpiece.
Skyrim is a Timeless Classic. I liken it to a Lord of the Rings level of masterpiece and charm. The must play "LOTR" of the video game industry. It has it's flaws, but for an Adventure RPG, it's still one of the best of all time. I'm currently on my 3rd full playthrough. Not counting characters I stopped playing. I usually play Argonian. The thought of semi-realistic Lizard People tickles my fancy.
Very good stuff!
Do these games work right away or do I have to wait until a console update ?
Very cool, Prey was a great game but the console versions were very rough at 30fps, this will make it like a new game.
Xbox One X also had an opportunity and... well... Why don't they update games for Xbox One X, too? It is a console with 6TFLOPS GPU and 12 GB RAM, more than Xbox Series S offers on those aspects.
This is disappointing, considering that these are old games and that The Evil Within 2 for example received a 60fps upgrade months ago (also Doom eternal confirmed upgrades). I've been wanting to dip back into both Prey and Dishonered and had been hoping for a PS5 patch at some point, but no dice I guess. To be clear, I already own all these old Bethesda games on my PC (and can play 60fps/4k) so I'm not complaining here about not getting these because I don't have an xbox~ I'm more interested in losing the ability to play on what is (IMO) the best platform, that is, the one that has a controller that drastically improves every gaming experience (PS5). So, as a consumer, I'm dissapointed by losing the option to play my preferred way; I would've happily double-dipped on these older titles to replay them on my TV~ but I'm not going to do that to get the same experience I already had years ago on my PC.
I don’t see a date, does anyone know when this will be in effect
