Major Nelson: "Today, we're releasing our largest drop of games featuring FPS Boost to date, bringing the total titles boosted to 97, many of which are included in @XboxGamePass and @EAPlay (included with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription)"
Just started Yakuza 6 last night, so great timing for me!!! Hopefully the rumoured Rez boost starts rolling out for some of these titles too.
does XBXS also decreases loading times? that would be awesome as well. I am assuming it is the way the games are coded and will have to patched by devs.
To your point, I imagine the biggest change with loading times would HAVE to come from developer involvement. So besides maybe just having faster hardware now, I imagine load time gains would otherwise be minimal?
Yes Series S improves load times on those games so long as they are installed to the SSD. And I noticed 13 of the games arent supported on Series S. 84 of them are though, so thats good to know.
Yeah, I've been watching my friend play Prey on a Series S and it's like night and day compared to my One X
Any game installed to the SSD of either the Series S or X, has improved loading times, regardless of any patches. The same will apply to the PS5, any PS4 game installed will have a reduction on loading time. Once we get to the next-gen games with full PS5/Series S|X SSD optimization, loading times will be down to minimal levels.
Cool. Might give a few of these a go. Busy playing Returnal atm. Edit: I just saw Dying Light on this list...sweet
Batman arkham knight needs this support.
Yeah first game I looked for in the list as I'm trying to get all achievements. Wish AC origins and Odyssey were on it too. Still got lots of fun things to test out when I get home!
Bruh I still haven't played those yet wtf am I doing!!! Are they on GP?
@chief No AC games are on GP. I'm just meaning in general. Arkham Knight is tho.
That game needs a resolution boost too. It's pretty jagged on Xbox One.
This is pretty cool they main feature I would love on PS5.
For sure - people in here downvoting left and right are just because its only available on xbox right now. Its a very impressive feature that hopefully can become more common overtime (and on more platforms)
@optimus Yea they had to throw 7 bill at a ready to go studios other wise they be up shit creek even more than they are now. Can u tell me what games the ms studios have produced over the last 3-4 years.... ill wait :) Im sure we can count them on one hand.
Assassins creed unity and life is strange for me. Hopefully dishonered 2 soon
+1 Dishonored 2. It’s hard to enjoy it at 30fps after replaying the first at 60.
I uninstall dishonered 2 last month when they started with fps boost the other 2 dishonered games have fps boost but I've already finished part 1 might have to pick up DOTO one day
Pretty cool - impressive what they’ve been able to pull off without modifying game code.
Super awesome. Keep em coming!
Is there a list filter on the store ? the store is kinda misleading, it's different than the xbox one version ,it doesn't show the whole catalog at once .
I was looking for the same thing and found this: https://www.majornelson.com...
This is a cool feature for the console space but one I’m personally not into. Currently I do not have a 120fps tv so happy it helps those who do. But I really don’t like the resolution drops they take going to 60fps.
Most games added don't take a hit on resolution
Every review I have seen has said they all take a hit. As for me the ones that I would play all take a hit as I’m not going to play every game on this list just because they had a FPS boost.
The games with the check marks are the ones that lower to the One S spec to achieve higher resolution: https://majornelson.com/fps... There's a lot that maintain One X spec at higher frames. Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Halo Wars 2 for example.
@ProLogy I’ll wait for more tech analysis on these new additions( although I’m sure we won’t get a full analysis it’s to many games.) but again as far as i have seen it doesn’t always retain the profile and there’s no evidence to suggest it will always retain higher resolution since MS strictly focuses on marketing the FPS increases without declaring the resolutions. This shouldn’t be an issue making this statement as it’s a reasonable thought process. I’m not saying the technology is trash or anything I just don’t have the benefits of 120 and again the games I would play take a hit. I have no plans to play games I found boring before again just because they are at a higher Frame rate or even if they were at a higher resolution. But I would personally prefer high resolution 1440p-4K at average 60 FPS minimum 30.
Some of them take res hits some don't. The worst by far is Battlefield 4 it was already 720p on xbox one setting it to 120fps I swear it must goto 600p if that. The 120fps modes is OK I tried it in a few games eg black ops my monitor does 1080p 120fps it seems quicker and more twitchy I can see why its better for compo or league use but I found whacking it back to 4k 60 is better much better
This isn't just 120fps boost. Microsoft has updated games like Watch Dogs 2 from 30fps to 60fps.
Exactly this. The jump in fluidity from 30 to 60 is game changing. I was playing Alien Isolation for a couple of hours the day before these boosts went live. I just tried it again now and it vastly improves the experience. I never want to see a game running at 30 frames again!
Need Forza Motorsport 7 with 240fps boost
Bit they don't tried em awhile ago no option yet
This is xbox gaming news. Not games, but the same article about how many blah blah blah for their services. Sorry but I got tired the last fifty times I read the same article with a lower number of titles.
Just because it doesn’t appeal to you doesn’t mean it is irrelevant to everyone. I might’ve missed these games being boosted if not for this news article.
But yet your here, reading another article........
Didnt read anything except title, came to express my disappointment with the business model of not delivering games, and creating PR articles instead of gaming news.
This is cool and all but I wish they would get back to expanding the BC list. Ridge Racer 6 and the lack of classic DOA games is absurd imo lol
Xbox really is the best place for retro gaming. I wouldn't mind some new exclusive game though.
Nice, keep them improvements coming MS!!!
If anyone has ac unity try it out it's tremendous
Sony should at least update all 1st part games to 60 fps
they just make you pay for it
The 60fps patch for R&C was free so....
Kepp up the good pace and may you do this to games I have not played before so I can enjoy this.
Alien isolation is so great now.....exept being totally freaked out ALL the time :-)
