With the Zenimax acquisition agreement’s finalization, Microsoft has welcomed multiple high-sounding studios, such as Bethesda and id Software, under its wing in one fell swoop.
To celebrate the event, the company made 20 games from the publisher available on Game Pass, including Skyrim, Doom, and Fallout 4. All very nice, of course, but the surprises don’t stop there: Xbox players fans of Bethesda titles, in fact, will soon receive a nice bonus from having fun with.
During the latest episode of Major Nelson’s podcast, Xbox’s Jeff Rubenstein revealed that five Bethesda titles would soon be able to take advantage of FPS Boost, a feature that leverages the computing power of Xbox Series X / S to double if don’t quadruple the base frame-rate of certain titles.
Among the famous 20 available on Game Pass, the five games are Dishonored Definitive Edition, Skyrim Special Edition, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and Prey. FPS Boost will turn these 30fps titles into 60fps experiences.
We remind you that the FPS Boost feature does not require patches or updates from the developers: the credit is all of the Xbox backward compatibility team, which managed to integrate this automatic improvement by exploiting the strength of the next-gen consoles.
At the moment, we don’t know when the five Bethesda titles will receive the FPS Boost, but Microsoft is planning a system update for the Xbox console next March 16th so that we can expect some news soon.
