FPS BOOST, OTHER 73 COMPATIBLE TITLES
As mentioned, Microsoft’s vision not only looks at the present to the future, but also aims to use the new generation hardware to enhance the past. In this sense FPS Boost, presented in mid-February, is a tool that allows developers to adapt their games in order to make them perform at their best on Xbox Series X and S, exponentially increasing the frame rate, as suggested by the name.
And with numerous EA titles hitting the supported list in late April, it’s time to welcome ben 74 other titles that will benefit from FPS Boost, thus bringing the grand total to 94. Among the latest additions there are notable names such as Assassin’s Creed Unity, Deus Ex Mankind Divided, Wasteland 3, Far Cry 4 and 5, Alien Isolation, Life is Strange 1 and 2, Mad Max, Shadow of The Tomb Raider, Metro 2033 and Last Light, Yakuza 6, and Dying Light.
