Skyrim, Other Bethesda Games Getting An FPS Boost On Xbox Series X
Microsoft appears to be wasting no time following its recent official acquisition of ZeniMax and, subsequently, Bethesda. Earlier this week, it was announced that a total of 20 Bethesda games were being added to Xbox Game Pass as of March 12th, making Microsoft’s Subscription service even more of an excellent deal than it already is. Now, it’s been revealed that a few of those games – including Skyrim – will also be getting an FPS Boost for the Xbox Series X/S.
The news comes by way of the most recent recording of the official Xbox podcast featuring Xbox’s Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson) and Jeff Rubenstein. While the bulk of the podcast is spent discussing other topics such as the new Xbox Wireless Headset, it is also revealed that a total of five Bethesda games will all be getting the FPS Boost option on Xbox Series X/S. These titles are The Elder Srolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Dishonored: Definitive Edition, and Prey.
Those that would prefer to play the above games at their original framerates for any reason will still be able to do so. Jeff Rubenstein confirmed that the FPS Boost will be a simple toggle on consoles, adding that those that choose to take advantage of the FPS Boost will see an “increase from 30 up to nearly 60 frames per second.” Enabling the boost will require that players update their systems to the latest version.
