Xbox has announced the next set of backwards compatible titles that are now able to take advantage of the Xbox Series X|S FPS Boost feature and this time around it's a bunch of games from publisher EA.

Thirteen games have been given the treatment this month and thus see a boost to their original framerates of up to double their initial values, with the Xbox teams working with developers to ensure an enhanced experience without sacrificing original intent. Twelve of the games on this go around, including Battlefield V, Titanfall 2 and Star Wars Battlefront II get an upgrade to 120Hz support, while Sea of Solitude gets upped to 60Hz.

In order for the feature to work properly, however, some games have to take a slight hit to their resolution and in those rare cases the feature is not automatically enabled for Xbox Series X users. If you're happy to sacrifice resolution for the higher framerate, then you can toggle the feature on and off in the dashboard. Major Nelson has offered a useful video taking you through that process below, along with a handy spreadsheet over here for all FPS Boost titles so far to tell you if they're off by Default on Series X.

So far there's been two previous batches of FPS Boost games, with the first launching with the feature back in February before five Bethesda titles were added last month.

The full list of EA titles that have been upgraded with the FPS Boost feature this time around are as follows:

In some instances, because there are higher graphics requirements to enable FPS Boost technology, they’ve had to reduce a game’s resolution to ensure it both runs smoothly and plays great. In those select cases, FPS Boost is not automatically enabled for Xbox Series X gamers, but can easily be turned on under the Compatibility Options in the Manage game and add-ons setting. To experience FPS Boost and to be able to toggle the feature on and off, make sure your console has taken the latest update and you’ve rebooted your console.

Another slew of new FPS Boost enhanced games have come to next-gen Xbox consoles, bringing the total list to 97 titles. Notable FPS Boost games added lately include Halo Wars 2, Far Cry 5, and Assassin’s Creed Unity.

FPS Boost is a next-gen Xbox feature that improves a backwards-compatible game’s framerate and performance by up to 120Hz. This feature works on Xbox Series X (and some games functions on Xbox Series S), with older Xbox One or Xbox 360 titles via backwards compatibility. The full list of FPS Boost-enhanced games can be seen here.

For example, Assassin’s Creed Unity runs at 60Hz across Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, while Halo Wars 2 functions at 60Hz across both machines, as well. Other games like Battlefield 1 run at 120hz, but only on Xbox Series X, so it’s important to take a look at the full list to be sure if your console supports each game.

Thanks to FPS Boost, players are able to take full advantage of their Xbox Series X consoles, allowing them to experience older Xbox games with enhanced visuals. Many of them are available via Xbox Game Pass and EA Play, as well.

It’s worth considering that many games have the FPS Boost feature disabled by default on Xbox Series X (see the video in the post above). For instance, players will need to manually enable the feature with EA’s Anthem, as well as for Fallout 4, and Gears of War 4.

Microsoft will continue to expand the list of FPS Boost enhanced Xbox games over time. The list of compatible games has grown tremendously since the feature was first implemented earlier this year.
