After completing the acquisition of Zenimax / Bethesda this week, Microsoft has given an online presentation to polish why this business is beneficial to all. Although no games have been announced or presented yet, yesterday Bethesda 20 titles have also been made available on Xbox Game Pass. In hindsight, there were rumors that some of the newly captured games would also harness the power of the next generation of Xbox consoles.
During the official Xbox podcast yesterday, it was revealed that five Bethesda games on the Xbox Series X and S will also receive an FPS boost. IGN America. These five games are Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Dishonored: Definitive Edition, and Prey. FPS Boost does exactly what we expect from its name: it runs games at a higher image refresh rate. During the podcast it was said that we can actually expect “around 60 fps” on netxgen consoles. To run the boost, you’ll need the latest version of the console OS, and the one who prefers 30fps for some reason doesn’t have to use the setting.
Although this patch is now announced for these Bethesda games as it is owned by Microsoft, the FPS boost is not only available for their games. Another more niche feature of the Bethesda acquisition is Phil Spencer says other Xbox teams will be able to use the id Tech graphics engine as well. It is true, players may ultimately want the best to achieve the best possible new games through cooperation.
