Microsoft brings FPS Boost support to 13 EA games on Xbox Series X/S today

Battlefield 5! Titanfall 2! Star Wars Battlefront 2! More!

If you just can't get enough of those video game frames, Microsoft has a bit of treat for you today in the form of FPS Boost support for 13 EA titles, including Battlefield 5, Titanfall 2, and Star Wars Battlefront 2.

FPS Boost, which debuted back in February, is designed to increase frame rates of legacy Xbox One games when run on Xbox Series X/S - pushing them up to 120fps for certain titles.

To date, we've seen FPS Boost support for the likes of Skyrim, Dishonored, Sniper Elite 4, Watch Dogs 2, and Fallout 76, but as of today, 22nd April, that selection has been expanded to include 13 more titles, all from the EA Play catalogue - which can also be accessed as part of an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Here are the games, and their respective frame rate boosts, in question:

  • Battlefield 1 (120hz on Series X)
  • Battlefield 4 (120hz on Series X and S)
  • Battlefield 5 (120hz on Series X)
  • Mirror's Edge Catalyst (120hz on Series X)
  • Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (120hz on Series X and S)
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (120hz on Series X and S)
  • Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 (120hz on Series X and S)
  • Sea of Solitude (60hz on Series X and S)
  • Star Wars Battlefront (120hz on Series X and S)
  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 (120hz on Series X)
  • Titanfall (120hz on Series X)
  • Titanfall 2 (120hz on Series X and S)
  • Unravel 2 (120hz on Series X and S)

Microsoft notes some of the games on the list have seen their resolution reduced when FPS Boost is active to ensure a smoother experience. In these instances, FPS Boost isn't automatically enabled but can be turned on using the relevant setting in Compatibility Options, as detailed in today's announcement post.

Digital Foundry previously offered its thoughts on Microsoft's FPS Boost technology if you'd like to know more.
