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.

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.
