After more Bethesda games were added to Xbox Game Pass as a result of Microsoft's purchase of the company, five of the titles have now received an FPS boost. But you can decide whether you want to use it at all.
Games become even smoother
Do you want Bethesda games to be even smoother and with 60 instead of 30 fps on the Xbox Series X? (buy now ) or experience S? No problem. These titles have now received an update:
- Dishonored: Definitive Edition
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
- Fallout 4
- Fallout 76
If you activate the boost, then you can enjoy the games with 60 fps. But if you want to continue to experience the titles as you know them from before, then deactivate the boost.

"While playing, simply press the Xbox button on your controller to see a clear overlay display in the upper right corner. It signals whether your current game is using FPS Boost or Auto HDR. To use the FPS Boost for the updated Bethesda- To use titles, update your console to the latest update and restart – and you're good to go! ", Says Microsoft. So you can decide for yourself how you want to experience the titles.
