Xbox Adds FPS Boost To Classic Xbox 360 Titles

During last night’s Xbox 20th anniversary celebrations it was announced that 37 Xbox games will receive an FPS Boost on Series X|S.

Earlier this year, a small handful of Xbox One games received the FPS Boost on Xbox Series X|S. Depending on the game, the framerate boost would jump to 60FPS or a super-smooth 120FPS. Over the months that followed, more games were continually added to the FPS Boost list.

However, during the Xbox 20th anniversary event, a further 37 Xbox 360 and Xbox One games were given the increased FPS treatment. The likes of Dead Space 2, Assassin’s Creed, F.E.A.R, Gears of War and more are now smoother than ever before.

Among the 37 titles given the FPS Boost, 26 games were existing backwards compatible titles, while 11 are completely new on both accounts.
