Fallout 4, along with four other Bethesda Games titles, will be getting an FPS boost on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Here’s what we know…
Fallout 4, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, Prey, and Dishonored: Definitive Edition will all be getting an FPS boost on the next-gen Xbox consoles.
Microsoft is giving these games FPS boosts to keep up with the strength of the hardware that will be in the Xbox Series X/S. Considering Skyrim has been quite literally ported to a pregnancy test, I think Microsoft knew they’d have to update a few older titles in order to keep them somewhat relevant.
Otherwise, players would simply stick to playing said games on PC. Microsoft would be content with that, I’m sure, but many gamers buy games on more than one platform (guilty as charged). Microsoft probably wants to keep an incentive behind continuing to so do.
The thing I’m most excited about the five Bethesda games getting an FPS boost is being able to use more frames to ignore Preston whining about a settlement needing help. Or watching me fly into the sky with a little bit smoother flailing, after a Giant got tired of me trying to lockpick his chest full of old cheese and mammoth dung.
