Xbox FPS Boost adds 120Hz for 12 EA games, including Battlefield 4, Star Wars Battlefront II & Titanfall 2

Microsoft has announced the next batch of games to be enhanced with FPS Boost on Xbox Series X|S, adding 120Hz support for 12 Xbox One games, and 60 Hz for a 13th title.

Included are a whole slew of big multiplayer games, where 120Hz support can really help with reducing input latency and responsivity. All Battlefield, Star Wars Battlefront, Titanfall and Plants vs. Zombies games released for Xbox One have been enhanced to run enable 120Hz play. Alongside that you have Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Unravel 2 and Sea of Solitude. All of these games are available in EA Play, which is bundled into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

There is one caveat to this, which is that some games need to need to reduce the game resolution in order to reach 120Hz. In these instances, FPS Boost is off by default. This will essentially boil down to Xbox One X enhanced games being restricted to Xbox One S resolutions. This includes Battlefield 1, Battlefield V, PvZ Battle for Neighborville, Star Wars Battlefront II, Titanfall 2 and Unravel 2.

Here’s the list of supported games:

FPS Boost at 120hz:

  • Battlefield 1 – dynamic resolution up to 900P Xbox One S resolution –off by default
  • Battlefield 4 – 720p resolution
  • Battlefield 5 – dynamic resolution up to 900P Xbox One S resolution – off by default
  • Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – 720p resolution
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville – off by default
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare – 900p
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – 900p
  • Star Wars Battlefront II – dynamic resolution up to ~1000p from Xbox One S – off by default
  • Star Wars Battlefront – 720p resolution
  • Titanfall – 792p
  • Titanfall 2 – dynamic resolution around 810-828p from Xbox One S – off by default
  • Unravel 2 – off by default

FPS Boost at 60hz:

  • Sea of Solitude

The first five Xbox Series X|S games with FPS Boost were unveiled in February, with Microsoft picking Far Cry 4,New Super Lucky’s Tale, Sniper Elite 4UFC 4 and Watch Dogs 2 to have their frame rates doubled from 30 to 60fps or, in Super Lucky’s case, from 60 to 120fps. This was followed by a selection of Bethesda games: Dishonored Definitive Edition, Skyrim Special EditionFallout 4Fallout 76, and Prey.

FPS Boost works without needing to update the game code with a patch, and seamlessly occurs in the background for games where it’s enabled. However, it’s only for frame rate and not resolution.

We analysed how effective FPS Boost was for games like Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 where, much like the Xbox One X enhanced games in the EA Play group, FPS Boost limited them to running at 1080p.
