In separate news Microsoft via its MajorNelson blog shared that now a total of 97 games support FPS Boost. This latest development brings the addition of 74 new games to the FPS Boost feature.

The list of new games that support FPS Boost includes Alien Isolation, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 5, Deus Ex Mankind Divided, Dirt 4, and more. However, some of these games only support the FPS Boost feature on the Xbox Series X, but not on the Series S. Whereas some of these games like Moto GP20 and Steep support the feature on Xbox Series S and not Series X.
