Microsoft has heavily marketed backward compatibility for their upcoming next-gen consoles. Both Xbox Series X and S will run games from the older generations of Xbox consoles with superior graphics and performance. Due to this, users are going to have thousands of games that they can play on launch day.

You can add one more to the list. Microsoft recently confirmed via a blog post that Xbox Series S will be able to play Fallout 4 at 60 FPS. The original Xbox One could only run the game at 30FPS. This is a major improvement, as the FPS is now doubled, not to mention that we are talking about the Series S, which is an inferior console compared to the Series X. Fallout 4 will probably perform even better on Xbox Series X. Check out the video showing Fallout 4 running at 60FPS below.

Do keep in mind that the double FPS in Fallout 4 doesn’t mean that every game is going to have that much improvement, or any improvement at all. Some games will not receive any major improvements. Higher framerates could even break animations or the physics of some older titles.

“Many improvements are the result of the custom designed processor that allows compatible games to play and leverage the increased CPU, GPU and memory from the new consoles. In addition however, the backward compatibility team has developed new methods for effectively doubling the framerate on select titles,” the blog post said. “While not applicable for many titles due to the game’s original physics or animations, these new techniques the team has developed can push game engines to render more quickly for a buttery smooth experience beyond what the original game might have delivered due to the capabilities of the hardware.”

Xbox Series X and S will be available worldwide on November 10.
