EA has confirmed its backwards compatible plans for a selection of titles on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S today, including the news that Star Wars: Squadrons will run at up to 120FPS on both systems.
You'll be able to choose from two different modes in the space combat title - better visual quality and better performance, with the former running up to 4K/60FPS on Xbox Series X and up to 1440p/60FPS on Series S, and the latter retaining those same resolutions at up to 120FPS, but without a newly improved lighting model.
There will also be a toggle for Variable Refresh Rates if your display supports it.
As for the other games, most of EA's backwards compatible titles will simply benefit from improved load times and smoother framerates on the new systems, although Apex Legends is getting a “performance boost” and will run at 1440p, with more extensive enhancements set to arrive for the battle royale next year.
Happy with this performance boost for Star Wars: Squadrons? Tell us down in the comments.
Will this be available at the Series X launch? This is one of the games I was looking forward to trying when I get the console/EA Play
Wow, literally the first 120fps Series S game that runs at 1440p. 😧👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
@graysoncharles Most Series S buyers will only have a 1080p TV anyway. Very few people will be buying one to hook up to a 1440p monitor and people who can afford a 4k TV don't want to compromise on getting the S
@Xiovanni well put
@graysoncharles good news indeed. I honestly don't mind 1080p on Series S but the machine itself is being advertised as 1440p60 console. The console hasn't even launched yet most game announced so far had 1080p resolution and it seems as not a good sign to me.
Moving forward games are going to be even more and more power hungry and in near future there will be advancements like more advanced rendering & lighting techniques also new engines specifically developed for next gen. It just worrying for me that more games in the future might have permanent or "up-to" resolutions below 1080p like 900p or(god please no) 720p.
If devs are able optimize and make their games runs at 1080p on Series S the entire generation, then that's fine
Interesting that there's no mention of 120 FPS mode for PS5.
