We're all well aware that backwards compatibility is fantastic on Xbox Series X (and Series S), but unfortunately games with framerate caps are still forced to run at 30 frames-per-second in certain cases.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition, which was added to Xbox Game Pass earlier this week, is one of those games, but there's actually a trick that allows you to uncap the framerate through the power of mods.
As detailed in the video above, you can use the in-game Mods feature to search for something called "Uncap FPS", which reportedly doubles the framerate to 60FPS on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
So, without further ado, here's how you can do it:
- In the main menu, head to the 'Mods' option
- Search for "Uncap FPS"
- Download / Enable the mod
- Quit to the dashboard
- Start the game again, and you should be prompted that "mods are currently loaded"
- Play the game at 60FPS!
There's a downside to using Mods in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition in that it disables Achievements, although some folks over at Resetera have reportedly found a workaround for this if you really want them.
And of course, keep in mind that Bethesda warns to use mods "at your own risk", and that you may experience issues with them. But for now, this is the only way to play Skyrim at 60FPS on Xbox Series consoles.
