Big Dragon Age fan? Then you'll be intrigued to hear that Dragon Age: Inquisition might be getting an 'FPS Boost' on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in the near future, and it was supposed to arrive as soon as this week!
The game was namedropped as part of the initial batch of titles on Major Nelson's podcast, but obviously it didn't end up surfacing along with the other five this past Wednesday, leading to the following response:
Major Nelson suggested that Dragon Age: Inquisition, like all the other initial games (aside from New Super Lucky's Tale), would be getting a 60FPS boost on the new systems, so hopefully it's still in the plans for the near future.
Xbox Series X director of project management Jason Ronald confirmed earlier this week that new titles would be added to the 'FPS Boost' program every couple of weeks over the next couple of months, so stay tuned!
Would you like to see Dragon Age: Inquisition get an FPS Boost for Xbox Series X and S? Let us know below.
Sunk 300+ hours into this amazing game and ready for a new character to do it all again!!
@CrazyJF Same here.
I'm just looking for an excuse to buy the DLCs, this would do it
I need to beat the first two games, I have them siyting in my backlog.
A strange coincidence given that I just started playing this about a week ago. Would be great to get the update hopefully around the same time I get my Series X.
All gaming seems to be taking a horrible turn into let’s do remakes, let’s flash up old games with resolution and fps.
Instead of all resources being focused on bringing new games to consoles.
This is backwards compatible doing this and for some it’s good, but when you have played the games you wanted to on the older consoles be it Xbox, Nintendo and PlayStation when they were first released it’s dam boring and makes backwards compatible suck.
Just leave the old games alone and make some new fresh games please developers.
This has to be the worst I have ever seen gaming for this and what a terrible direction it has all gone. Even the Nintendo direct the other day was the worst game presentation I have even seen and I have seen them all from all the companies.
Gaming in 2021 is stale as old bread.
@Dezzy70 Looks it’s one thing to think the back compat team needs to work on bring more back compat titles to Xbox.
It’s another to think a group of engineers not developers need to be making games. The back compat team isn’t taking resources away from those making new games. These are people that work on hardware and software compatibility. They did their big job in November making sure the XB1 games all work on the new systems. That’s what this guys do; they don’t make games.
Never played a Dragon Age game. Interested in this one, as it is included in GPU...
Is this one ok to begin, or should I play another title first ? Like "origin" or something ?
Even so, those guys making old games run better or making dam remakes for any developer or game console this isn’t just a Xbox thing, could use them in some way towards making new games. How about retraining them and re directing their focus.
Is the game business becoming that stagnant.
Someone pointed out on Push Square, that the tv and film industry does this all the time, remakes etc and that’s a valid point.
@Dezzy70 it’s not a valid point. The TV and Film industry doesn’t require degrees, literally it’s an experience thing. Retraining makes sense. Most people in that industry didn’t spend years going to college.
On the other hand these guys are engineers; what they do is still viable in multiple industries. It’s extremely selfish of you to expect them to be retrained for your video games. And also they could get jobs in their fields with other companies easily. You don’t go around expecting doctors to retrain to be as dentists because you can’t find one? Because that’s literally what your are suggesting.
And also they working on the hardware/software side doing things like improving quick resume so they are still needed doing those kinds of things.
Get your head out of your well where you’ve put it in. These “guys” aren’t the developers and that’s not what they are needed to do. This is just cake icing they’ve figured out.
@Dezzy70 There is still merit in enhancing older games. For one, people like to go back and replay some of their favourite games from time to time, and bumping up the resolution and doubling the framerate often makes it a transformative experience for them. For another, players' backlogs of games is only getting bigger by the day, so chances are there'll be at least one game you're yet to play which will receive an upgrade of some kind, meaning it'll be even better for when you do eventually get round to playing it.
As for gaming in 2021 being stale, it's still early days yet, both in the year and the generation. Given the current state of the world, games aren't likely to come as thick and fast as they used to, but there could still be a few pleasant surprises just around the corner. And even if there isn't, there must be something which slipped you by the first time. It could even be a game due to get framerate boost.
With Dragon Age Inquisition I'd much rather see a resolution bump given it is running at a staggering 900p.
If memory serves me right, I'm sure this was another 900p game that never got an X Enhanced version.
I'd love 60FPS, but not at 900p...
I loved the first DA game and completed it multiple times. I found the second to feel shallower and ended up giving up (probably not giving it a fair shot). I am tempted by Inquisition, but there are sooo many of these huge time investment games on my radar
@blinx01 Yep. 900p on Xbox, 1080p on PS4.
This is welcome news, I recently started playing it from scratch after abandoning my save game several years ago. Stupid life used to get in the way, but now due to the lockdown I have all the time I need to revisit my back catalogue.
