Digital Foundry has spent the weekend providing an in-depth analysis over some of the recently added EA titles to the FPS Boost library. The results seem to be impressive, with a particular emphasis being thrown to 120FPS players, which Digital Foundry has said is "fantastic news" for that group.
Focusing heavily on a number of Battlefield games, the analysis starts by focusing on Battlefield 4. Originally, the title was a cross-gen release between Xbox 360 and Xbox One, but the boost to 120FPS has quickly shown there's more life in the game. While the resolution is lower with FPS Boost enabled, the frame rate (especially in the campaign), provides a smooth experience. There are some noticeable drops in some of the multiplayer maps, but it's said that the game runs great on both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S with minimal drops.
As the series evolved its engine with Battlefield 1 and Battlefield V, the results of the FPS Boost are even better on both titles. With seemingly little else to say other than both games run "perfectly" on Xbox Series X|S, the 120FPS does a fantastic job at maintaining its framerate while delivering chaotic action. The resolution is said to drop to around 972p - close to the original Xbox One version - but the sacrifice for the frame boost seems to be worth the pay off.
Both Titanfall games, on the other hand, show some different results. Interestingly, only the sequel has FPS Boost enabled on both consoles, but again, manages to perfectly capture that 120FPS mode, with only a few drops on Xbox Series S. The resolution is said to drop to 810p when enabled, but the results are said to be "pretty awesome", as multiplayer matches can show multiple titans at once with not a single drop in frames. The original game on Xbox Series X is said to be "120FPS flat out from start to finish", but it's still surprising there's no Xbox Series S update.
It seems that even though there's a resolution drop, the upgrade to 120FPS is well worth it. There's still a whole array of games the team didn't check out, including both Star Wars Battlefront titles. If you've got a 120hz display, it seems like there's never been a better time to be an Xbox gamer.
