Well, this kind of came out of the blue! The team behind 2019 action-RPG Vampyr has announced today that the game has received an update for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S (and PS5), bringing "enhanced performance".

Now, the game has the ability to run at up to 1440p at 60fps on Xbox Series X, while Xbox Series S retains the same resolution but at a lower framerate of 30fps. Xbox One X, meanwhile, sits at 1296p at 30 FPS.

Here's the full breakdown of the new resolutions and framerates:

  • PS5: 1440p / 60 FPS
  • PS4 Pro: 1440p / 30FPS
  • XSX: 1440p / 60 FPS
  • XSS: 1440p / 30FPS
  • Xbox One X: 1296p 30 FPS

The update is live right now on Xbox if you own the game, but as far as know it's not a native optimisation, so don't expect Vampyr to show up in any 'Optimised for Xbox Series X|S' lists anytime soon.

Still, it's definitely a welcome upgrade!
