How would you like to step up to higher frame rates on some of your past-gen Xbox games? Thanks to this whopping load of new titles that now support the Xbox FPS Boost technology, you’ll now be able to do just that (hat tip Wario64). A lot of the games here are making the leap from 30 frames-per-second to 60 FPS for the first time. For those already sitting at a solid 60, they’ll now get doubled up to 120.

Some of the notables on this list that I found? Tomb Raider is on the menu, folks. Both the original game and Shadow of the Tomb Raider are now bumped up to 60 FPS. The bummer? No Rise of the Tomb Raider for some reason. Perhaps we need to keep an eye out for that one.

Also — ReCore! I’ve been adamant that this game needed to get bumped up using FPS Boost because a) it’s an Xbox exclusive, and b) the gameplay really demands it. I’m glad Microsoft saw things my way and decided to get this game working with the new tech.

Sadly, this massive dump of new FPS Boost games is still missing some from my wish list. There’s no Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to be found at the moment, though some of the older games in the series got love. And I’m still really pulling for Outer Wilds to get support for the feature at some point. That is a game that truly deserves to be hitting 60 FPS.

Later on today, we’ll be tossing up an entire dedicated post containing all of the FPS Boost titles and how they’re supported on Xbox Series X and Series S (update: here it is). In the meantime, here are the 70+ new titles added to the list.
