Dark Souls 3

FromSoftware’s Dark Souls 3 is the latest title to benefit from FPS Boost on Xbox Series X/S, enabling it to run at 60 frames per second on the console. This now puts the Xbox version in the same league as the PS5 version, the latter supporting 60 FPS since both consoles launched last November.

According to Jason Ronald, partner director of program management for the Xbox team, implementing FPS Boost “required a brand new technique, unique to Dark Souls 3, to enable 60 FPS on Xbox Series X|S.” He then thanked FromSoftware and Bandai Namco for their support. Unfortunately, the resolution still appears to be 900p like the Xbox One version.

Dark Souls 3 released in March 2016 for PS4, PC and Xbox One, and received critical acclaim for its combat, visuals, and overall world design. It’s sold over 10 million units as of May 2020 with the series as a whole selling 27 million thus far. FromSoftware is currently working on Elden Ring, whose gameplay has been described as being heavily based on the Souls series. It’s slated to release on January 21st 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and PC.
