A long requested game is finally recieving the FPS Boost treatment in a bit of a surprise announcement. Dark Souls 3 is the latest game to recieve the enhancement and it sounds like it required a unique method.
Director of Program Management Jason Ronald noted that this game required a “brand new technique” and that From Software and Bandai Namco were willing to give a helping hand to make this upgrade possible.
We heard you! The team is thrilled to bring FPS Boost to Dark Souls 3. This required a brand new technique, unique to Dark Souls 3, to enable 60 FPS on Xbox Series X|S.— Jason Ronald (@jronald) July 8, 2021
Huge thank you to our partners at FROM Software and Bandai Namco for their partnership and support. https://t.co/uI9J8Hv8hK
While this update is appreciated, the game unfortunately still runs at 900p which means the game may look a bit blurry. Hopefully that is something either the developers or Xbox can address soon.
