As promised in a February release on Xbox Wire, Xbox’s March update adds ways to make some backward compatible titles even better on your Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. This month, those with backward compatible titles in their Xbox Libraries will start to notice new options. compatibility for these games.
Once in the “Compatibility Options” menu for a chosen game, players can switch between options like Auto HDR and FPS Boost. Auto HDR, a feature already existing on Xbox, enables high dynamic range visuals on games that only exist in the standard range. Gamers can also activate the new FPS Boost option, which can double – or even quadruple – the frame rate of some games. Xbox warns that the frame rate increase could come at the expense of the game’s display resolution. The original game bundle announced alongside the FPS increase included Watch Dogs 2, Far Cry 4, Sniper Elite 4, New Super Lucky’s Tale, and EA Sports UFC 4, but more may have been added in the meantime, and Xbox has said more will definitely be added in the future.
Last month Microsoft announced the new Xbox wireless headset, a premium premium headset with a fairly reasonable price tag of $ 100. The headset comes with a bunch of cool features, but one of the main benefits of being created by the same team that built the Xbox Series X / S is that it can use the same Xbox Accessories app as other devices in the world. first part like the Xbox Elite Wireless. The series 2 controller uses.
To coincide with the headset launch on March 16, this app is receiving an update on Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 to let you configure audio settings for the Xbox Wireless Headset. Once in the app, you can adjust your experience with the headphones, including EQ settings, bass boost, auto mute sensitivity, mic monitoring, and light brightness. mute the microphone. You will also be able to keep your headphones up to date wirelessly through the app.
In addition to these Xbox additions, March sees successes returning to the Xbox app on mobile devices, a better subscription management screen (a godsend given how much the platform has become focused on subscriptions like Game Pass), and an improved game management screen that makes it easier for you to choose what you want to install from each game. Finally, Xbox has officially announced the disappearance of TV listings in OneGuide. If you’re one of the few who still use the Xbox One’s HDMI relay, you can still use OneGuide for that device, but you won’t be able to access the TV listings on the screen.
