All Xbox Series X and Series S games with support for 120fps gameplay

One of the biggest attractions of Microsoft’s new consoles is the ability to finally have fast gameplay at 120 frames per second at up to 4K resolution. The Xbox Series X and Series S also got an update back in February where the FPS Boost feature was introduced, which additionally enabled older-gen Xbox games to run at comparatively faster frame rates going up to 120fps.

But what exactly is the benefit of having 120fps gameplay? Older Xbox consoles were restricted to 30 or 60fps with some exceptions on the last-gen Xbox One X. The new Xbox Series X and Series S pack powerful hardware that’s capable of delivering high frame rates going up to 4K resolution on certain supported games. Having a higher refresh rate ensures a smoother experience with faster response times, which is absolutely essential for competitive games. At the same time, it requires a lot of power to deliver double the amount of frame rates when compared to 60fps. Much like the higher refresh rate on smartphones, you need to experience games at a higher fps to appreciate the hype behind them.


You also need to understand the difference between 120fps and 120Hz. It’s easy to get confused between the two but simply put, hertz (Hz) refers to the number of times your display refreshes per second, while frames per second (fps) refers to the number of image frames generated by the console. Unlike gaming monitors that are available for anything from 144Hz to 360Hz, TVs are mostly limited to 60Hz. To experience the full potential of 120fps on the Xbox Series X or Series S, you need to make sure your TV or monitor offers at least a 120Hz refresh rate. Depending on the display resolution, you also need to make sure your TV or monitor has an HDMI 2.0 or the newer HDMI 2.1 port which is necessary for 4K 120Hz gameplay.

Now we’ve clarified all that, let’s take a look at all of the games for the Xbox Series X and Series S capable of running at 120 frames per second.

It’s expected that more games will be added to the list especially with FPS Boost now available to all game developers. During the rollout of the feature, Microsoft said they worked closely with developers to enhance the experience while maintaining the game’s original intent. As of now, only a handful of older games have taken a jump from 30fps to 60fps, but we are expecting games to go up to 120fps later this year. Make sure you keep an eye on this list as we’ll be updating it periodically, and also check out our list of the best Xbox games.

If you haven’t been able to get your hands on either of the new consoles, make sure you check out our restocks guide. Also, we checked out the smaller Xbox Series S late last year and found it pretty interesting, especially if you’re looking for new gaming hardware at a cheap price point.
