Far Cry 5: How to Enable FPS Boost on Xbox (60 FPS) | Screen Rant

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S both have the ability to run Far Cry 5 at 60 FPS, but it may need to be enabled first depending on which console players are using. The ability to increase the frame rate for this game is due to the FPS Boost function on the Series X and Series S, and enabling it will enhance the visual quality of the game. FPS Boost is also available for other select titles, including several Far CryFallout, and Assassin’s Creed games.

Increasing the frame rate for any game will make it run smoother and enhance the immersive experience. When frame rates drop or are put on a lower setting, it can lead to slow and choppy gameplay. It’s always recommended that players choose the highest available frame rate to avoid performance issues. The only downside to enabling the FPS Boost is that the resolution goes from 4K to 1080p.

Typically, Far Cry 5 runs at 30 FPS on Xbox consoles, but the frame rate is doubled when the boost is turned on. Any player on Xbox Series S won’t have to do anything to activate the FPS Boost because Far Cry 5‘s 4K, 30 FPS mode isn’t supported on that console. However, the default setting for Xbox Series X is the 4K, 30 FPS mode. Luckily, for those playing on Xbox Series X, it only takes a few easy steps to turn on the FPS Boost for a better experience in Far Cry 5.

Players that have Xbox Game Pass can download Far Cry 5 for free and start experiencing the FPS Boost right away. An Xbox Game Pass subscription for consoles only costs $9.99 per month. Alternatively, players can subscribe to Ultimate Game Pass for $14.99 per month to access games on console and PC. Ultimate members will also get EA Play and Xbox Gold, as well as have access to many Xbox Game Pass backward compatible games. When signing up, players may receive an offer to pay $1 for the first month, but after that, the subscription’s full price will be charged monthly until it’s canceled.

Players should be aware that if they cancel their Game Pass subscription, they will have to buy the Far Cry 5 to continue playing. Those that don’t want to purchase a subscription can simply buy the game. This Far Cry title is on sale in the Xbox Store for $14.99, but it will be full price again after July 4, 2022. The regular price for this title is $59.99, so players should take advantage of the sale while it’s available. While it will cause a dip in resolution, Far Cry 5 will run a lot smoother and with fewer performance issues when the FPS Boost is enabled.
