Dark Souls III has just received a much-needed FPS boost on Xbox.

Dark Souls III FPS Boost on Xbox

From Software classic now targets 60 frames per second on the new wave of Microsoft consoles, replacing the very iffy 30 FPS in the Xbox One rendition of the game. 

This was a much-requested upgrade for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S owners; it brings the game closer into the line of performance of a PlayStation 5. 

Dark Souls 3 released on last-gen systems back in 2016, with a rigorous 30 FPS cap. Months later, a PlayStation 4 Pro patch released, removing this limit, and bumping up the FPS to 60. This value of the upgrade was thought to be careless at the time as this limit increase was solely due to a new console, technically a new version of an already console’s release. It still worked out as the PlayStation’s 5 backward compatibility locks the game to a 1080p resolution and a 60 FPS.

From Software never went back to work on the Xbox One version of Dark Souls 3 to add Xbox One X support. This meant that 900p quality and 30 FPS has been the limit since the game’s original launch. But this new FPS boost has rectified that.
