Several Bethesda Games Will Get 60 FPS Patch on Xbox Series X|S

Microsoft has announced the release of an update for TES V: Skyrim, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Prey and Dishonored: Definitive Edition that will enable gaming at 60 fps on Xbox Series X|S.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Microsoft announced an update for several Bethesda games that will enable us to play in 60 fps on Xbox Series X|S;
  2. Unfortunately, no date was given for the release.

Fallout 4, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 76, Prey and Dishonored: Definitive Edition will be updated on Xbox Series X|S and thanks to the power of Microsoft's latest console, their performance will be bumped up to 60 fps.

The information was confirmed by Microsoft's Larry Hryb during the latest episode of the official Xbox podcast (available below, the part about the upgrades starts around 14:45 mark). Unfortunately, no release date for the patches was revealed.

Doubling the frame rate in these games will be optional, and if anyone prefers 30 fps for any reason, they will be given the option to enable fps cap in the system menu. It's worth noting that Xbox Series X|S will need to be updated to the latest software version.

We also don't know if any more patches are planned in the near future that will allow games from Bethesda's library to take advantage of the extra power of Xbox Series X|S. We can expect that Microsoft will be looking to get as much as possible from the deal it made not long ago.

This is, of course, following the acquisition of ZeniMax Media by Microsoft, which was officially confirmed after the relevant authorities in Europe and the US raised no objections. We'd also like to remind that more Bethesda games have been added to GamePass, and most (if not all) upcoming titles will be exclusive to Xbox and PC.
