Starting today, FPS Boost is also being made available to 33 titles via Xbox Cloud Gaming that were previously enhanced on Xbox Series X/S including Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and The Evil Within 2.

The new backward compatibility games were announced during a 20th anniversary Xbox live stream on Monday.

During the event, Microsoft also confirmed that Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer mode will be released today via a beta.

And it revealed a new six-part documentary series about the history of Xbox, which will be released in mid-December.
