Delivering on our promise
Compatible games become even more beautiful than before with an improved look and feel to their gameplay. After more than 500,000 hours were put into testing and meeting quality standards for Xbox Series X|S gameplay, titles that are backward compatible are dramatically enhanced from how they used to look and feel – while preserving the playability you expect.
Now introducing FPS Boost, an enhancement added to previously released backward compatible titles to help boost framerates to nearly double that of their original. Added to other enhancements like Auto HDR and your previously owned catalogue of games – many of which are included in your Xbox Game Pass membership – FPS Boost brings out the best in the titles you love to play.FPS BOOST TITLES
Enjoy your favourites in their best resolution yet. Backward compatible games with Xbox Series X|S take full advantage of the power of this new generation of consoles, enabling selected titles to render at increased resolutions of up to 4K.
See your favourites in a new light with richer colours and lighting from Auto HDR. High dynamic range (HDR) gives the sense of richness and depth by allowing them to render a larger range of brightness and colour. Auto HDR automatically enhances SDR games that pre-date HDR technology, enabling them to deliver brighter, more colourful worlds.

However, offline multiplayer scenarios such as co-op, party scenarios (multiple controller on one console), and system-link are supported if they were supported on the Original Xbox. With system-link (if game supports the feature), you can play with others across Original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles.
