Microsoft Begins Updating Backward Compatible Xbox Games For Xbox Series
Microsoft has reportedly started to update some of the backward compatible Xbox games for Xbox Series suggesting that they might be due for an upgrade soon.
Xbox Series and Xbox One can play some of the backward compatible games at a higher resolution. Xbox Series is even capable of playing it at a higher frame rate and this not only applies to the Xbox 360 games but also Xbox One.
According to multiple reports, users of the Xbox Series have started to receive updates for the backward compatible games on their consoles.

Some of the games that have received an update on Xbox Series consoles are listed below.
- Fallout 3
- Fallout New Vegas
- Fable Anniversary
- Dead Space
- Dragon Age Origins
- Dragon Age 2
- Dead Space 3
- Fable 3
- Sonic Unleashed
- Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
Another update suggests the list of games might be longer than what was initially assumed by fans.
While this might not mean that every one of these will get FPS Boost or a resolution upgrade, it is also a possibility that Microsoft could be planning to improve their emulation or add new games to the backward compatibility lineup on the Xbox consoles.
Microsoft will host an event tomorrow on November 15 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Xbox console. One of the announcements that have been rumored for this event is the Halo Infinite Multiplayer launch, while others suggest that new backward compatible games are also due to be announced during this event.
This might not be limited to upgrades to existing games, as rumors are suggesting that new backward compatible games might be added as well. Some of the names being thrown around include the original Xbox releases of Max Payne, Red Dead Revolver, and more.
Backward compatibility begin with Microsoft releasing a curated list of games on the Xbox One allowing certain Xbox 360 titles to be playable, and they slowly started to expand it adding Xbox games as well. It was then later updated with a 4K resolution boost for some specific games and then upgraded again with the addition of FPS Boost on Xbox Series.
