Twenty Bethesda Softworks games will be part of the Xbox Game Pass library starting Friday, March 12, now that Microsoft’s $7.5 billion acquisition of the Fallout and Elder Scrolls publisher is complete. Several of the the games are returning to the subscription, others are making their Game Pass debut, and some were already in the catalog.

Thursday’s announcement from Microsoft and Bethesda also mentioned that “a handful of these games will also benefit from FPS Boost on Xbox Series X|S.” FPS Boost provides a frame rate increase for certain backward-compatible Xbox One titles when played on Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, doubling or quadrupling the games’ original frame rates. Microsoft said it will share more details on titles that support FPS Boost at a later time.
