sound borders is finally here as the blue blur speeds up on TV screens around the world, but the excitement has been tempered slightly for Xbox Series S gamers who are disappointed with the game’s performance. Ahead of launch, Xbox owners Series S had guarantees that Sonic Frontiers would run at 60fps, although they discovered at launch that the game ran at 30fps with no performance mode options to be seen.
This issue has affected quite a number of Series S owners, who have voiced their complaints on social media sites such as Twitter and Reddit. Most of them say the same thing – that they are disappointed that the game is running at 30fps and they haven’t found a performance mode. Luckily, there is a solution, and it might just be a matter of going to your Xbox Series S settings and changing a few things.
TheGamer contacted Sega for a comment regarding Sonic Frontiers performance issues on the Series S, and he explained that gamers can access their console settings to improve game quality. If your TV allows for 4K UHD display, that may be the reason why Sonic Frontier runs at 30 frames per second. All you have to do is go to your settings and find the TV and display options, find the 1080p option and turn it on. Sega says this should allow Sonic Frontiers to hit 60 frames per second on S-series consoles.
It’s not the most elegant solution, but it should get you up to speed nicely in one of Sonic’s best entries in years. That’s what our own Rhiannon Bevan thinks anyway, who described Sonic Frontiers as a “celebration of the heart and soul of Sonic” in her review, though she still clings to “a few old habits. “.
