A new Sonic Frontiers patch has been published, which allows players to select Performance Mode on Xbox Series S.
For some reason, those who play in Series S couldn’t play the game in performance mode. Granted, there was a way to force a higher frame rate on Microsoft’s next-gen console, but by default, this option wasn’t available in the game’s settings. This new patch fixes that, allowing players to prioritize frame rate on Xbox Series S as well.
Additionally, this new update addresses an issue with the Kronos Island Titan boss and fixes an issue with Chaos Island icons. We have included release notes, as released By the official Sonic Twitter account, down below:
Sonic Frontiers Patch 11/29 Release Notes

- Fixed an issue where the Kronos Island Titan boss would disappear after retrying a fight.
- Fixes an issue where a Chaos Island symbol would appear locked even after completion.
Sonic Frontiers is now available globally for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Nintendo Switch. Here’s what we said about Sonic’s latest adventure in our own review of the game at launch:
One surprisingly good element of the Sonic Frontiers open world experience is the combat. This time, Sonic can use a variety of different combat skills unlocked via the Skill Tree that gives players different options that feel good to use. Most of these skills can also be used in a smooth combo, which is unprecedented in the game Sonic the Hedgehog. The skill tree itself seems a bit superfluous, considering how easy it is to get skill points, but the options it gives are great and very useful in different situations. Combat also feels great thanks to the well-designed enemy, whose unique abilities force players to put to good use the many moves in Sonic’s arsenal. One skill I see returning in future entries in the series is the Cyloop, which has many different uses both in combat and while exploring the open world. Another key feature of the Sonic Frontiers combat experience is the boss battles, which combine the game’s new combat mechanics with others inspired by Shadow of the Colossus. The results were amazing, setting a new benchmark for a series known for having some great boss fights.
