PS 5 VRR update adds support for Call of Duty, Deathloop and more

Variable refresh rate (VRR) support is coming to PlayStation 5 via an operating system update this week, and it’s rolling out soon to new games like Deathloop, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and Call of Duty: Vanguard. Announced in March, VRR support synchronizes the PS5’s graphics output with the refresh rate of a compatible TV. The result is images that look sharper, with fewer artifacts or noticeable performance loss.

Sony Interactive Entertainment says a console update that usually ships on Tuesdays will support VRR this week, Sony Interactive Entertainment said Monday on the PlayStation Blog. The games will then be patched to support the feature. The following games will be updated “in the coming weeks” to support variable refresh rates, Sony said:

  • Astro’s Playroom
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • Fate 2
  • Devil May Cry 5 Special version
  • DIRT 5
  • God come down
  • Marvel‘S Spiderman Fixed
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
  • Tom clancy’s Rainbow Six Surround
  • Tribe by Midgard

In addition, Arkane Studios say on monday that DeathloopPlayStation exclusive that launched in September now supports VRR.

VRR requires both PS5 and HDMI 2.1 VRR compatible TV (or PC monitor). After updating the PS5 system, players can find the option in the Display and Video tab of the system settings menu. Players can also apply VRR to PS5 games that don’t officially support it. It may improve video quality, but if not, the feature can be disabled from the settings menu (via the toggle marked “Applies to unsupported games”).

Games that launched on PlayStation 5 could get VRR support with a patch, and future games could support VRR at launch, Sony said.

A popular game that is not yet listed on the PS5 VRR support page is Elden Ring; in March, Digital Foundry noted that both the PS5 and Xbox Series X struggled to maintain 60fps performance in games – and recommended that Xbox Series X users take advantage of VRR support across the board. that control “to reduce performance.” PS 5 VRR update adds support for Call of Duty, Deathloop and more
