Variable refresh rate support for PS5 launches this week

Today, we are pleased to announce that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support will begin rolling out globally to PS5 players this week. On HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TVs and PC monitors, the VRR dynamically synchronizes the screen refresh rate with the PS5 console’s graphical output. This enhances the visual performance of PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts, such as frame pacing and screen tearing issues. The gameplay in many PS5 titles feels smoother as scenes are rendered smoothly, graphics look sharper, and input delay is reduced. * Previously released PS5 games can be fully optimized for VRR through a game patch, and future games may include VRR support at launch .

In the coming weeks, the PS5 versions of these titles will receive game patches that enable VRR support:

  • Astro’s Legerum
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • Deathloop
  • Fate 2
  • Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
  • SMUT 5
  • Gudfald
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man remastered
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Little Tina’s Wonderland
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Middle-earth tribes

These are just a few of the PS5 titles that receive VRR support and we would like to thank their talented development teams. Keep an eye on their channels for updates as you get the best experience with VRR when their game patches are live.

Get started

VRR is coming globally through a PS5 console update over the next few days (make sure you are connected to the internet to receive the update). Once you receive the update, VRR will be automatically enabled for supported games if your PS5 console is connected to an HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TV or PC monitor. You can also turn it off under “Display and Video” in system settings.

As an added option, you can also choose to use VRR for PS5 games that do not support it. This feature may improve the video quality for some games. If this results in unexpected visual effects, you can disable this option at any time. Please note that the results may vary depending on the TV you are using, the game you are playing, and the visual mode you have selected for a particular game (if it supports multiple modes).

Update: Arkane Studios has also announced that VRR support for Deathloop will roll out this week. It has been added to the list above.
