Good news, the arrival of Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) is forthcoming – will be rolling out via an update this week. At first it will only be compatible for about ten games, listed belowand only for TVs compatible with HDMI 2.1 and VRR. For those concerned, the graphics experience should therefore be optimized.

Today we’re excited to announce that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support on PS5 will be available globally this week. On HDMI 2.1 and VRR compatible monitors and TVs, this option dynamically synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the video output of the PS5 console. The visual performance of PS5 games will therefore be increased by reducing or eliminating visual artifacts, such as frame rate issues or screen tearing. Many PS5 games will run smoother, with smoother scene rendering, sharper graphics, and reduced input latency *. Previously released PS5 games will be able to be fully optimized for variable refresh rate with the help of a patch. Future games may offer this support upon release.

In the coming weeks, the PS5 versions of these titles will feature a hotfix that offers VRR support:

  • Astro’s playroom ;
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard ;
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ;
  • Destiny 2 ;
  • Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition ;
  • DIRTY 5 ;
  • Godfall ;
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man remastered ;
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales ;
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart ;
  • Resident Evil Village ;
  • Tiny Tina’s Wonderland ;
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege ;
  • Midgard tribe.

This is just a taste of the PS5 games that will include VRR support and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank their talented development teams. Follow their news to never miss any updates and enjoy VRR as soon as patches are released.

To start
In the coming days, VRR will be made available worldwide via a PS5 console update (make sure you are connected to the internet to receive this update). Once the update is received, VRR will automatically be enabled for compatible games if your console is connected to a VRR compatible TV or display with an HDMI 2.1 port. You can also disable this option in the system settings, under “Display and Video”.

Additionally, you can choose to apply the variable refresh rate to PS5 games that don’t support it. This feature can improve the video quality of some games. If you are experiencing display problems, you can disable this option at any time. Note: Results may vary depending on the TV, the game you are playing, and the visual mode set (for games that support multiple modes). For more information on setting up the VRR, visit this page.

For the exact date of the update, you will have to go back, but of course we will keep you informed of its availability. Until then, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is available from € 50,39 on
