Ever since Sony launched the PlayStation 5 console back in late 2020, the world knew very well that they’d be dealing with something totally different when it comes to gaming. The console brought some neat features that helped those virtual worlds tremendously.
As it always happens in technology, there’s never enough. Our bet is that two decades from now, the world will look back at PlayStation and Xbox consoles thinking that they’re extremely obsolete compared to what will be the trend in the future. But until such a moment will or will not happen, it’s time to focus on the consoles we have today.
Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) is coming to PS5
According to the PlayStation blog itself, the Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) feature is coming to PlayStation 5 owners in just a few days. What the new technology will do is it will allow for “a dynamic display refresh rate that can continuously and seamlessly vary on the fly.”
For the next weeks, the following games will have VRR support enabled, according to the same source mentioned above:
- Astro’s Playroom
- Call of Duty: Vanguard
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- Destiny 2
- Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
- DIRT 5
- Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
- Resident Evil Village
- Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
- Tribes of Midgard
The blog post explains the basics of what you need to know if you have a PlayStation 5 console:
VRR will arrive 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’ve received the update, VRR will automatically be 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 “Screen and Video” in system settings.
