    Variable Refresh Rate support comes to PS5 by end of April 2022

    Sony announced that Variable Refresh Rate support comes to PS5 by the end of April 2022! A PS5 firmware update arrives this week with VRR support across HDMI 2.1 compatible TVs and PC monitors. PS5 games will add native VRR support over the coming weeks. Read up on more details below:

    Today, we’re excited to announce that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support will start rolling out globally to PS5 players this week. On HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TVs and PC monitors, VRR dynamically syncs the refresh rate of the display to the PS5 console’s graphical output. This enhances visual performance for PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts, such as frame pacing issues and screen tearing. Gameplay in many PS5 titles feels smoother as scenes render seamlessly, graphics look crisper, and input lag 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 enabling VRR support:

    • Astro’s Playroom

    • Call of Duty: Vanguard

    • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

    • Destiny 2

    • Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition

    • DIRT 5

    • Godfall

    • 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

    These are just a few of the PS5 titles receiving VRR support and we’d like to thank their talented development teams. Please stay tuned to their channels for updates as you’ll have the best experience with VRR once their game patches are live.

    Getting Started

    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.

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