Today, we’re excited to announce that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support will begin rolling out globally to PS5 players this week. On TVs and PC monitors that support HDMI 2.1 VRR, VRR dynamically synchronizes the screen’s refresh rate with the PS5 console’s graphical output. This improves the visual performance of PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts such as frame rate issues and screen tearing. Gameplay in many PS5 titles feels smoother as cutscenes play smoothly, graphics look sharper, and input lag is reduced. * Previously released PS5 games may be fully optimized for VRR via 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 will enable VRR support:
- astro game room
- Call of Duty: Vanguard
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- deadly loop
- fate 2
- Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
- DIRT 5
- fallen god
- 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 Tribes
These are just a few of the PS5 titles receiving VRR support and we’d like to thank their talented development teams. Please keep an eye on their channels for updates as you will have the best experience with VRR once their game patches are available.
VRR is coming globally via a PS5 console update in the coming days (make sure you’re 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-enabled TV or PC monitor. You can also disable it in “Display & 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 can improve video quality for some games. If this produces unexpected visual effects, you can disable this option at any time. Please note that 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).

We always listen to your feedback and are excited to bring you new fan-requested features. Let us know what you think in the comments!
Update: Arkane Studios has also announced that VRR support for Deathloop will be implemented this week. It has been added to the previous list.
