After confirming that it was coming soon, PlayStation has now announced that the PS5 is getting VRR support this week. A brand new PS5 system update will arrive this week allowing HDMI 2.1 VRR compatible TVs and monitors to support VRR between your PS5 and display. VRR syncs the refresh rate of your display to the PS5 output so that you don’t get screen tearing and other display issues.
In the coming weeks, updates for the below PS5 games will arrive enabling VRR support:
Call of Duty: Vanguard
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
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
As PlayStation had already announced, you can turn VRR on in the Screen and Video settings. You can also turn on VRR for games that don’t support it. The blog post says that this will improve video quality for some games, but you’re also able to turn this off if any weirdness occurs.
Obviously, as games release throughout the year, we should see more and more games launch with VRR support, as we have been on both Xbox Series X as well as PC.
