All PS5 games that support 120 fps: Destiny 2, Fortnite, and more

PlayStation 5 is an incredibly powerful console, capable of running today’s most demanding games in 4K without ever skipping a beat. Whether you’re playing a PS5 exclusive like Deathloop or taking advantage of a next-gen upgrade, there’s no doubt you’ll be in for a visual feast.

Beyond ray tracing and fancy graphics, however, several games take advantage of PS5’s processing power to run at 120 fps. Not all games support the feature — in fact, the full list of supported titles is rather short — but there’s no doubt it’s one of the coolest next-gen options available on Sony’s latest console.

Running games at 120 fps is simple, although there are a few steps you’ll need to take beforehand. First, head over to the Video Output section of your PlayStation 5 settings and ensure the Enable 120Hz Output option is turned on. This will allow supported games to run at 120fps — although you might still need to change settings for individual games upon launching them. This will vary based on each game, but 120 fps settings can typically be found in the Video or Graphics section of the Main Menu.

With all your software settings properly adjusted, you’ll next want to make sure your TV supports a 120Hz refresh rate. Anything lower than this won’t be capable of handling the lightning-fast frame rates your PS5 is capable of.

Once you’ve verified that your TV supports 120Hz refresh rates and you’ve enabled 120 fps mode on your PS5, you’re ready to start gaming.

While hundreds of games are currently playable on PS5, only a handful include 120 fps support. Several publishers are working to get the feature running with their old games, while others are ensuring it’ll be available in upcoming releases.

Running at 120fps requires an immense amount of processing power, and it’s not unusual for games to lower their resolution in order to handle the additional workload. Each game handles 120 fps differently — so make sure you pay close attention to your visual settings when enabling 120 fps. You’ll often sacrifice a bit of graphical fidelity for the buttery smooth frame rate, but it’s a small price to pay for the elusive feature.

Here are the games you can run at 120 fps on PS5, although many more are on the way:

  • Borderlands 3
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Call of Duty: Warzone
  • Destiny 2
  • Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
  • Dirt 5
  • Doom Eternal
  • F1 2021
  • Fortnite
  • Ghost Runner
  • Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
  • The Night Collection
  • Quake
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Rocket League
  • Rogue Company
  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2
  • WRC 9

PlayStation 6: release date speculation, price, specs, and more
A DualSense Edge sits in front of a blue backdrop.

In a recent quote, Sony Senior Vice President Naomi Matsuoka said: "Looking ahead, PS5 will enter the latter stage of its life cycle." Many in the industry took that to mean that we may be hearing about the next PlayStation console sooner rather than later.

Considering Sony has yet to break its naming convention, it feels safe to assume whatever future home console we get will be called the PlayStation 6. But not only has the name not been officially confirmed, but neither has the idea of a next-generation PlayStation console or even a PS5 Pro. It's almost a guarantee, but technically nothing is set in stone. Rumors and potential leaks have already started stirring up excitement, so let's see what the future of PlayStation may look like according to the rumors.

PlayStation Plus has undergone several iterations and changes since its introduction. Originally, the service wasn't required for online play at all and rewarded subscribers with extra discounts and free monthly games. Once the PlayStation 4 generation began, it was required for online play, but still offered those same benefits.

Now, PS Plus is divided into three different tiers of subscriptions. The basic tier, PS Plus Essential, still gets three games per month added, while the Extra and Premium tiers will have a varying number of games added to their catalogs. With hundreds of games already and more coming and going all the time, even the most dedicated gamer won't be able to play everything on offer. To help you get the most bang for your buck and so that no hidden gems fly under your radar, here are all the best games to play on PS Plus Essential, Extra, and Premium right now.

PlayStation's upcoming exclusive Astro Bot will not receive PlayStation VR2 support, Nicolas Doucet, Team Asobi studio head, confirms to Digital Trends. Doucet says that the team is "100% TV" and notes that the addition of a VR mode down the line is unlikely.

The Astro Bot series first made a name for itself thanks to PlayStation VR. Team Asobi's Astro Bot: Rescue Mission was hailed as one of the VR platform's best games when it launched in 2018, leaving fans curious to see if the studio would develop a game for Sony's newest headset, the PlayStation VR2. In an interview with Digital Trends at Summer Game Fest, Doucet confirmed that VR isn't in the cards for its new game for logistical reasons.
