Seven months after it was made available to Xbox Series X players, Call of Duty: Warzone now officially supports 120 FPS on PS5.
This bit of news was discovered within June 16’s Call of Duty: Warzone patch notes, and it reminds players that an HDMI 2.1 cord is required for your PS5 to fully take advantage of 120 FPS.
To ensure your PS5 is achieving 120 FPS on Call of Duty: Warzone, all players need to do is to go to the PS5 system settings, hit Screen and Video, select Video Output, set Enable 120Hz Output to Automatic, go back to settings and go to Saved Data and Game/App Settings, and then change Game Presets to Performance Mode.
As reported by Eurogamer, Infinity Ward added 120 FPS support for Call of Duty: Warzone on only Xbox Series X in November 2020, but it wasn’t even mentioned in that week’s patch notes. There were no comments made by either Activision or Infinity Ward on that decision, but it appears PS5 players are finally able to enjoy this higher frame rate.
Have you played Call of Duty: Warzone?
This was an interesting development as Rocket League developer Psyonix had mentioned that enabling 120 FPS on PS5 “requires a full native port,” while it is just a “minor patch” on Xbox Series X.
