Overwatch update introduces 120 FPS option on Xbox Series X/S
A new update has been released for Overwatch that optimizes the game for Xbox Series X/S with support for 120 FPS gameplay.
Following the update, players on Xbox Series X/S will discover a new “Preferred Mode” option in the game’s settings that allows them to switch between “Resolution”, “Balanced”, or “Framerate” modes.
“Resolution” focuses on a higher resolution and runs the game at 4K/60 FPS on Series X and 1440p/60 FPS on Series S, while “Balanced” puts the focus on image quality and runs at 1440p/60 FPS on Series X and 1080p/60 FPS on Series S. The third and final option, “Framerate”, offers 120 FPS gameplay at the cost of image quality and resolution with 1440p/120 FPS on Series X and 1080p/120 FPS on Series S.
At the moment, there’s been no word of PlayStation 5 getting a similar upgrade.
This update also adds a Damage FX option to the Advanced Video options menu on PC, makes changes to how important off-screen elements are displayed on screen, and introduces Workshop Extensions, which offers access to new effects. Read the full patch notes here.
