All PS5 and Xbox Series games with 120 fps

All PS5 and Xbox Series games with 120 fps

The jump from PS4 and Xbox One to PS5 and Xbox Series X | S goes through the absence of load times, SSD memories, and, of course, the promised games with 120 FPS. 

When Sony and Microsoft spoke to us of their goals for the next generation, increasing fluidity in games was one of the key points that this new hardware for consoles would fulfill. Have they kept their promise?

The answer is yes and no. While it is true that we are at the beginning of the next-gen, the new games and other improved titles of PS4 and Xbox One offer us two options: the performance mode and the resolution mode. 

Some deliver on the promise of 120 FPS in both game modes, but others lower this premise to 60 FPS to accommodate 4K resolution. 

It must be said that Microsoft has leaped 120 FPS faster than Sony, something that has become clear with the recent statements of Psyonix, creators of Rocket League, who admit that in Xbox Series only one patch is necessary to achieve the 120 FPS, while on PS5 you need to develop a native port to achieve this rate of frames per second. 

In this report, we name you which are the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S games that reach 120 FPS, either in both operating modes or in performance mode. 

Find out which titles are best suited to next-gen consoles.

Games with 120 FPS on PS5

PS5 has a game catalog that alternates between 60 FPS and 120 FPS, depending on how developers have adapted their titles to the new Sony console. 

The same goes for resolution, certain games manage to run at 4K, while others run at 1080p.

Another important point to note is that both PS5 models are technically the same, except for whether they have a disc player or not. This implies that to enjoy the improvements in resolution and frame rate per second it is advisable to have a 4K TV or a monitor compatible with that resolution to enjoy the next-gen in all its splendor. 

At the moment, eight PS5 games run at 120 FPS, although Sony promises that the list will continue to expand over the months. We remind you that some only achieve this figure if they are run in performance mode. 

Games with 120 FPS on Xbox Series X | S

The next-gen Xbox has come with two consoles underarm: Xbox Series X and Series S Xbox. If we get to talking about 4K resolution, only Xbox Series X complies with this feature, since Series S rescales games to 4K, but not natively. This is something that Microsoft already reported when it announced its ‘low cost’ console focused on the game at 1440p. 

This is very important since Xbox Series S does comply with the premise of 120 FPS, understanding fluency as more important than resolution. In the case of its older sister, Xbox Series X, it works under the same goals as PS5: fluidity and power. Therefore, if you do not have a 4K TV or monitor that resolution, we recommend that you do with Xbox Series S. 

Currently, there are a total of 24 Xbox Series X | S games that comply with 120 FPS, some of them already available on the market and others on the horizon, as was the case with PS5. We name you which games are compatible with this rate of frames per second.

  • Halo Infinite
  • Halo The Master Chief Collection
  • King oddball
  • Metal: Hellsinger
  • Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  • Orphan of the Machine
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Rocket league
  • Rogue company
  • Star wars squadrons
  • Second Extinction
  • The Falconeer
  • The Touryst

As we have said before, some of these PS5 and Xbox Series X | S games do not run at 120 FPS in all their running modes

A clear example is Borderlands 3, which achieves that rate of frames per second in its performance mode but running at 1080p resolution.

And we emphasize that this list of PS5 and Xbox Series X | S will be expanding over the months, according to Sony and Microsoft

Another example is Star Wars Squadrons, which in the next-gen PlayStation console has no improvements over the PS4 version, or the aforementioned Rocket League, for now. 

Let us know what do you think of these games? Are you looking forward to one more joining the 120 FPS list? Surely in the next year 2021, we will see how this selection of titles for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S expands enormously.
