Rocket League on PS5 Now Has 120 FPS Support!

by in Rocket League | Aug, 19th 2021

If you’re super into Rocket League and happen to play the game on a PS5, you’ll be happy to know that your favorite vehicular soccer game now officially supports 120 FPS on Sony’s latest and greatest console! To fully harness this update, you’ll have to own a 120Hz display (or one that is even faster). Fortunately, you can get one for cheap these days as they’ve (finally) become mainstream.

Gamers will now be able to select between two separate modes: Quality and Performance. The former will render the game at 4K/60 FPS with HDR (you’ll need to have an HDR10 compatible display and an HDMI 2.0 cable for this one). If you happen to own a 1080p display, the game will render at that same resolution but it’ll be supersampled from 4K.

If, however, you opt for the Performance mode, the game will render at 2688×1512 (70% of full 4K) at 120 FPS with HDR. All in-game UI elements will also render in 4K so as to deliver the most visually pleasing (and consistent) experience. You’ll need an HDR and 120 FPS compatible display, along with an Ultra High Speed HDMI 2.1 cable.

A World of Difference

120 FPS support is a huge boon for nearly all fast-paced titles, regardless if they’re racing simulations, first-person shooters, or something else entirely. You want to have as big of an advantage as possible, and a higher frame rate (and refresh rate screen) will go a long way towards allowing you to play at your best.

Controls will feel more responsive (which, in fact, they will be) and you’ll find it easier to pull off those crazy plays and react in time to what’s happening on the field. It’s really a night and day difference and is definitely worth the asking price.

In any case, we’re glad to see 120 FPS support for Rocket League on PS5; it might not be the most mind-blowing addition imaginable, but it’s a wholly practical one and is no doubt a step in the right direction.
