For those curious how Blizzard Entertainment is taking advantage of the next-gen consoles’ power for Overwatch 2, players will be able to play the game on 120fps (frames-per-second), alongside other features that aren’t present on last-gen consoles.

Aside from Overwatch 2 being able to run at 120fps, players will also be able to choose different performance modes on the next-gen version of the game, and it’ll even support (on a system level) VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) too.

We checked whether Overwatch 2 was able to run at 120fps after Reddit user packersfan1290 posted it.on the game’s subreddit. Well, true enough, here’s what our captured image shows:


As for the different peformance modes, players will be able to choose between “Resolution,” “Framerate” and “Balanced.” as shown in the featured image above. Again, this is only for next-gen consoles, as last-gen won’t have this feature in the options menu (we checked).
