The crazy folks over at Insomniac Games have already pushed out PS5 VRR support patches for their games, just hours after Sony announced that VRR support will begin rolling out this week and provided a list of games that’ll be updated in “coming weeks.” In true Insomniac fashion, the studio didn’t want to sit around and wait, and pushed out patches for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
Insomniac’s PS5 VRR patches also come with 120 Hz support
In a post on its website, Insomniac said that its games are already built with stable frame rates so the main feature of the VRR patch is a slight increase in dynamic image resolution targets. Players who have TV sets or displays that support 120 Hz and enable the option along with VRR will get variable, uncapped frame rate that can exceed their chosen Graphic Mode’s frame rate (30 fps or 60 fps) by 50 percent or more, depending on gameplay. It goes without saying that you’ll need HDMI 2.1 as well as a display that supports VRR and 120 Hz to fully enjoy what the patches have to offer.
