With the release of God of War Ragnarok just a day back, players have taken to the game in huge numbers. This could have been guessed by anyone who knows the series since the predecessor did exceedingly well. The two games have more differences between them than you would think. Skill labor made it easier to level up the skill tree in GoW: Ragnarok. The gameplay gives a more fluid feel to the player. High Frame Rate Mode is another difference that we would like to point out.
What is High Frame Rate Mode in GoW: Ragnarok?
When set to High Frame Rate mode, the game may reach a maximum of 120 frames per second, allowing for fluid movement and animation of all on-screen elements.
This does not, however, “lock” the framerate at a constant 120fps. Instead, the framerate can reach as high as 120fps, though it more likely ranges from 60fps to 120fps (and even lower when things go crazy on screen).
If you’re a die-hard fan of God of War, the last thing you want to do before jumping into a game is spending time looking for a workaround for the game’s High Frame Rate Mode when playing Ragnarok. There’s a simple answer, thankfully. Learn why your High FPS Mode in God of War: Ragnarok isn’t functioning, and how to fix it, below.
Fixing Ragnarok’s High Frame Rate Mode in God of War Ragnarok
If High Frame Rate Mode in God of War: Ragnarok isn’t working, follow these steps:
- Connect your PS5 to a 4K TV through an HDMI 2.1 port.
- You may hook up your PS5 to your TV using an HDMI 2.1 cable.
- Access the “Enable 120 Hz Output” setting in the PS5’s System Settings.
- Choose “Settings” > “Screen and Video” > “Video Output” To use the maximum frame rate of 120 hertz, enable it by clicking the “Enable 120 Hz Output” button and then select “Automatic.”
- In addition, VRR must be activated in the PS5’s System Settings.
- Access the Video Output tab from the Screen and Video tab within the Settings menu. Select VRR and then set it to “Automatic.”
- Enable High Frame Rate Mode and then restart God of War: Ragnarok.
- God of War Ragnarok is playable in 1440p with an unlocked frame rate of 120 fps or less.
- If you don’t have a TV or cable that supports the game’s recommended resolution of 1440p-2160p at 60 FPS, you can still play God of War Ragnarok by switching to the “Favor Performance” graphics setting.
