PS5 and Xbox Series X games with 120fps support are becoming increasingly common. Whether you're after a blockbuster hit or inventive platformer, more titles are taking advantage of 120fps support, which is fantastic news for players with compatible displays.

We’ve previously been stuck in the doldrums of running games at a treacle-like 30fps on console. But with higher framerates now becoming more readily available, that's no longer the case. Gamers can enjoy the benefits of reduced input latency, a smoother image, and significantly more responsive gameplay.

120fps support used to be exclusively reserved for PC gamers with powerful enough hardware. However, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S owners with a 120Hz, HDMI 2.1 compatible display can hit the lofty heights of 4K and 120fps. Those who have 120Hz, HDMI 2.0 displays can also take advantage of 120fps, but only at 1080p (and sometimes 1440p).

So which PS5 and Xbox Series X games offer 120fps support? And does the Xbox Series S also benefit? We’ve rounded up all the games below in an easy-to-read format so you can see which games take advantage of higher framerates on either system. We’ll also be updating this list in the future as more games receive 120fps support. 

If you'd like to play games at a blistering 120fps, here's how to enable 120Hz on PS5 and how to enable 120Hz on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

PS5 and Xbox Series X|S 120fps: why is 120fps better than 60fps?

Does having a higher framerate really matter? Put simply, yes, but right now it’s a luxury for many. 120fps support is a huge plus in competitive games, where a split-second action can make all the difference. Running games at a higher framerate makes games look incredibly smooth in motion, helping to offset motion sickness and make games generally look cleaner. 

But it’s also a graphically intensive feature, hence why it isn’t supported by every game out there. It simply wasn’t possible on the last-gen consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One

While it’s always hard to showcase the benefits of 120fps fully without experiencing it for yourself, the video below shows Ori and the Will of the Wisps running at 60fps and 120fps. The difference between the two is stark, even though 60fps is still considered to be the sweet spot for framerates. Ori appears as though it’s more stop-start at 60fps, while at 120fps it’s noticeably more fluid in motion

120Hz vs 120fps: what’s the difference?

It’s easy to get the two confused, but it’s important to know the difference between them. Hertz (Hz) refers to the number of times your display refreshes per second. Most TVs are limited to 60Hz, but you may have seen some monitors that support 144Hz and even 360Hz. If your TV only has a 60Hz refresh rate, you won’t be able to play at 120fps, the maximum refreshes per second it can achieve is 60. For 120fps, you’d need a 120Hz capable display.

Frames per second (fps) is the number of individual images generated by a console or a PC. Developers often lock framerate to a set figure: either 30, 60 or 120, to provide a steady and consistent experience. If you’ve ever played an unlocked 30fps game, it’s often extremely unpleasant, as the game wildly fluctuate between different framerate values. That leads to a choppy, inconsistent experience. 

The main takeaway is this: if a display is capable of 120Hz, then it can run games at 120fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, providing it has a HDMI 2.0 or HDMI 2.1 port. Again, a HDMI 2.1 or 2.0 connection will affect what resolutions you are able to run at when hitting 120fps.

While the PS5 doesn’t include 120fps support for quite as many games as Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, its library of titles is growing slowly. Check out all the PS5 games with 120fps support below.
