What has changed for Warzone with the next-gen consoles? 120 FPS for Xbox Series X is a big step, but what about the PS5?

Xbox Series X and PS5 wind have been on the market for a week and many older games are getting a next-gen upgrade. Call of Duty: Warzone got a secret upgrade, at least on the Xbox.

Without much announcement Warzone apparently got a next-gen upgrade with the last big update, patch 1.29. This means that you can play Warzone right with the launch of the new consoles. Although there is not a single reference in the official patch notes, especially on the Xbox Series X the game now runs much smoother with up to 120 FPS.

Warzone with 120 FPS on Xbox Series X

The popular Battle Royale shooter Warzone already runs on all next-gen consoles and especially on the Xbox Series X the update brought a significant improvement. As many players have probably already noticed, Warzone and Modern Warfare on the Xbox Series X now also run in 4K resolution and with up to 120 FPS. In the test, it turned out that the FPS on the Xbox Series X varies between 100 and 120 FPS, which is a big improvement compared to the 60 FPS of the old generation.

What About the PS5?

Surprisingly it turned out on the PS5 that both games still only run on 60 FPS. Even if you switch from quality mode to performance mode, you can't get beyond 60 FPS. One reason for this could be that Warzone on the PS5 is currently still running as a PS4 game via the backward compatibility feature. So far there is no official statement if and when the 120 FPS will be available on the PS5, but we would be very surprised if Warzone doesn't get the upgrade on the PlayStation with the integration of Black Ops Cold War on December 10.
