Overwatch got improvements for Xbox Series X | S, but not PlayStation 5

Blizzard released a new update for Overwatch this week and with this the developer has also made special improvements for the next generation. What is striking, however, is that these improvements – at least for now – are only available to those who play Overwatch on Xbox Series X | S. When playing the game on PlayStation 5, you will not be able to enjoy the next generation improvements.

On next-generation Xbox consoles, Overwatch players can now choose from three graphics modes, with varying resolutions and frame rates. For example, you can play the game on Xbox Series X at 4K / 60FPS, but also at 120FPS.

  • Resolution: This mode prefers HD output at the expense of some picture quality (X-series: 4K @ 60Hz, S-series: 1440p @ 60Hz)
  • Balanced: This mode prefers picture quality at the expense of resolution (X series: 1440p at 60Hz, S series: 1080p at 60Hz)
  • Frame Rate: This mode prefers a higher frame rate of 120 fps at the expense of image quality and resolution (X Series: 1440p @ 120Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 120Hz)
