Overwatch received a new patch from Blizzard which does optimize the game for Xbox Series X|S with support for 120fps.
The latest March 9th update for Blizzard’s hero shooter contains enhancements for both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, including the new 120fps option and the graphic modes. The new “Framerate” mode of the Xbox Series X allows for framerates at 120fps in 1440p resolution. 120fps is also supported on the Xbox Series S at a lower resolution of 1080p.
Below, here is included the relevant release notes for Overwatch on Xbox Series X|S:
Optimized for Xbox Series X|S Enhancements
- Added “Preferred Mode” graphics option, which allows switching between three different presets: “Resolution,” “Balanced,” “Framerate.” These modes adjust video settings to bias towards image quality, resolution, and framerate.
- “Resolution” : This mode prefers higher-resolution output at the cost of some image-quality (Series X: 4K @ 60Hz, Series S: 1440p @ 60Hz)
- “Balanced” : This mode prefers image-quality at the cost of resolution (Series X: 1440p @ 60Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 60Hz)
- “Framerate” : This mode prefers higher frame-rate at 120 frames-per-second at the cost of both image-quality and resolution (Series X: 1440p @ 120Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 120Hz)
- NOTE: Not you must have a TV that supports 120Hz or VRR (Variable-Refresh-Rate) to take advantage of the “Framerate” mode fully
