Overwatch has been optimized for Xbox Series X|S, players can now select from various different performances and graphics settings.
A new resolution mode allows fans to play the team-based FPS in 4K at 60 frames-per-second on Xbox Series X, and at 1440p and 60 frames-per-second on Series S. Players can also select a framerate mode that reduces the resolution of the game but supports 120 frames-per-second.
Here is the official description via Blizzard:
- “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 fully take advantage of the “Framerate” mode.
There is no word on whether the update will be applicable for the PlayStation 5 version of the game.
