Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of the few games that offers 120 fps on next-generation consoles and is working properly.
One of the biggest new additions in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War I received almost no fanfare before the launch, which is a promise of 120fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
However, according to the new Digital Foundry report, this is easily one of the most impressive features. 120fps is available as an option on both PS5 and Xbox Series X, but not on Series S.
By default, Black Ops Cold War locks the resolution to 4K and uses the more manageable 60fps as the frame rate target. This is the most striking look mode in the game, supporting raytracing on PS5 and Xbox Series X, with the highest resolution.
In 60 fps mode, Black Ops Cold War most often keeps the target, and the resolution varies from scene to scene to keep the frame rate target. Digital Foundry reports no difference in the technical configuration of PS5 and Xbox Series X, with resolutions between 1800p and 2160p. In general, the Xbox Series X maintains a better target at 60fps.
In some cases, the PS5’s frame rate drops to 45 fps in cutscenes, but reports show that restarting the checkpoint resolves this issue and is a bug rather than a limit. The Xbox Series S offers the same 60fps mode as the only option, but with the raytracing effect completely turned off and operates from 1200p to 1440p.
To maintain 120fps on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, Black Ops Cold War plays at resolution, but is typically between 1080p and 1200p. This is a big drop from visual mode, but it doubles the frame rate, so it’s ultimately up to you.
