COD Black Ops Cold War Runs at 4K 120hz on Next-Gen Consoles

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will run at 4K resolution and with refresh rates of 120hz on next-gen consoles.In an interview with Venture Beat, Treyarch studio co-head Dan Bunting said: “We want to make sure that the framerate is responsive, and that it feels like there’s nothing on the technical side preventing you from having a good time.”Supporting a refresh rates of 120hz means the potential of up to 120fps. The article does not state if Cold War will be locked at 120fps on next-gen, but if the PS5 and Xbox Series X are capable of such frame rates in 4K with the graphical fidelity shown in the new trailer, then it’s a seriously strong showing.

In addition to high frame rates, the PS5 version of the game will also support haptic feedback, while both consoles’ SSD drives mean that Cold War has no loading screens between cinematics and gameplay. And, not to miss out on next-gen’s flagship tech, the game features real-time ray tracing. That’s a lot to render at 120fps.

It’s worth noting that not all TVs have such high refresh rates (many older models are capped at 60hz or 100hz) and those that do support 120hz require high-speed HDMI v2.1 cables to deliver the frame rates. If you’re hoping for this kind of performance it’s worth seeing what your TV can output. But even 4K/60fps from Cold War is likely to look impressive.

If you’re not up to date with this year’s COD, Black Ops Cold War is a return to the original BlOps team of Mason, Woods, and Hudson and is set in 1981. It releases this November 13 and will be available in a variety of bundles.
