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.
