Sony will begin rolling out support for the variable refresh rate (VRR) feature for the PS5 through an update released this week, the company announced Monday.

“On HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TVs and PC monitors, VRR dynamically synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the graphics output from the PS5 console,” said Sony’s Hideaki Nishino. in a blog post† “This improves visual performance for PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts such as frame-pacing issues and screen cracks.” The feature will be available worldwide.

A handful of games will get VRR support “in the coming weeks,” according to Nishino’s blog:

  • Astro’s playroom
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • Lot 2
  • Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
  • dirty 5
  • god drop
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
