PS5 VRR update release date revealed. Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) is a long-awaited function that has topped the PS5 owners’ wish lists, especially because both the Xbox X and Xbox S have already embraced display technology.
A new PS5 update is expected to release this week that will bring VRR – a technology that improves the performance of certain PS5 games – to Sony’s console.
PS5 VRR update release date
The software update with support for VRR will release globally starting the week of 25 April 2022. The best TVs have VRR, which is a typical feature that helps to prevent screen tearing when your TV’s image refresh rate isn’t in sync with the game you’re playing. With the PS5 VRR update, your TV’s display will be synced to the console output, eliminating screen tearing without affecting game performance. VRR requires an HDMI 2.1-compatible TV and PC monitor, according to Sony.
This is big news, as Sony previously stated that VRR support would be available “in the months ahead.” It appears that Sony has accelerated the process, claiming on the PlayStation Blog this week that all PS5s will have VRR capability this week.

Arkane Studios, the creators of Deathloop, has stated that VRR support will be added to the time-looping shooter in the near future. VRR support will be added to a number of Insomniac Games’ titles this week, including Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. However, something like Ghostwire Tokyo, which has several high frame rate modes, the majority of which are either unstable or show screen tearing, will benefit immensely from VRR.
