Star Wars Squadrons 120FPS support available on Xbox Series S & X

But not PS5.

Star Wars Squadrons 120FPS support has been added to both Xbox Series S & X while PS5 players will seemingly miss out.

The update means players will have two options to choose, depending on the Series console they have. The visual priority will run at up to 1440p and 60fps on Xbox Series S, or up to 2160p and 60fps on Xbox Series X. A performance priority mode will run at up to 1440p and 120fps on Xbox Series S and up to 2160p and 120fps on Xbox Series X. Both consoles will support Variable Refresh Rate provided you’ve a compatible display.

While the PS5 won’t be able to hit 120FPS — largely due to differences in the ways in which the consoles support backwards compatibilty, if reports are to be believed — it will offer up “improved visual quality and lighting” as compared to the game played on PS4.

Full patch notes for the update can be found here.

Star Wars Squadrons is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, and PS4. It’s backwards compatible on new, current-gen consoles and also can be played in VR.
