The new season of Call of Duty Warzone arrived earlier today. In addition to tons of new maps, weapons, and game modes, Call of Duty also enabled 120hz gameplay for the PlayStation 5.

While Sony has not been as quick as Xbox in introducing this feature, the fact that PlayStation games are back-compatible opens a host of possibilities for existing PS4 games. This feature is only available to those who have HDMI 2.1 TVs.

If you have previously enabled 120hz gameplay for other games on your PS5, then Warzone should automatically run at these revamp settings. However, if this is not the case, then you will have to follow these steps:
