How to Enable High Frame Rate Mode in God of War Ragnarok

When you boot up the game for the first time, you’ll be asked if you want God of War Ragnarok to prioritize performance or fidelity. This is pretty common and is a staple of most Sony first-party games. If you want the highest framerate possible, you’ll want to choose the “Favor Performance” option.

This will ensure you have a smooth 60 fps at the cost of reduced fidelity. So you won’t be playing in 4K, but you’ll get the extra frames to make up for it.

However, if you go into the settings and go to “graphics and camera’ you’ll notice another setting titled “High Frame Rate Mode.” This might be blocked out for you, and you won’t be able to access it. So how do you turn it on?

You actually need to have two things in order to enable high frame rate mode. You need to be using a 2.1 HDMI cable and have a television that supports 2.1 and Variable Refresh Rates. If you don’t have these things, you will not be able to access “High Frame Rate Mode.”

High frame rate mode is a PlayStation 5 exclusive feature, and as long as you have all of the proper hardware, you’ll be able to use it. If you’re having trouble, ensure your 2.1 HDMI cable is plugged into a port that recognizes 2.1. Some older televisions only have one port or two ports that can fully utilize the power.

Well, that’s everything you need to know about enabling high frame rate mode in God of War Ragnarok. For more tips, tricks, and guides, be sure to check out Prima Games. Here’s how to fix the “queued for copying” error.
