The Xbox Series X and Series S bring a lot of power to the entertainment center, which enables some pretty cool new features. One of those is the ability to run games at 120 FPS, making your gameplay smoother than ever, especially when combined with Variable Refresh Rate (VRR).
The thing is, not every game will support this new framerate, as it’s down to the individual developers to implement.
We’ve gathered together all the titles that have 120 FPS support, whether it’s in the full game or just in specific game modes.
So, which Xbox games support 120 Hz on the Xbox Series X or Series S?
Short answer: It’s a short list (so far)
Here is the current list of Xbox games that support the 120 FPS mode.

The Xbox Series X and Series S also have the option to double framerates of backward compatible titles, so some 60 FPS games may be able to run at 120 FPS on the new consoles. That’s going to be down to developer support, so we’ll have to wait and see how many titles get this level of support.
The Xbox Director of PM has said that the feature is coming, so maybe some of the best games you can play on your new Xbox will be older titles.
