The newest update for the Oculus Quest 2 software, v28, added a much requested feature to the headsets. Facebook have now officially launched support of 120Hz refresh rates. Now, a few days after the update has gone live, some games have already updated to take advantage of the higher refresh rates.
Quest 2 users can opt into the 120 Hz option via a toggle in the Experimental panel to experience these applications at higher frame rates.
This was the first Quest game to add support for 120Hz refresh rates. It is a relatively basic game but the core gameplay loop is fun and addictive. They don’t have much in the way of detailed or intricate art assets, physics simulations, or lighting effects. They must have had an easier time in supporting higher refresh rates.
The second Quest game to receive support for 120Hz refresh rates. Make sure to enable 120Hz support in the Experimental Settings menu of your Quest and in the video option settings of the game.
Eleven Table Tennis
The update has not yet been released, but the team behind one of the most accurate table tennis simulators have announced that they will be adding 120Hz support into the game. In my opinion, this is one of the best games on the Quest hardware and it will only get better with the increase in refresh rate.
The issue with high frame rates and refresh rates for headsets like the Quest 2 that do not have the power of a high-end gaming PC behind them means that developers will have to sacrifice visual quality and the complexity of the game. Despite this, less intensive games have already taken advantage of the update.
