Superhot VR, one of the easiest and most enjoyable virtual reality games, gets a very sleek 120 Hz mode with Oculus Quest 2.
An action game where enemies only move and attack you while giving you time to plan slow-moving assassinations like the Matrix adds experimental support to the high refresh rate setting.
This should, in theory, create a much more enjoyable gaming experience for a game that was already the best in its class in terms of VR comfort. Moving objects should look smoother and the game mode more grounded thanks to the upgrade. However, the Superhot team emphasizes that this is an experimental option and that players must turn it off if they encounter errors or glitches.

120 Hz support for certain Oculus Quest 2 games began in April upgrade to 3D puzzle game cubism.
The space takes advantage of the extra processing power of the Oculus Quest 2 compared to its predecessor Oculus Quest, push more frames per second during playback, making the movement feel more vivid and smoother in the headphones.
However, it’s a demanding feature, and so few games may be able to take advantage of it – especially the graphically intensive games that already pushed the hardware to its limits. As a result, not all current games can retroactively increase 120 Hz space – although in the future we may find more names built from the ground up with 120 Hz in mind.
Either way, it’s great to see Facebook decide not to rest on its laurels with the already excellent Quest 2 and find more ways to deliver innovative experiences from what has already quickly become our favorite virtual reality headset.
