Overwatch Comparison: Xbox One vs. Xbox Series X|S - Fight!

Richard Walker

This week, Overwatch received an update for Xbox Series X|S, introducing next-gen visual enhancements, available across three different graphics modes, favouring resolution, framerate, or a balanced middle ground.

Handily, the modes are marked as ‘Resolution’, 'Balanced', and ‘Framerate’ under Overwatch's newly-added ‘Preferred Mode’ option, and we've experimented with all three, sticking them side-by-side to see how big a difference each setting makes.

Here's what each graphics mode does in Overwatch for Xbox Series X|S, as per Blizzard's official forums:

  • “Resolution” : This mode prefers higher-resolution output at the cost of some image-quality (Series X: 4K @ 60Hz, Series S: 1440p @ 60Hz)
  • “Balanced” : This mode prefers image-quality at the cost of resolution (Series X: 1440p @ 60Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 60Hz)
  • “Framerate” : This mode prefers higher frame-rate at 120 frames-per-second at the cost of both image-quality and resolution (Series X: 1440p @ 120Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 120Hz)
