Santa Monica Studio has officially announced that God of War’s PS5 patch will be released tomorrow, February 2, and will bring a 4K/60 FPS mode to the PlayStation exclusive.
Announced on Santa Monica Studio’s blog, this free update will replace the current video graphics mode option with a new default setting that “will offer the best of both performance and resolution to our PlayStation 5 players.”[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/12/21/why-god-of-war-is-igns-2018-game-of-the-year”]
On the PlayStation 4 Pro version of 2018’s God of War, players would have to make a choice between a graphics mode that favored performance and one that favored resolution. Now, no sacrifice needs to be made.
God of War’s Enhanced Performance Experience offers the following;
- Syncs to 60 FPS
- 4K Checkerboard Resolution
There will also be an Original Performance Experience that can be selected at any time and will represent the PlayStation 4 ‘Favor Resolution’ video graphics mode. This mode offers 4K Checkerboard Resolution synced up to 30 FPS.[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=the-best-ps5-games&captions=true”]
Around the launch of the PS5, Santa Monica Studio announced that God of War would be able to run at 60 FPS in the ‘Favor Performance” mode on Sony’s next-gen console. Furthermore, save transfers are supported from PS5, so players can jump right back in to their game with these improvements whenever they wish.
