- God of War will receive an update adding expanded support for PS5. The game will run in 4K and 60 fps.
God of War will receive an update tomorrow, which will add expanded support for PlayStation 5. Sony Santa Monica announced that owners of Sony's new console will be able to enjoy the game in 60 fps and a maximum resolution of 4K, using checkerboard rendering (a method of rendering graphics in which the image consists of half of the target number of pixels, arranged on the screen in a checkerboard pattern).
The update will automatically replace the two available graphics modes on PS5 (a choice of either better visuals in 30fps or lower resolution in 60fps) with a single mode that delivers the smoothest gameplay and best visuals possible. However, if for some reason we want to revert back to the previous settings, there's an option in the in-game menu to enable the modes available on PS4 Pro.
God of War debuted in April 2018, garnering many nominations and awards, including the most prestigeous one at The Game Awards. Sony can also be pleased with the title's commercial success. It boasted over 10 million copies sold in 2019. As you can see, players liked the change to Norse mythology and the transformation that Kratos underwent. Who, by the way, may not have had appeared in the game at all.
God of War: Ragnarok is coming to PS5 this year.
