With the release of the new generation of consoles, developers and publishers have been going back to their previous works and updating these titles with enhancements to take advantage of the new consoles’ increased power. Perhaps one of the most requested games to receive such a patch was 2018’s God of War. Finally, in a surprise announcement, fans are getting just that.
Making the announcement on its blog, Sony Santa Monica revealed that “our team has been working on a video graphics mode option that will enable players to get the most out of the increased performance capabilities of the PlayStation 5.”
The patch, which is going live today “replaces 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!”
PS5 players will now be able to play 2018’s God of War at a checkerboarded 4K at 60fps. Previously, thanks to backwards compatibility, PS5 players were given the option to play at either 4K 30fps, or 1080p at 60fps. Thanks to this new patch however, PS5 players will be able to experience the best of both worlds. If you want to play at 30fps for any reason, that option will remain available to you too.
