This is quite the enticing news for graphics nerds. Previously the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game had players choosing between a performance mode or resolution mode. This saw you favouring frames or graphical fidelity depending on which you chose. Now, players will get the best of both worlds with the update offering no compromise. Now, you can enjoy God of War in all its 4K, 60FPS glory.
With God of War’s sequel due sometime later this year, and the game available as a part of the PS Plus Collection, this PS5 update seems all the more enticing. There’s been no better time to jump into (returning or for the first time) slaying some Gods. Get your axe ready, boy.
