God of War PS5 Patch Brings 4K And 60 FPS

The God of War franchise is arguably one of the very best PlayStation exclusives that Sony has on offer.

The 2018 release was met with widespread positivity as players were immersed in the story of Kratos and his son Atreus attempting to scale the highest peak of the nine realms.

Since its release, Santa Monica Studio has provided regular updates and has added new features to the game.

Although its photo mode has proven a popular feature, the studio’s latest announcement has got fans talking once again.

Here’s everything you need to know about the PS5 optimisation patch!

God Of War PS5 Optimisation Update

God of War PS5 Update

Santa Monica Studio has unveiled the release date for a patch that will optimise performance of the 2018 release on PlayStation 5 consoles.

Prior to the studio unveiling the update, the best graphics options for the game let players select one of two modes. One focuses on the performance of the game while the other improves the resolution.

The optimisation patch will replace the current video graphics mode option with a new setting that capitalises on the immense power of the PS5.

Once players have downloaded the free update, God of War will sync to 60 frames per second and run in 4K Checkerboard resolution.

Players were able to run the game at 4K Checkerboard/60 FPS before the update was revealed. The method involved using an unpatched disc version of the game but with this free update, there’s no need to attempt the elaborate workaround.

God Of War PS5 Update Release Date

In a surprise announcement, Santa Monica Studio revealed that the update would be arriving to all PS5 players on February 2nd.

The update could mark the beginning of a new wave of updates as players experience the story on the next generation of PlayStation consoles.
