God Of War Is Getting A PS5 Patch Bringing An Enhanced Performance Experience

God of War is getting a PS5 patch tomorrow which will bring an improved 60FPS performance at the better 4K Checkerboard resolution.

The game initially ran better on PS5 at 60FPS but it was only in the lowered 1080p performance mode. On PS4 Pro, players had to choose between a 4K checkerboard experience or a performance mode.

In a blog post on the Sony Santa Monica site, the team said:

“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.

On the PlayStation 4 Pro version of God of War (2018), you have a choice between two graphics modes: one that favors performance and one that favors resolution.

Coming to you tomorrow on February 2nd, we will be releasing a free patch that 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!”
