After announcing it to the public yesterday, Santa Monica Studio releases an update that improves the performance of God of War on PlayStation 5.
Yesterday, Santa Monica Studio shared the news that God of War 2018 would receive a patch to improve the game on PlayStation 5. Without missing a beat, the PS5 patch for God of War is available today for players to hack, smash and blast your way through Midgard like Kratos in 60 FPS and 4K resolutions.
Santa Monica Studio announced the news on Twitter and its official website, detailing the changes players should expect in the update scheduled for today. The PlayStation 5 update for God of War allows the game to sync at 60 FPS, providing players with a smooth gaming experience as they crush countless enemies. The update also brings a 4K checkerboard patch, which will allow the game to update on 4K-capable devices.
Players will also have the option to forgo the 60 FPS setting by selecting the “Original Performance Experience” mode. This will allow players to experience God of War in the original 30 FPS while offering 4K checkerboard support. With the update, Santa Monica Studio offers players the opportunity to play God of War at the best available performance and resolution settings, rather than having players choose between the two as they had to on PlayStation 4 Pro.

God of War isn’t the first PlayStation exclusive to offer a PS5 performance upgrade, and it probably won’t be the last, as the PS5 can breathe new life into games and lead players to exclusive titles in the library of PlayStation. For example, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a launch game for the PS5, has some notable performance differences from its PS4 counterpart, as the current generation game can achieve a locked experience of 60 FPS, it has ray tracing and has been completely removed. loading screens.
The PS5 update for God of War marks the first game-related news that fans have heard from Santa Monica Studio in a few months. The last time fans heard an announcement from the studio was in September, when it shocked everyone with the announcement for God of War Ragnarok. The long-awaited sequel should mark the return of Kratos and Atreus, as the father and son duo are likely to face a new adventure on the PS5. The quick announcement trailer revealed that the game would be released in 2021, though fans have yet to hear any updates on the official release date.
