God of War (2018) gets a free 4K 60FPS update for PS5

Play God of War in the best way possible on PS5.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

While God of War (2018) for the PS4 is a beautiful game, it is limited to only 30FPS if players want to play in 4K resolution (using Favor Resolution mode), if they have a PS4 Pro that is. Players do also have the option of playing the game at 1080p on the Pro with an uncapped framerate (using Favor Performance), but it does not hit a consistent 60 frames per second.

Soon though, players will be able to play God of War at 4K resolution and at 60FPS on the PS5 as Santa Monica Studio has released a free patch for the game. This new patch gives players an Enhanced Performance Experience graphics option. This option for the game on PS5 features:

  • Syncs to 60 FPS
  • 4K Checkerboard Resolution
  • 2160p

This Enhanced Performance Experience option essentially combines the Favor Resolution and Favor Performance mode on God of War for PS4 Pro, but is even better as it promises a consistent 60FPS. Though PS5 players still have the option of playing the game at 4K 30FPS with the Original Performance Experience option (I’m not sure why you would want to play in 30FPS though).

For PS5 owners who are interested in playing God of War, the game is available as a standalone purchase, and as a part of the PlayStation Plus Collection.
