Get ready to wield that magical axe and protect your son at all costs in a new and upgraded way, as Santa Monica Studio has announced that they are releasing a God of War update with an Enhanced Performance Experience for the PS5

Here’s the announcement from the studio’s official Twitter.

With the release of the PS5 last fall, Santa Monica has been hard at work to develop a video graphics mode option for players to get the most out of their PS5 experience.

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!


  • Syncs to 60 FPS

  • 4K Checkerboard Resolution*

  • 2160p*

On a related not for Santa Monica Studio, the company has put out a job listing for a second unannounced project they are working on alongside the upcoming God of War sequel, God of War Ragnarok.

God of War is available exclusively for the PS4, and is backwards compatible with the PS5.
