God of War fans will be getting a free PS5 upgrade patch that they can download this week. The God of War PS5 patch is out on Tuesday February 2, and will let you play Kratos and Boy’s critically acclaimed adventure in crisp 60FPS. The God of War PS5 patch will also offer 4K Checkerboard Resolution.
The news was announced in a blog post by Santa Monica Studio who said: “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!”
Here are the main features the God of War PS5 upgrade will bring to the table…
• Syncs to 60 FPS
• 4K Checkerboard Resolution*
If you previously bought God of War during the PS4 era and are lucky enough to have a PS5 console then you’ll be able to take advantage of this new patch.
If you don’t have God of War in your library but are a member of PS Plus then you can still see what the PS5 upgrade is like.
That’s because God of War is part of the PS Plus collection which is included on PS5 with your PlayStation Plus membership.
Talking about the PS5 upgrade, Santa Monica said: “The PlayStation 5 launch has been an exciting time for everyone here at Santa Monica Studio! We’ve been especially happy to see all the players who have taken advantage of backward compatibility to try out God of War (2018) on the new hardware; as well as those who have picked up the game for the first time through the PlayStation Plus Collection!
“Since then, 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.”
They also added: “You can go back to the original PlayStation 4 ‘Favor Resolution’ video graphics mode at any time by selecting Original Performance Experience, which will offer 4K Checkerboard Resolution synced to 30 FPS.”
God of War was first released back in 2018, and is one of the most critically acclaimed PS4 games.
According to Metacritic, God of War is the 5th best rated PS4 games of all time.
