God of War PC vs. PS5 Comparison: Is There a Major Difference?
God of War is available now for PC through Steam while it is also playable at 60 FPS on the PS5, so which platform is ideal for it?
God of War was originally released exclusively for the PS4 back in 2018. The game has never received a native PS5 patch but it was updated to add 60 FPS support. This was the only addition to the game that runs at a checkerboard 4K resolution on the PS5 and supports 60 FPS.
Compared to the PS5 or the PS4 version, the PC version brings in improvements like improved shadow quality with the support of GTAO and SSDO and also improved screen-space reflections. The game also makes use of the DLSS technology and AMD FSR to provide a higher resolution without sacrificing performance.
In the video comparison by IGN, we can see the differences between the two platforms. On the one hand, we have the PC version maxed out and on the other hand, we have the game running on the PS5 at 60 FPS.
The game sports a plethora of options when it comes to tweaking the performance and visuals. There are options for key bindings too, so if you customize controls, there is no shortage of it on PC. All in, the PC version is a pretty impressive port with a lot of quality-of-life additions but if you have already played it at 60 FPS on the PC, there are no substantial upgrades for you to jump into the PC version.
God of War is available now for PC through Steam while you can also grab it on PS4 and play through the PS5 using backward compatibility.
