God of War Ragnarok is now available on PS4 and PS5, and those who have just received their physical copies of the game will be prompted to download update 2.02. The patch focuses on numerous bug fixes, but does appear to add anything major, as Photo mode remains absent from the game. Thankfully, the patch does resolve some of the minor issues that have been reported by players. The patch has also added support for Polish language and resolved some crashes that were tied to a specific situation.
