God of War Ragnarok PS4 & PS5 Resolution and Frame Rate Revealed
Information regarding the resolution and frame rate in Santa Monica Studio’s upcoming God of War Ragnarok on PS4 and PS5 has been revealed.
Those with early copies of God of War Ragnarok have revealed information (via Eurogamer) regarding the game’s resolution and frame rate, as well as the performance modes that players will be available to choose. Players can choose from a variety of performance settings in God of War Ragnarok, which essentially comes down to four options.
God of War Resolution & Frame Rate Options
God of War Ragnaork on PS5 will give players the option to choose between four different graphical profiles. One of these settings will favor a higher resolution at a lower refresh rate, while the other will make compromises on resolution in order to deliver a higher frame rate.
- Favor Resolution: in this mode, the game will run at a native 4K resolution and target a frame rate of 30fps
- Favor Performance: those who’d prefer better performance can switch to this mode, which targets a frame rate of 60fps along with a dynamic resolution upscaled to 4K
- Favor Resolution (High Frame Rate Enabled): on HDMI 2.1 supported displays, the game will run at a native 4K resolution and target a frame rate of 40fps
- Favor Performance (High Frame Rate Enabled): those playing on HDMI 2.1 supported displays who’d prefer even higher performance than Performance mode can switch to this mode, which targets a frame rate of 120fps while running at a lower dynamic resolution upscaled to 4K
Meanwhile, according to a YouTuber/streamer with early access to the game on PS4, it performs similar to the 2018 original. This means that the game targets a frame rate of 30fps on the previous gen console. 2018’s God of War ran at a resolution of 1080p on PS4, and checkerboard 4K on PS4 Pro, and things are expected to be similar for Ragnarok.
Previously, patch notes for update 1.01 for God of War Ragnarok as well as its download size were revealed. The update primarily aims to improve the state of the game from the default version 1.00 that comes on disc. It was rolled out on October 10, 2022. The download size of the update comes in at 18.3 GB.
God of War Ragnarok recently went gold, therefore this update will likely not be included in physical copies at launch. For those who pre-ordered a digital copy of God of War Ragnarok on PSN, the update should come pre-installed with the game. It is mainly to address bugs and issues that persist in version 1.00. Other improvements may include performance gains, though that has yet to be confirmed.
