In another tweet from Sony Santa Monica Studios, gamers were given a breakdown of the different graphics modes available for God of War Ragnarok on the PS5, as well as the Pro and standard models of the PS4. On the PS4 Pro, gamers willing to forego a bit of graphical polish for smoother action can choose a Performance mode that offers frame rates of 30 FPS or more in exchange for the occasional drop to 1080p. Quality mode allows the game to run at higher resolutions, but players may experience occasional drops below 30 FPS. God of War Ragnarok players on the standard PS4 will be limited to 1080p with a target frame rate of 30 FPS.

For PS5, God of War Ragnarok will include six different graphics modes to choose from, allowing gamers to prioritize graphics quality or performance. Performance modes will deliver the expected frame rate of 60 FPS and resolutions up to 2160p. The highest frame rates will be available on displays that support variable refresh rate. For optimal visual fidelity, Quality mode offers a frame rate of 30 FPS in native 4K. Like Performance mode, Quality mode can also run at lower resolutions to allow for faster frame rates on some displays. Whatever graphics mode players prefer, they can now preload God of War Ragnarok before the game is released.

No matter the console or the graphics mode chosen by the players, God of War Ragnarok promises to be one of the most breathtaking and action-packed titles of the year. After a recent PC release helped the first God of the war reaching a sales milestone, many PC gamers are no doubt hoping that this exciting sequel will then make its way to their favorite platform.
