Sony’s Santa Monica Studio has announced that 2018’s PlayStation 4 exclusive, God of War, will be getting a dedicated PS5 patch on February 2.

Sony Santa Monica published a new statement on its website announcing that God of War is getting 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”.

“On the PlayStation 4 Pro version of God of War (2018), you have a choice between two graphics modes: one that favors performance and one that favors resolution,” says the statement.

The new patch removes those options on PS5, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the game in 60 FPS, 4K checkerboard resolution (at 2160p).

“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.”

Back in September, we heard that God of War will officially be getting a sequel, God of War Ragnarok set to arrive sometime in 2021.
