Sony has today allowed media outlets (including ourselves) to share a sneak peek at the first five hours of God of War Ragnarok, but given how all anyone wants to talk about is frame rates at the moment, we figured it best to share what the game has to offer on PS5. There are two graphical modes to choose from, but two more are available if your TV set has HDMI 2.1 compatibility.
For a total of four graphical modes, they are:
- Favour Resolution: 4K resolution at a locked 30fps
- Favour Performance: a locked 60fps
- Favour Resolution (High Frame Rate): 4K resolution at a locked 40fps (TV with HDMI 2.1 support needed)
- Favour Performance (High Frame Rate): Targets 120fps (TV with HDMI 2.1 support needed)
In our God of War Ragnarok PS5 Hands On article, we stress that the production values and amount of polish that has gone into the game ensure it'll look outstanding no matter what graphics mode you opt for. "But when push comes to shove, this is a release all about chopping mythical creatures into pieces with a magical axe, and it feels fantastic; there’s tons of combo potential, even in these early exchanges, and the game runs butter smooth at 60fps."
