Sony Santa Monica will offer players a lot of different graphics options in God of War Ragnarok, as a new report has revealed settings that support 4K/30 FPS, 60 FPS, and the coveted 120 FPS Performance mode.
New-gen video games have begun offering multiple modes of playing with some modes favoring visuals and fidelity, while others prioritize performance and framerates.
Thanks to a graphics mode options breakdown from Press Start, it’s been confirmed that God of War Ragnarok has a mode that supports 120 FPS on PlayStation 5.
God of War Ragnarok Preview
The modes listed in the report are as follows:
- Favor Resolution: 4K/30 FPS Locked
- Favor Performance: 60 FPS Locked
- Favor Resolution (High Frame Rate On): 4K/40 FPS Locked (HDMI 2.1 required)
- Favor Performance (High Frame Rate On): Targeting 120 FPS (HDMI 2.1 required)
As always with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, your television will need to support HDMI 2.1 in order to use the 120 FPS option.
The HDMI 2.1-exclusive 40 FPS option is very similar to the one we saw in last month’s The Last of Us Part I. Also worth noting, the report said the high frame rate performance mode “targets” 120 FPS, meaning it likely won’t hit that benchmark during more graphically intense sequences.
In our own God of War Ragnarok preview, we were impressed by the “engaging, emotional story with portions of Kratos violently ripping things in half sprinkled in during the touching opening moments.”
While your wait for our God of War Ragnarok review to drop on November 3, you can check out how production had to “get creative” to deal with Atreus’ changing voice. Or, get caught up on everything else we know about God of War Ragnarok, from trailers, to combat updates, a story synopsis, and more.
