Graphics Modes in GOW Ragnarok – Similar to what other AAA PlayStation titles come with, this year’s God of War Ragnarok will feature a handful of performance tuning options for PS5 users while cutting down some options for the PS4 Pro players.
One of this year’s most highly anticipated titles, God of War Ragnarok, is here. It is the sequel to the already famous 2018 title God Of War, which was released on PlayStation consoles initially but later released for PC.
With the kind of Graphics and mechanics they have implemented in this game, many thought that the game would only be a PlayStation 5 exclusive but to our surprise, it supports both the PS5 and the last generation PS4.
The Story revolves around Kratos and Atreus, where you will have to embark on an epic journey to visit each of the nine realms to find the answers while the Asgardian soldiers prepare themselves for a battle to end the worth. You will encounter beautiful mythical locations and face those realms’ ferocious gods and monsters.
We have been waiting for a long time for an update from Santa Monica Studio regarding the Graphics modes and the performance settings that it has to offer, and finally, we have word from the developers.
So this article is all about the Graphics Modes currently available for God of War Ragnarok.
God of War Ragnarok Graphics Modes
Like other PlayStation games like Gran Turismo 7 from Polyphony Digital and Horizon Forbidden West from Guerrilla Games, God of War Ragnarok’s target resolution will be 1920×1080. The game allows bumping it up to 2560×1440 for the Base PlayStation 4 model.
For PlayStation 4 Pro, GOW Ragnarok will also cover two graphics aspects. One of them will target a higher level of performance with Dynamic Super Resolution and unlocked Framerate at a resolution of 1920×1080. At the same time, the Quality Mode will feature the 2560×1440 resolution while locking the game at 30FPS.
The current generation console, PlayStation 5, offers a lot of graphics options for you to try out. The Performance modes are targeted towards playing at 60FPS or more. Fidelity Graphics Modes are locked at 30 FPS, supporting a resolution of up to 4K. Because of these graphics options, both the PS5 and the PS4 owners will have a great time playing this title.

God of War Ragnarok is the epic conclusion of Kratos’s Norse Saga, and we are hyped up for this title.
