God of War: Ragnarok Different Graphics Modes Announced for PS5, PS4 Pro, and PS4

According to the creator, Santa Monica Studio, God of War: Ragnarök has almost as many visual options as there are Norse gods and goddesses. The PlayStation 5 edition has more options than the PlayStation 4 version, so if you want the finest experience possible, you’ll need to have your PS5 connected to a modern TV.

Fortunately, several Polygon staff members have been playing God of War: Ragnarök for the past few weeks. As a result, while our comprehensive technical analysis piece is still in the works, we can already provide you with some fast advice on how to select from the game‘s extensive list of visual options.

Starting with the PS5 version, there are two graphics settings available: “Favor Performance” and “Favor Resolution,” which prioritize image quality above frame rate (as opposed to the default, which prioritizes frame rate over image quality).

There is a second “High Frame Rate Mode” toggle as well, but it will only function if your console is linked to a display with an HDMI 2.1 connector and a panel that runs at 120 Hz. Also, if you turn on HDMI 2.1 in the PS5’s system settings, God of War Ragnarok will use it automatically if your TV supports a variable refresh rate (VRR).

The PS4 has fewer possibilities because VRR and HFR are not supported by the last-generation console. Only PlayStation 4 Pros support the aforementioned Favor Resolution and Favor Performance options. The small model and the debut PS4 have no graphics options at all.

Here is a complete analysis of the resolution and frame rate for each choice, which frequently varies because God of War Ragnarök uses dynamic resolution scaling to maintain its goal frame rate in most modes:
