God of War Ragnarok will ship with a total of four graphics modes, allowing players to customise their gameplay to their liking. 

God of War: Ragnarok is just around the corner now and today we've got a bunch of new information about the game, including the confirmation about the graphics modes that will be available on launch.

Sony and Santa Monica Studio devs have implemented four graphics modes including both 30 FPS and 60 FPS, as well as some extra. 

Below, you'll find a detailed description of each graphics mode in God of War Ragnarok.

Here are God of War Ragnarok Graphics Modes: 

4K/30FPS Locked - This mode obviouly favours resolution and fidelity so if you want God of War Ragnarok to look the best it can, stick to 4K/30 FPS mode.

60 FPS Locked - This is God of War Ragnarok's first performance mode. It will lock the frame rate to 60 FPS and offer a lower resolution and less detail on screen.

4K/40FPS (requires HDMI 2.1)- For those who want higher resolution but also a bit higher frame rate. This mode apparently locks the frame rate to 40 FPS for smoother gameplay but doesn't sacrifice the resolution as much as the 60 FPS mode.

120 FPS (requires HDMI 2.1) - If you would rather have super smooth gameplay instead of high resolution and graphical fidelity, God of War Ragnarok will have a mode that targets 120 FPS.

IGDB god of war ragnarok God of War Ragnarok looks stunning and judging by the confirmed modes, it can also run great

So there you have it. Plenty of options to choose from. We really have to say that this should be the standard for the video games industry moving forward and certain devs who lock their games to 30 FPS without any additional performance modes should take note. 

God of War: Ragnarok is officially coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on November 9, 2022. 


Thanks, Press Start.
