Whether you’re picking up the game for the first time or looking to finish that NG+ save, God of War (2018) on the #PS5 will offer:
Up to 60 FPS using the ‘Favor Performance’ video option
Save Transfers – start right where you left off on the PS4!

On PS4, God of War targeted 30 frames per second when it was released, and it also included performance mode options for those playing on PS4 Pro. The Favor Performance mode had a cap of 60 fps on PS4 Pro, but in our God of War review, we said the game didn’t consistently hit that target.
Sony confirmed last month that almost every PlayStation 4 game will be playable on PS5. However, the ability to transfer save data to the next generation will be up to individual developers.God of War will be a part of the PlayStation Plus Collection, a set of PS4 games that will launch alongside PS5 for all PS Plus subscribers. Other games in the collection include Uncharted 4, Persona 5, Bloodborne, and more.
As for the studio’s current project, Sony Santa Monica is working on God of War Ragnarok, which was revealed at the September PS5 event with a 2021 release window.
