Not only does Xbox Series X prepare old games for the next generation of consoles, but you can also experience almost any PS4 title in a new light on PlayStation 5. Many also get various optimizations in the form of more stable frame rates or load times. faster.
And that includes God of War, one of the hugely successful titles of the PS4 era. It will be revamped to coincide with the start of the next generation of PlayStation and will receive some goodies on PS5.
Performance mode and savegame transfer
As developers at Santa Monica Studios announced on Twitter, the “PS5 version” of God of War has been given a performance mode.
Oops, didn’t it already exist? Yes, a performance option was already available on the PS4 Pro. There it increased the frame rate, but not to the extent that many would have liked. 60 FPS was not consistently achieved there.

And this is where the PS5 comes in: The developers promise a frame rate of “up to” 60 FPS in “Favor Performance” mode, but we’re pretty sure the frame rate should be constant.
And not only that: if you started the game on PS4 and then switched to PS5, you will be able to take your old save with you so that you can finish the game on the new console or continue in New Game + mode. Incidentally, this option will also be available for God of War 3 Remastered.
