In this brand new Enhanced Performance Experience, it combines the modes to offer an incredibly crisp 60fps that almost never drops below that, while still maintaining the beautiful 4K checkerboard resolution.
Great game Great performance Can't ask for anything better than that can ya?
A worthy sequel.
Too late for that. Just like Horizon we're gonna get a gimped PS4 game with just prettier visuals. So awesome Sony...
Mr Logic Source? And please don’t mention the prior developer who has nothing to do with the current god of war.
^Vermin, I believe what Logic is referring to is how H:FW is a cross gen game instead of a solely PS5 title. GoW has that same potential as well. Barlog stated that the time to make the sequel would be less due to the bulk of their development was building the framework for the new series. And since they did that, it means they can make the sequel in half the time and (most likely) for both PS4 and PS5. I wont say either game will be gimped, they will be the best they can be for either platform. I, for one, welcome cross gen. Especially considering how difficult it still is to acquire a PS5 without selling a kidney... or my first born.
@Vermin What prior developer? Only the PSP games were not handled by Sony SM. As for a source how about Jim Ryan, the current PlayStation President and CEO. In an interview he refused to answer whether GOW2 is coming to PS4, that is a tacit acknowledgement. It would have been very easy for him to just say "No, GOW2 is built from the ground up to take full advantage of PS5 and an old system simply cannot handle that." Mark my words, it will be on PS4. @darthv72 I wish I could agree. It will not be the best it can be for either platform, because the best it can be on PS5 simply would not run on a PS4, with its ~2011 era hardware. It WILL be the best the PS4 can be and have updated resolution/fps/texture/effects /etc. but that's not what I want from a new console. If that's what we're doing then just sell me a PS4 Pro+ or some crap. I don't want to play prettier PS4 games, I want to play games that couldn't be made on PS4. Same way I didn't want to play prettier PS2 games on PS3 or prettier PS3 games on PS4.
^in due time logic... in due time.
Gow was awesome on ps4, why wouldn't it be awesome again?
I'm sure DF could find something negative to nit pick then devote an entire video to it. Oh wait they already did that huh...
But by your past logic, Sony must have paid IGN for this positive article, no?
No, that's your incorrect interpretation of what I said, not what I said.
So when MS gets positive press - it’s paid for. When Sony gets positive press - it’s legit No bias to see here, move along.
@Orchard They did write an article like that though.
They did @deep_space_one. But when DF writes anything anti Sony or Pro Microsoft, utopian claims MS paid for the article. So I’m wondering is this article paid for by Sony or how do we identify paid for articles?
Been waiting for PS5 update before playing this. 60fps should be the standard for all PS5 games...or at least the option for reduced visuals/resolution in exchange for it. My fear is that once games are produced for the PS5 generation exclusively we will be back to choppy 30fps again (albeit with next gen visuals). I just struggle to go back to 30fps personally.
Yeah now that I've played more 60fps titles, I'll generally choose lower resolutions or turn off ray tracing to get the 60fps.
Yeah same here! Tried the graphics mode on AC Valhalla, Miles Morales and Demon's Souls and each time I went back to the 60fps performance mode. I'll always choose framerate over resolution
Ray tracing is the death of 4k/60 and its barely noticeable in general gameplay so far.
I see many here undersell ray tracing. I think it is a game changer when done well and is the main thing that has stood out to me as a next gen feature on the new consoles. It’s something I never really knew I wanted until I seen it done in Spider Man and a few other titles. That said, I am glad many developers are now providing options. The enjoyment of any feature over another is clearly subjective.
I'm more than happy for them to run checkerboard 4K again on PS5 if it gives us 60fps. I believe it can give you up to 30% more performance. This game looked fantastic on a 4K screen.
Wow indeed! It takes 21 seconds for the PS5 to load a level
Sick of ppl using last gen games to measure next gen performance.
@BenRC01, Meh... What'evs... Go make a sandwich!
Game was already great at 30fps, 60 is just the cherry on top.
Ya know it's funny, I looked through your 34 days of comments and before the other day when I called you out you didn't have one positive thing to say about Sony. Now you're all of a sudden in every article making really banal comments like this. It's almost like you're pretending to be unbiased to try to game the system.
Sounds like you need to look a bit harder - I’ve commented positively on Sony, MS and Nintendo. Not a fanboy like yourself. I like games first and foremost. Also what system? Only a fanboy would think a gaming website is a “system”
No, you really haven't your first few comments were so one sided you clearly created that account for one purpose. You can say whatever you want but your past is in your comments for everyone to see. Your just being fake now acting like your unbiased in order to try to make your augments seem valid. You're fake. Your history tells the real story.
Or maybe they're just a fan of the game? I know that sounds outlandish but go with it. Reading your comments, you seem to have something personal against Orchard. What does it matter to you whether they are biased or not? Are you really that fragile?
ScootaKuH No he's not. He is a liar who says things in order to make his opinion seem more valid. He has done this same stuff repeatedly. Don't let him fool you. And as for me and him, why don't you take a closer look and see that it's not me having an issue with him, it's him following me around and arguing with me. Look who makes the first and second comment. I made the comment about DF above then there he was to attack me. Everything else follow after that. check the comment history. he keeps doing this every time I comment. It's not me following him it's him following me. And it's not just me he's argumentative with a lot of people, and he doesn't know when to quit.
Got hold of a ps5 last week and was looking forward to GoW as hadn't played it but kept hearing good things about it, then I heard about this upgrade :-D
You're in for a treat! No need to compromise between resolution and framerate like we did with the PS4 Pro version. Best of both worlds here. Enjoy!
When Microsoft does this with an older game it is bad. When Sony does it, it is amazing!?!🤔
