God of War Ragnarok graphics modes detailed for PS5 and PS4

Santa Monica Studios has detailed the various graphic modes for God of War Ragnarok for PS5 as well as PS4.

God of War Ragnarok launches next week and will come with a total of nine graphics modes, depending on your console and TV. Personally, I will only have access to two modes as I have a standard 4K TV. However, if you have a fancy 120Hz TV, then you’re in for a treat.

We reviewed God of War Ragnarok!

In our review of God of War Ragnarok, we said: “There is a venn diagram for God of War 2018 fans where some liked the combat, others liked the story, and many enjoyed both. Ragnarok is everything you loved about the previous title, but amplified.
