Sony has released a new patch for God of War on the PS4 today. The 1.20 update deployed a variety of new features both big and small. One of the major new addons is Photo Mode.
In God of War Photo Mode you can:
- Adjust the field of view and focal length of the camera.
- Adjust depth of field, focus distance, and F-Stop of the aperature.
- Add a multitude of filters.
- Add a vignette, borders, and the God of War logo.
- Toggle Kratos’, Atreus’, and other characters’ visibility and change Kratos’ and Atreus’ facial features.
Players can control the camera fairly easily in this mode. The photo they snap can then be edited with borders, filters and other effects. You can even add or remove certain characters from the shot and change their facial expressions.
Additionally, God of War 1.20 update brings an increase to text size throughout the game. Menu, subtitle and other text instances should now be easier to read for gamers that it was issue for before.
Since the game released on April 20, God of War has undergone a total of ten updates overall. Previous patches fixed various rendering and graphical bugs as well as improved performance overall. Sony are clearly very committed to crafting the perfect game wherein Kratos shouts “BOY!” in between slicing up Norse mythology.
Although one sour note is that, according to Cory Barlog, there aren’t any plans in the works for story DLC at this time. That means future patches will focus primarily on bug fixes and minor features. And while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it may disappoint some fans.
