Companies like Santa Monica Studios have been sharing updates and information regarding the ways in which you can enjoy PS4 games on PS5. Heralded as one of the best games of 2018, God of War is a must-play experience whether you’re playing on PS4 or PS5.
If you started playing God of War on PS4 and want to continue playing on PS5 but are worried about having to start over again from the beginning, Santa Monica Studios has some good news for you. First, God of War will support save transfers from PS4 to PS5.
With this, you’ll be able to pick back up right where you left off, no need to start all over again. God of War will also support up to 60 FPS on PS5 through a ‘Favor Performance” video option. Santa Monica Studios had good news for God of War III Remastered fans as this game will also support save transfers from PS4 to PS5.
