Now that God of War Ragnarök is available on both PS4 and PS5, you may be wondering how well the game did on Sony’s previous generation console.
PS5 consoles are easier to buy than ever before in terms of availability at this time – Amazon is now (in fact, as of this writing) selling a PS5 bundle that includes God of War Ragnarök – but still, not everyone will be able to make that investment under current circumstances.
Hundreds of millions of PS4s have been sold, and many players are still using them. So how good is “God of War Ragnarok” for PlayStation 4? Read on to find out the answer.
Will God of War Ragnarök be available on PS4?
Yes, God of War Ragnarök will be available on PS4. If you do not yet have a PS5 in stock, you will be very pleased to hear this information.
You can order God of War Ragnarök for PS4 from retailers such as GAME and Amazon or directly from the console’s built-in store.
How does “God of War Ragnarök” work on PS4?
If you’ve been playing big new games on PS4 for the past few years (The Last of Us Part 2 comes to mind here), you may be wondering if God of War Ragnarök will make your trusty old console sound like it’s about to explode from overwork.
I have never played Ragnarök on my PS4 because I traded it into CeX. Still, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that, according to an article in The Washington Post, “the PlayStation 4’s base console looks and performs outrageously well.
The article adds, ” Images are sharp and crisp, especially with incredible high dynamic range color application. Even in the busiest action scenes, I did not notice any significant frame drops to my eyes.”
But expect noise from older consoles. The report notes that “PS4 fans will go into overdrive for the majority of games. I tested the game on a PS4 slim model … The fans could be heard from several feet away.”
Another thing to expect if you plan to play the game on PS4 is increased load times. The report states.” On the PlayStation 4, loading to save took about 50 seconds, on the PlayStation 5 it’s just a few seconds.”
As with the 2018 “God of War” game, you will notice that all loading should be hidden once you actually get into the game, which remains a very nice touch. (We suspect that the travel sections between realms may take a little longer on PS4, but that won’t be a huge price to pay.) PS4™ is not over yet. The old dog is still alive.
