'God of War' Photo Mode: How to Download and Use New Feature

Santa Monica Studio has given players a wide array of options, from field of view and focal length tweaking to borders and filters.

Available through the options menu or via quick touchpad access if you enable it, you can mess around with things like camera, aperture, filters, borders and characters.

"With God of War, we hoped to craft a game experience that was both a technical and art showcase", wrote Santa Monica Studios Engineering Lead Jeet Shroff over at the PlayStation Blog. So, that could happen at some point. Few games in recent memory have had me constantly stopping to take in the gorgeous vistas and art direction like God of War has.

As evidenced in our review of Sony and Santa Monica Studio's action-adventure epic God of War, the PlayStation 4 exclusive is easily one of the best looking games to ever grace a console, as it's environments are diverse, expansive, and filled with a wide range of lovely colors and scenery.

Additionally, God of War 1.20 update brings an increase to text size throughout the game.

Will you be trying out this photo mode? When you activate it you can use the analog sticks to navigate the scene to find the flawless angle.

To control the Photo Mode camera, just use the Left and Right Thumb Sticks to navigate around the scene. You can also change the facial expressions of both Kratos and Atreus, so expect some absolutely hilarious screenshots of Sony's best dad pulling amusing faces. Until more updates come our way, Happy gaming. And my personal favorite, we've added the ability to change Kratos and Atreus's facial expressions.

Speculation about God of War patch 1.17 is that it fixes some fringe cases where HDR was bugged for some players. Of course, it also includes numerous stickers of Kratos looking gruff, so you can let your friends know that you are not to be messed with.
