The Graphics Settings Available in God of War PC

God of War

2018’s phenomenal God of War is finally making its way to PC this Friday, and if you’re considering adding it to your library, you might be wondering what graphical settings are available in it.

The good news is that unlike many ports of console games, God of War has a wide range of graphics and display settings to tinker with. So, if you have a powerful PC, you can take God of War beyond what it looks like on PS4 Pro and even PS5. But even if you have a PC that sits somewhere near to the minimum system requirements, the visuals are still probably going to impress you. You’ll just miss out on extra flair like additional atmospherics and more realistic shadows.

You’ll find all the settings related to God of War‘s visuals in two sections of the Options menu: Display and Graphics. In the Display menu you’ll find the following settings:

  • Display Mode – Borderless or Windowed
  • Aspect Ratio – Auto, 16:10, 16:9, 21:9
  • VSync – On or Off
  • FPS Limit – Off, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120
  • Motion Blur – 0-10
  • Film Grain – 0-10

There’s also an Advanced menu in the Display setting menu, which allows you to change the following:

  • Nvidia Reflex Low Latency – Off, On, On+Boost
  • Latency Markers – Off, On
  • Latency Flash – Off, On

And finally in the Display menu, there are these options under Resolution Scaling:

  • DLSS – Off, Ultra Performance, Performance, Balance, Quality
  • FidelityFX Super Resolution – Off, Performance, Balanced, Quality, Ultra Quality
  • Render Scale – 50-100%

In the Graphics menu, you’ll find the below options, allowing you to further tweak the game’s visual quality to your preferences:

  • Preset – Low, Original, High, Ultra, Custom
  • Texture Quality – Min, Low, Original, High, Ultra
  • Model Quality – Original, High, Ultra
  • Anisotropic Filter – Min, Low, Original, High, Ultra
  • Shadows – Low, Original, High, Ultra
  • Reflections – Disable, Original, High, Ultra, Ultra+
  • Atmospherics – Low, Original, High, Ultra
  • Ambient Occlusion – Disable, Original, High

It’s worth noting that using the Low and Ultra presets doesn’t actually set the game to its lowest of highest possible settings. Selecting Low, for example, sets Texture Quality to Low rather than Min, while the Ultra preset sets Reflections to Ultra rather then Ultra+. So, if you want the highest or lowest possible settings, make use of the Custom preset.
