God of War 1.20 Patch Adds Photo Mode, Larger Text Sizes


God of War is out now and critics at the very least agree the game looks visually stunning. So what do visually stunning games need? That's right, a photo mode. A new update that went live today finally gives players access to a suite of photo tools for God of War to take and share some good looking screenshots.

Patch 1.20 adds Photo Mode to God of War which can be accessed in the Options Menu, or added to the Touch Pad Quick Access. The latter can be enabled in the game's settings.

Photo Mode gives players control of the game's camera which can be manipulated using the left and right thumb sticks. R2 and L2 will pan up or down, and square reverts the camera to its original position.

After you get the right angle, there are five settings to help you create the perfect shot. Camera can adjust the field of view and focal length; Aperture changes depth of field, focus, and F-Stop; Filters will add different effects; Borders can frame your photo how you want; and Characters toggles which characters are visible and even lets you change their facial expressions. So that means you can make your own creepy smiling Kratos.

Other accessibility updates added to God of War with 1.20 patch includes options to toggle the text size in the game. The small text sizes were one of the chief complaints related to the game's quality of life and it's good to see it finally remedied.
