Another day, another God of War update. Today's update, however, doesn't seem to bring just fixes for unspecified issues.

Several users have reported that the God of War 1.16 update has introduced some new issues that weren't found in the game before. Reddit user Josh_Shikari has reported that the game suffers from lighting issues.

I've been having really bad framerate issues since 1.15, the game is really stuttery now, and some of the lighting effects (light rays and how they interact with mist) have started to become quite pixelated.

Reddit user bigfoot1291 also provided a screenshot showcasing some of the reported issues.

I'm playing on a NON HDR / 4k TV (just a 1080p) on ps4 pro (favoring performance) and something definitely looks wrong to me. I thought I was going crazy, something definitely got messed up. Looks more like a lighting / shader issue in the actual game to me

On a more positive note, it seems like the update has fixed the Death Happened Here Trophy bug.

With such reports around, we suggest avoiding installing the update until more is known about it. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
