God of War PC Update 1.0.4 Adds DLSS Sharpening Slider, Fixes Frozen Atreus Bug, and More


God of War finally arrived on PC just a couple weeks ago, and developer Sony Santa Monica Studio has been doing a solid job of keeping up with the inevitable issues via patches. The most significant change in the latest update is the addition of a DLSS Sharpening slider, as some people found it was turned up too high by default, causing flickering and some other issues. Some other bugs have been resolved as well, including problems with Atreus becoming unresponsive.

For those who haven’t been keeping up with God of War’s jump to PC, Wccftech’s Alessio Palumbo was quite impressed with the port in his full impressions

Overall, even if the optimization work isn't quite perfect yet, God of War PC is now undoubtedly the best way to experience Sony Santa Monica's masterpiece. While it's not the best console to PC port I've ever seen, it features slightly better graphics than the original thanks to the higher settings available, not to mention the much higher frame rates and lower system latency, both of which elevate the incredible combat of God of War even further.

God of War is available now on PC, PS4, and playable via backward compatibility on PS5. Update 1.0.4 can be downloaded now.
