New God of War PC Update 1.0.5 Adds New Features and Fixes DLSS Sharpening Slider Issue; AMD Performance Issues Identified


God of War PC update 1.0.5 has been rolled out, adding new features to the PC port and addressing an issue with the recently-introduced DLSS sharpening slider. 

Last week's 1.0.4 update added a DLSS sharpening slider, which allowed players to adjust the level of sharpening, in turn, fixing some issues that players encountered with NVIDIA's rendering tech. The new patch for the popular PC port fixes an issue that prevented the feature from being disabled when setting the slider to “0”. In addition, this new update packs various other fixes and adds a total of 3 new features to the game, including a new mouse precision mode.
