It was also mentioned that the team targeted 60 frames per second for the game, but as Director of Product Development Tim Moss, mentions below, God of War III: Remastered, achieves that goal.
I’ve been playing it a lot, because I’ve been working on it. It’s pretty damn good.
It definitely looked pretty good in 2010. We always have unhooked frame rate on all of our games. one of the God of War things is we never lock it to 30 and we always hope that everything is gonna get optimized to run at 60 even when we release it, but now of course on the PS4 it really does run at 60, and it’s an amazing game. It really is.
Moss also details that the improvements made by the Dualshock 4 controller also improve the experience,
The PS4 controller is a lot better than the PS3 controller. The sticks are better, the buttons are better, and that I think makes God of War 3 a more compelling game for me.
God of War III Remastered Coming to PS4 on July 14th
Senior Technical Artist Richard Greenspan expresses his feelings about the visual quality of God of War III Remastered.
It’s the same game but it really does look gorgeous.
God of War was meant to be played at 60 fps
It’s a game that’s meant to be played at 60, really, so it’s very nice.
