God Of War PS5 Save Transfer, Backward Compatibility Features Revealed
While we patiently await more news regarding the recently confirmed God of War sequel, fans can still take ol’ Kratos for a spin on the PS5 thanks to the console’s backward compatibility. The folks over at Santa Monica Studio recently revealed what backward compatibility features will work for God of War on the PS5 while also confirming that save data can be transferred from the PS4 to the pS5.
Santa Monica Studio took to Twitter to break down how PS4’s God of War will run on the PS5. According to the developer, users will be able to utilize the ‘Favor Performance’ video option when playing the 2018 title on the PS5. Doing so will enable the game to reach up to 60 FPS for that optimal buttery smoothness. Additionally, save transfers should work fine between the PS4 and the PS5, so there’s no need to start over (unless you want to jump into New Game+).
Whether you’re picking up the game for the first time or looking to finish that NG+ save, God of War (2018) on the #PS5 will offer:

If that’s not exciting enough news, Santa Monica Studio released a follow-up Tweet announcing that players can transfer their God of War III Remastered save data over to the PS5 as well, just in case you want to get your classic Kratos fix in on the PS5.
God of War is currently available on PS4.
