God of War photo mode finally lets Kratos smile and take selfies

A new update for Sony Santa Monica’s God of War introduces a fully-fledged photo mode for the critically acclaimed adventure.

The PS4 exclusive launched last month without such a feature likely to prevent players from spoiling major plot moments and boss encounters. 

But now, you’re free to take screenshots with a variety of characters showcasing emotions you wouldn’t expect from them. It’s silly, but great fun if you’re in a first, second or third playthrough.

Much like Horizon: Zero Dawn and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy before it, God of War’s photo mode is packed with different ways to capture images such as filters, aperture, contrast and more.

You can gain access to it by downloading a free update right now, and just follow the instructions in-game to start snapping.

God of War is an absurdly gorgeous game, bringing the world of Norse Mythology to life with excessive detail and scope in everything it presents.

It’s also incredibly fun to play, too. Earning 9/10 in our review we praised its excellent combat system and truly touching narrative:

‘God of War tells a wonderful tale through a beautiful spectrum speckled with more than a few drops of the blood of your enemies. It’s a shame, then, that boss fights have fallen by the wayside at every level to become terribly monotonous – but if that’s the cost of what Santa Monica has built, it’s certainly a price worth paying.’
