Almost a month after its launch, God of War Ragnarok has finally gotten a photo mode. The latest in the God of War series launched on November 9th to critical acclaim but it was lacking one feature – a photo mode. Developer Santa Monica Studio promised that a photo mode would come after launch and now it is finally in the game.
Before the official release of God of War Ragnarok’s photo mode with the latest version 03.00 update, a modder managed to access an unfinished version of it.
God of War Ragnarok Photo Mode
The PlayStation Blog goes into detail about all the features that God of War Ragnarok’s photo mode has. There’s the usual stuff such as contrast settings, field of view, vignetting, depth of field and some other features you would expect to find in a decent photo mode.
It’s not as advanced as the photo mode in Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart or Ghost of Tsushima but it does the job. You can make the characters pull funny faces though which is pretty cool.
The only downside to Ragnarok’s photo mode is the lack of advanced lighting features like the one in the aforementioned Spider-Man: Miles Morales. I really like photo mode’s that let you add additional light sources, it means you can pull off some even more awesome-looking shots. And you don’t really have to worry about your subject being lit properly as you can add more lighting if needed.
The only other downside to the God of War Ragnarok photo mode releasing nearly a month after launch is that I have already completed the game and got the Platinum trophy. So I have only managed to take a few screenshots from where my last save left me. But, I suppose it’s an excuse to play through the game again at some point.
