Prepare to take only the most epic of screenshots with the new God of War Ragnarok photo mode, which allows you to customize your image in-game to get not only the perfect angle but the perfect expression.
God of War Ragnarok was out here breaking records in week one, and players seem to love everything about the single-player adventure. One of the best parts of being a gamer is sharing something interesting you have found in a game with friends, or just seeing something absolutely radical and wanting to savor it for years to come. As an avid gamer myself, there are some points within a storyline that I want to remember for as long as possible, but getting the emotion portrayed and the scenery caught just right is usually difficult to master.
Luckily, photo mode takes all of the guesswork out, and Sony has added some pretty nifty features to make it even better. One of the interesting features is of course the ability to apply expressions to certain characters. Those characters include Kratos, Atreus, Freya, Brok, Sindri, Angrboda, Thor, and Thrúd. In a dark and decrepit area filled with monsters? You can make Kratos' face reflect that by applying a terrified or even angry expression. Another extremely cool feature is being able to hide the characters in the shot. Nothing is worse than having this beautiful scenic view with a bloodied character stuck center screen.
On top of those two features comes the ability to adjust the camera controls. Players can change the field of view, focal length, and camera roll with just a few taps of some buttons. Players will also be able to adjust the shutter controls as well, meaning they can adjust the depth and focus distance. Want better lighting? There have also been numerous filters added that you can lay overtop of the screen in real-time, as well as adjust the brightness to whatever your heart desires.
