"With player choice being such a central theme to numerous decisions we made on God of War, we sought to deliver a photo mode with lots of options, and we're excited to put it in your hands", said Sony Santa Monica engineering lead Jeet Shroff in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

Santa Monica shared a few details on the mode, which showcases greyscale close-ups, traditional behind-the-back shots, and first-person angles.

There are five tabs in the photo mode menu: camera, aperture, filters, borders, and characters. So, that could happen at some point.

God of War is such a good-looking game, it needed a new way to celebrate it.

The studio's last major God of War patch added a visibility slider, allowing players to increase text size across the map, UI, and menus.

You can head to the PlayStation Blog (or look above) to see the photo mode in action.

Added photo mode, enjoy and share! Once it's activated, you can use the thumb sticks and R2 and L2 buttons to move the camera around the scene and pan up or down.

The official release detailed that the camera could be adjusted, filters can be added, borders may be included, and facial adjustments are able to be altered.

God of War is available exclusively for PlayStation 4 from the end of April. The 1.18 and 1.19 updates didn't have much info about them either, only citing unspecific bugfixes.

Everything from its combat, narrative, gameplay style and RPG elements make God of War easily one of the greatest titles of 2018 so far, but people have not been giving the visual fidelity enough credit. Then you should know that you will also have the option to deactivate the visualization of each of the characters that appear in your scene.

Sony Santa Monica also released some treats for iOS users in the form of stickers.
