God of War Ragnarok v.03.00 introduces a number of stability and performance fixes, but most of all, it brings photo mode to the game. Players, after having downloaded the new patch, can access the Photo Mode by pressing the Square Button from the Options menu in-game.

The update will be downloaded automatically but players can trigger the download manually by checking for updates. To do so, hover over the game in the Home screen of your PS4/PS5, press Options, and select “Check for Updates”. This will download the latest patch, v.03.00. The patch fixes several rare crashes as well as makes small improvements to UI/UX, Quests, and Equipment and Upgrades.

The new patch also contains a couple of PS4-specific improvements including better loading times of enemies in certain locations as well as improved loading times when traversing the world. This has got to be great news for PS4 players as load times can be a bit of a spot of bother for players.
