The player controls the protagonist Kratos, the new God of War who has killed the former, Ares. Kratos is betrayed by Zeus, the King of the Olympian Gods, who strips him of his godhood.

Known Issues

Shifted, ghost-like image

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Kratos and other objects, characters have a shifted, ghosting like effect around them. Only visible if using any of the upscaling modes in GSdx. Native res. has no such problems. There's also vertical lines when using the Amulet of the Fates
  • Workaround: Go into GSdx's plugin settings and turn the resolution to 'Native' OR if you want to keep the upscaling, turn on 'Half-pixel Offset' in the 'HW Hacks' section.

Vertical lines under water and in hell

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Vertical lines under water and in hell
  • Workaround: Go into GSdx's plugin settings and turn the resolution to 'Native' OR if you want to keep the upscaling, turn on 'Aggressive-CRC' in the 'HW Hacks' section.
