The God of War PC release has been a great success, and it garnered critical reception. However, like most releases nowadays, the launch has not been completely smooth. The experience of some players has been hindered, thanks to a couple of bugs. So, the developer has released a new update to address these issues.

Patch 1.0.4 brings a highly demanded feature to the game. Players can now set a custom DLSS Sharpening value, thanks to the new slider introduced. The patch also fixed the bug where Atreus will become unresponsive after loading a saved game or restarting a checkpoint.
