God of War won’t have a photo mode at launch, but it is something developer Santa Monica Studio definitely wants to bring to the game.
Following the recent God of War preview event, Daily Star sat down with God of War game director Cory Barlog to discuss the demo. During the interview, Barlog was asked about the possibility of a Photo Mode for the game.
“It’s something that we’re definitely looking at,” Barlog said. “The photo mode has got to be something really cool. Like people have sort of raised the bar on photo mode. So, I’m not talking about it much right now because I think we need to do something really cool.”
Whatever Barlog has in mind, it doesn’t sound like we’ll have to wait to long to hear about it.
“A lot of games kind of finish and they shortly after the release put a really cool photo mode out,” he continued. “So I think I’d like to follow suit in that respect and put something out. Something where I think, ‘That’s great.’ Like something that can stand toe-to-toe with some of the better photo modes out there.”
While not guaranteed, it sounds like a safe bet that fans will see a photo mode in God of War not long after launch, in a similar way that a post-release update brought the feature to Horizon Zero Dawn. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Shadow of the Colossus Remastered launched with Photo Modes, so God of War will need one of its own to keep pace with its PlayStation brethren.
Fans learned much about God of War following the recent event, including details on the game’s hardest difficulty, the fact that the developer plans to continue the series in the setting of Norse myth, and that the two to three hour demo was only about five percent of the game’s total runtime.

God of War is slated to launch April 20th, exclusively on PlayStation 4.
