Was your PS4 running like it couldn't keep up with GoW? It's now fixed with patch 1.13 God of War Update Version 1.13 Patch Releases With Minor Fixes | Shacknews and earlier 1.12God of War PS4 UPDATE - New PlayStation patch makes one crucial change | Gaming | Entertainment | Express.co.uk which increases text size. 

Personally my PS4 went from a speaker emulating an electric lawn mower, sometimes bordering on a chainsaw to a hair dryer on low settings, there were times there I thought my PS4 might blow and if they managed to fix the game to run smoother in such a short period of time, I gotta wonder what testing they did for the OG and if my PS4 was in actual danger. Whatever the case is it's much improved and loading time (the time it takes for the fast travel gate to appear) is much lessened.

How was your OG before and how is it now?

My PS4 Pro did sound crazy, but I've yet to try this game on my PS4. Glad text sizes have been improved. it was tiny.



I'm playing on a Pro. Didn't notice it being especially loud.



Your console probably had a poor thermal jobby at the factory, my three year current ps4 is quieter than a brand spanking new one.



1.12?

You're late. Mine is at 1.13.

Quite as a mouse on any other game, only ever throwing on the fans when I stick on some 4/5k vr videos and it also revs up during GT sport VR tour. Otherwise GoW has the only game, pre patch that seemed to make it go crazy. Gladly, they've fixed it with this patch, whatever they done to make the game run smoother taxes the poor bugger less.

Yeah, got the 1.12 yesterday and the 1.13 today. I have a Pro so no noise issue at all. It's surely true that the text size is better, I didn't notice the size anymore lately :D

Yeah, must be 1.13 that done, did it. I googled instead of checking the patch notication on my ps4, lazy me.



1.13 is already out : https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/950313/God-of-War-1-13-New-update-PS4-games
