God of War Ragnarok’s photo mode should offer players the perfect way to take a photo. Unfortunately, it’s proving to be an elusive feature.

God of War Ragnarok is an incredibly cinematic experience from start to finish. Its visual flair allows players to take beautiful photographs across its many locations.

Even its bombastic boss fights, like the challenging fight against Thor himself, offer perfect moments to take a photo.

However, accessing the photo mode is proving to be a challenge for some. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.

How to Take Photos in God of War Ragnarok

Unfortunately, there is currently no photo mode in God of War Ragnarok. Players cannot take impressive photos of their coolest moments right now.

It is unclear why there is no photo mode at this moment. However, the only way you can take a shot of those lovely landscapes is through the PS5 & PS4 controller’s dedicated screenshot button.

In the previous God of War game, the photo mode was accessed through the main menu. Players could then choose between a range of filters, settings, and more to tailor the image to their liking.

UPDATE: Modder Speclizer has discovered an unfinished Photo Mode in God of War Ragnarok. Although it is not yet available to players, the Photo Mode already seems like it will be far more in-depth than in GOW 2018.

When Is Photo Mode Coming to God of War Ragnarok?

Santa Monica Studios have stated in a Tweet that they are working hard to bring a photo mode to the game soon.

While they didn’t specify exactly what date and time the feature would be coming to God of War Ragnarok, they did say that they’d reveal more details closer to when they plan on releasing it.

Of course, for fans already playing the game, this isn’t a great solution. Unfortunately, your only recourse right now is to either way or do the best you can via screenshots.

What Is the Photo Mode in God of War Ragnarok?

The photo mode coming to God of War Ragnarok will likely function in the same way it did back in the 2018 God of War game.

It will allow players to toggle an extensive number of options and features to capture the most cinematic and visually stunning photos in-game as they can.
