Sony has just released God of War on PC and its first experimental FOV mod has gone online. Like most similar mods, it uses CheatEngine to allow PC gamers to use their own field of view values.
However, this mod also affects cutscenes, which leads to unpleasant results. That’s why I marked this FOV project as “experimental”. While you can improve your gaming experience, you will encounter numerous graphical bugs and glitches during cutscenes.
