God Of War Is Heading To PC In January

2018’s God of War is com­ing to PC in Jan­u­ary, specif­i­cal­ly, on Jan­u­ary 14th through Steam. Sony released a state­ment about the game’s arrival to the PC.

Our pri­ma­ry goal when bring­ing God of War to PC was to high­light the excep­tion­al con­tent the team cre­at­ed and lever­age the pow­er­ful hard­ware that the plat­form offers to cre­ate a unique­ly breath­tak­ing and high-per­for­mance ver­sion of the game,” Sony San­ta Mon­i­ca’s Grace Orla­dy said. “You’ll be able to enjoy the full poten­tial of our cin­e­mat­ic, no-cut cam­era as it fol­lows Kratos and Atreus across the realms with the option of true 4K res­o­lu­tion, on sup­port­ed devices, and unlocked frame rates.”

God of War for PC includes a “wide range of graph­i­cal pre­sets.” Though with a strong enough PC can expect bet­ter res­o­lu­tion shad­ows and upgrad­ed screen space reflec­tions. Sup­port for ambi­ent occlu­sion through GTAO and SSDO is also available.

The game will also fea­ture “full inte­gra­tion” with Nvidi­a’s Deep Learn­ing Super Sam­pling (DLSS), as well as sup­port for Nvidia Reflex. God of War for PC will also sup­port 21:9 ultra-wide screens, along with key­board map­ping and “robust con­troller sup­port” for the Dual­Shock, DualSense, and others.

The full sys­tem require­ments for the game have not been announced, but the Steam page does say it will require 80 GB of space. Sony did­n’t spec­i­fy if the game will be sold through oth­er PC stores.

God of War for PC, which will cost $50, will include the extra content:

  • Death’s Vow Armor Sets for Kratos and Atreus
  • Exile’s Guardian Shield Skin
  • Buck­ler of the Forge Shield Skin
  • Shin­ing Elven Soul Shield Skin
  • Dökken­shiel­dr Shield Skin

Sony also men­tioned that God of War sold 19.5 mil­lion copies as of August 2021 on PS4 alone. Releas­ing the game on PC brings it to a much larg­er audi­ence, while mak­ing more mon­ey for Sony.

It’s not sur­pris­ing God of War is head­ing to PC, as it was leaked back in Sep­tem­ber. Sony also stat­ed a while back that it planned on bring­ing more first-par­ty titles to PC. The com­pa­ny pre­vi­ous­ly released Hori­zon: Zero Dawn and Days Gone for PC, while Unchart­ed games will be mak­ing their way to the plat­form in 2022.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
