Almost three years after the original release on PlayStation in 2018, God Of War will come to PC via Steam on January 14.
“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 announced. “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 on PC will include a “wide range of graphical presets.” Better resolution shadows and upgraded screen space reflections can be expected for those players with high end PC’s. DLSS will also be supported.
21:9 support for ultra-wide monitors, along with keyboard mapping and “robust controller support” allowing players to use their DualShock and DualSense gamepads.
The Steam page shows off the games system requirements:
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- Processor: Coming Soon
- Graphics: Coming Soon
- DirectX: Version 11
- Storage: 80 GB available space
The game will cost $50 or £40 and will include the following 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
God Of War has sold over 19.5 million copies since its release, and Sony are hoping that a PC release will open up the game to another gigantic potential audience.
