God of War PC Release Date Announced
We didn’t think we’d ever see the day, but it’s finally here. Sony has announced that its premiere PlayStation-exclusive game, God of War, is headed to PC. The award-winning 2018 masterpiece is the reason many, including myself, bought the PS4. To date, it continues to be one of the best story-driven games on the console and its successor, the PS5.
The game will be released on both Steam and the Epic Games Store on January 14, 2022 and is available to pre-purchase today for $49.99.
The Steam page doesn’t yet mention all of the system requirements for the game, with processor and GPU details missing at the time of writing. We do know that it’ll be taking a whopping 80GB of space.
In a post published on the official PlayStation blog, developer Sony Santa Monica revealed that the PC version has been souped up with unlocked frame rates, NVIDIA DLSS, and ultra-widescreen 21:9 support in addition to several graphics and performance improvements.
Our PC version includes a wide range of graphical presets and options so you can fine-tune your visual experience based on your setup. From higher resolution shadows and improved screen space reflections to enhancements to the ambient occlusion pipeline with GTAO and SSDO – God of War on the PC can create striking visual quality unique to the platform.
This growing trend of PlayStation exclusives making the jump to PC makes us hopeful for the future of smash hits like FromSoftware’s Bloodborne or even the new Demon’s Souls remake. A console seller like God of War can making its way to PC shows that Sony is willing to cut the tether for even the most prolific titles a couple of years following their release.
