Sony’s Santa Monica Studio has announced that 2018’s God of War will launch on PC in the first two weeks of next year.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the release will include the entirety of the PlayStation 4 entry of the series, and will support true 4K resolution and unlocked framerates. There’ll also be a range of graphical presets and options to allow you to tweak the game to your setup. We’re also promised higher resolution shadows and improved reflections. There’s also “enhancements to the ambient occlusion pipeline with GTAO and SSDO” if that takes your fancy.
There’s also a couple of PC-specific additions, with support for NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) on RTX cards. You can also enjoy NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology, allowing for a “more responsive experience”. Finally, the PC version will also support 21:9 ultra widescreen displays, if you’ve got an appropriate monitor. Naturally, there’s also “robust” controller support and mappable controls on keyboard. DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers are supported along with a “wide range of other gamepads.”
Finally, the PC version of God of War will also include a few pieces of bonus content. These include Death’s Vow Armor Sets for Kratos and Atreus and four Shield Skins. You can check out a trailer for the PC launch down below. While you’re at it, have a read of our original review here.
God of War lands on the PC via both Steam and the Epic Game Store on January 14, 2022.
