Sony Santa Monica has dropped a launch trailer to mark today’s release of 2018’s God of War on PC.
Of course, there’s a bunch of enhancements for this PC release. They include 21:9 ultra-widescreen support, true 4K resolution and unlocked framerates. There’s also loads of other fancy PC tech in there too, including improved screen space reflections, GTAO and SSDO. There’s also NVidia DLSS too to add to the acronym-tastic additions.
If you’re somehow new to the game, you’re in for a treat. Acting as a sort of quasi-reboot to the original 2000’s series, Kratos now lives in the realm of the Norse gods. He’s settled down with a new wife and child, Atreus until his wife passes away. Here’s where we join Kratos, as he sets out to lay his wife to rest.
“The way Norse mythology is woven into the game, as a backdrop for the more subtle God of War story of mass monster murder but as a vehicle for father/son bonding, is possibly my favourite part of God of War.” So said our original 2018 review of God of War by former editor Alice Bell, scoring it a 9.
Check out the video for yourself below. God of War launches on PC today for both Steam and the Epic Game Store. Sequel God of War Ragnarok is expected this year on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, but doesn’t have a confirmed PC release just yet.
