We’re excited to announce that God of War (2018) is coming to PC on January 14, 2022! All of us at Santa Monica Studio have been humbled by the immense support and passions that fans of the God of War series have shown in the final chapter in Kratos’ story since its release. In August 2021, 19.5MM copies of God of War for PlayStation 4 were sold and we can’t wait to share this experience with a whole new group of PC gamers.
Our main focus in bringing God of War to PC was to showcase the exceptional content created by the team and take advantage of the powerful hardware offered by the platform to create a jaw-dropping, high-performance version of the game. .
You’ll be able to experience the full potential of our cutout-free cinematic camera as it tracks Kratos and Atreus through the realms with the option of true 4k resolution, on supported devices, and unlocked frame rates.
Our PC version includes a wide range of presets and graphics options so you can fine-tune your viewing experience to suit your setup. From higher resolution shadows and enhanced screen space reflections to ambient occlusion pipeline improvements with GTAO and SSDO – God of War on PC can create a stunning visual quality unique to the platform.
We’re also happy to announce that we’ll have full integration with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) available on RTX. You won’t have to sacrifice high graphics settings and high output resolutions for high performance in God of War.
In addition to DLSS, we will also have NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology. Reflex offers a more responsive experience allowing you to react faster and hit harder combos.
Along with the graphics and performance improvements, we also offer support for 21: 9 ultra-wide screens.
From thrilling clashes in combat to quiet moments where you can admire the otherworldly beauty of Nordic nature across the Nine Realms, our widescreen panoramic stand will make every moment a truly theatrical experience.
Our plans for God of War on PC include robust controller support and keyboard mapping customization.
For those of you who would prefer a controller, we will be supporting DualShock 4 and DualSense wireless controllers in addition to a wide range of other gamepads.
For our keyboard and mouse players, you will be able to fully customize the bindings to create a control setup that works best for you.
Finally, the purchase of God of War on PC will also contain the following digital content:
- Death Wish armor sets for Kratos and Atreus
- Exile Guardian Shield Skin
- Shield aspect of the Forge Shield
- Shiny Elven Soul Shield Skin
- Dökkenshieldr Shield Appearance
That’s all we have for now. We’ll have more details to share over the next few months as we approach release on January 14, 2022.
We appreciate your continued support for God of War and hope this version of the game creates a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience for returning fans and new fans of God of War.
