“We’re thrilled to announce that God of War (2018) will be coming to PC on January 14, 2022!” Sony Santa Monica Studio senior community manager Grace Orlady wrote. “All of us at Santa Monica Studio have been humbled by the immense amount of support and passions fans of the God of War series have shown in the latest chapter of Kratos’ story since its release. As of August 2021, 19.5MM copies for God of War on PlayStation 4 have been sold through and we can’t wait to share that experience with a whole new group of players on PC.”
The PC version of God of War promises a range of enhancements including “high fidelity graphics,” with support for 4K resolutions, ultrawide displays, unlocked framerates, and advanced settings including higher resolution shadows, “improved” screen space reflections, and support for GTAO and SSDO. Nvidia DLSS support will also be available at launch to help with framerates. Controllers and fully customizable mouse-and-keyboard setups will be supported.
The PC release will also come with some bonus digital 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
There are no system requirements yet, but the game itself is still a little ways off: God of War is available for pre-purchase now for $50/£40/€50, but won't release until January 14, 2022.
