God of War is the Next PlayStation Exclusive to Come to PC

The latest in Sony's push to bring PlayStation games to PC.

God of War (2018) is coming to PC, and it’s coming fairly soon.

Sony announced Kratos’ Norse reboot/learning how to be a good dad simulator will leave its PlayStation 4 exclusivity and head to Steam and Epic Game Store on January 14, where it will run you $49.99. According to a post about the port on the PlayStation Blog, the port will look a bit better than its PS4 counterpart, assuming your PC’s build can support it, and will offer up to 21:9 ultra-widescreen support.

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.

We’re also happy to announce that we will have full integration with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) available on RTX. You won’t have to sacrifice high graphical settings and output resolutions for high performance in God of War.

In addition to DLSS we will also have NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology available. Reflex delivers a more responsive experience allowing you to react quicker and hit harder combos.

God of War will support both DualShock 4 and DualSense on PC, but mouse and keyboard users will still be able to play and create custom bindings and controller setups.

Also, anyone who buys the PC version will be granted access to the following 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

Check out the announcement trailer below:

God of War is just one of the handful of games Sony is bringing to PC as it branches out beyond the PlayStation brand, but it’s definitely one of the heavier hitters the company has been willing to put on a different platform.

Will this lead to the sequel, God of War: Ragnarokbeing ported to PC in the future? Hopefully, it won’t follow in its predecessor’s footsteps and take four years to end up on a different platform, as that would mean we could expect to see Kratos and Atreus’ story concluded on PC by, at earliest, 2026.
