Dimapur, October 20 (EMN): Nearly four years after its release on the PlayStation 4 console, God of War (2018) is finally headed to PCs on January 14, 2022, Sony announced on Wednesday.

On the PlayStation Blog, the game’s developer Santa Monica Studio wrote, “We’re thrilled to announce that God of War (2018) will be coming to PC on January 14, 2022! 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.”

Sony says that the game will be available on both Steam and Epic Games Store on January 14.

Sony has been slowly bringing its console exclusives over to the Windows platform, a move that saw titles like Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and Uncharted 4 among others making their appearance on PCs.

The God of War series is one of Sony’s biggest titles and is widely considered to be the best videogame of all time. The fact that it is finally coming to PCs is a huge statement from the company and a treat for PC gamers alike.

The PC version of God of War promises enhancements like true 4k resolution, unlocked framerates, DLSS support, DualShock 4 and Dualsense wireless controller support, and advanced graphics settings.

The game will also include additional bonus digital content like:

  • 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

“You’ll be able to enjoy the full potential of our cinematic, no-cut camera as it follows Kratos and Atreus across the realms with the option of true 4k resolution, on supported devices, and unlocked framerates,” wrote Santa Monica Studio.

“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.”

God of War is now available for pre-purchase on both Steam and Epic Games Store.
