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. 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.

Our primary goal when bringing God of War to PC was to highlight the exceptional content the team created and leverage the powerful hardware that the platform offers to create a uniquely breathtaking and high-performance version of the game.

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.

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.

Alongside the graphic and performance improvements, we are also offering 21:9 ultra-widescreen support.

From the heart-pumping clashes in combat to the quiet moments where you can take in the otherworldly beauty of the Norse wilds across the Nine Realms, our panoramic widescreen support will make every moment feel more like 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 support 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’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

That’s all we’ve got for now. We’ll have more details to share over the next few months as we get closer to release on January 14, 2022.

We appreciate your continued support of God of War and hope that this version of the game will create a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience for returning and new God of War fans alike.

If you would like to pre-purchase God of War for PC, it is now available on both Steam and Epic Game Store.


Condolences to the salty fanboys.


A superb game. My second best game of the PlayStation 4/Xbox One generation as Sony is getting closer and closer to their exclusives being day one on PC.


Neat. I need to give this game another chance, I played a bit of it and then fell off, but it was fun. More people getting a chance to play it is only a good thing.

I love how they need to pad their announcements of PC games with sales numbers to throw the fanboys a bone lol, this is good for gaming and I don’t doubt it will end up being day 1 PC releases in future.

I really enjoyed it, but the lack of enemy variety wore thin after a short while.

Oh this is gonna be fun to watch the meltdowns from the losers who say Xbox has no exclusives with their games on pc :joy:

Yeah, true but this is basically every game. As long as the combat/gameplay is excellent which it is in God of War, this is a minor complaint especially when you have excellent major boss fights. I loved God of War and this game made me actually care about the franchise again since I haven’t played it since a few hours in God of War 2 on PS2.

same .


I think thats the only real complaint I had about the game was just fighting reskinned trolls about 10 times. Other than that it was a great game and probably the most visually impressive Sony game of last gen.


When can we start the Sony doomposting?

lmfaooooo this is so real. :joy: :joy:


Xbox announces PC exclusives day and date with cross-buy, cross-save, cross-play and games pass:

Why should I ever buy an Xbox?, Xbox have no idea what they are doing, Xbox takes another L AND has no exclusives.

PlayStation announces a PC port of an exclusive 32 months after launch:

Very smart business move from Sony, Sony are killing it on PC


Who cares if it’s on PC it’s only to help sell PS5s to PC gamers because GoW2 is out next year and after 4 years suddenly they would love a console!!! Smart move Sony! /s


It’s so dumb. Console and PC are different audiences. This just means more people get the chance to play a cool game. It doesn’t cannibalize the success of the PS5 at all.


Anyone with a brain knows this, though I can see people start to shift to PC gaming now that Sony and Xbox games going to PC.

Sony is incredibly smart, no one else thought of leveraging the PC market with market leading exclusives like them.
More than relying on consoles sales, they’re now just making their brand bigger and more known!!!
