The most recent, and Game of the Year at the Video Game Awards winning, entry in the God of War series will be making its way to PC early next year. This is the latest in a list of PlayStation games set to make the jump, with the most recent title before this being Uncharted. This news was announced via a PlayStation Blog, touting the successes of the game and revealing it will arrive on PC on January 14, 2022.
In the post, Sr. Community Manager of Santa Monica Studio, Grace Orlady states:
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.
Grace also lists a range of options that will be present in the game, stating:
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.
In recent interviews, Playstation Studio Head Hermen Hulst stated that the company was committed to port games to PC, though they would arrive on PlayStation first. While we have seen PlayStation do this before, they have doubled efforts over the last year.
God of War: Ragnarok, the sequel to this title, recently received its first trailer during a State of Play event. Though it was not given a release date it is currently slated for some point in 2022 for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. There are no plans for a PC release of the game yet, but judging by this current trend I think it will likely release on the platform if it sells well. It has also been stated Ragnarok will end the Norse Saga.
Another walkout for Activision Blizzard.
Lookin' good Spider-Man.
