Three years after the game’s original release on PlayStation, Santa Monica Studio has finally announced the release date for the PC edition of God of War: January 2022.
The new version, available on both Steam and the Epic Games Store, offers better overall graphics with support for 4K resolution and unlocked frame rates, as well as both NVIDIA’s DLSS and Reflex technologies. The game now runs on 21: 9 ultrawide screens with full compatibility with PlayStation’s DualShock 4 and the new DualSense controllers in addition to your typical mouse and keyboard setup, the latter of which also receive custom mapping options. As expected, Santa Monica Studio has also added bonus content for release, including an Exiles Guardian Shield Skin, Buckler of the Forge Shield Skin, Shining Elven Soul Shield Skin, Dökkenshieldr Shield Skin, and the Death Vow Armor Set for both Kratos and Atreus.
“By August 2021, 19.5 million copies of God of War were sold on PlayStation 4 and we can’t wait to share this experience with a whole new group of gamers on PC,” said the Sony announcement. “Our main goal in bringing God of War to PC was to highlight the exceptional content the team created and leverage the platform’s powerful hardware to create a uniquely stunning and powerful version of the game.”
For fans of the franchise, God of War will be released on January 14, 2022 for $ 50 on PC.
Elsewhere in the gaming space, Halo’s co-creator, Marcus Lehto, has joined EA to start a new studio.
