Sony confirmed the release on the PS Blog, with Grace Orlady of Sony Santa Monica saying, “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.”
Orlady further on the game’s graphics, stating that it contains, “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.”
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
Previously God of War was included in a leak of Nvidia’s GeForce Now upcoming games leak database. Nvidia stated at the time that the information was “used only for internal tracking and testing. Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game.”
PlayStation has pledged to port more of its exclusives to PC and has even purchased a PC porting specialist to assist them in this endeavor. Sony’s current policy is to release titles as PlayStation exclusives before porting them to PC later.
Ragnarok, the sequel to God of War, will build not only on the first game’s story but also on its universe and warfare. It will also signal the end of the Norse saga in the series. Ragnarok was postponed until 2022, owing to a procedure that Kratos voice actor Christopher Judge underwent.
