2018' God of War is one of the PS4's most iconic exclusives and it will soon be accessible to more gamers. PlayStation announced today that the title is headed to Steam in January and released a new trailer for the announcement:


Enter the Norse realm
His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… and teach his son to do the same.

Grasp a second chance
Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

Journey to a dark, elemental world of fearsome creatures
From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains and caves of pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters and gods.

Engage in visceral, physical combat
With an over the shoulder camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War™ mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of the God of War series while presenting a vision of conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

This version of God of War will, as expected, come with some PC-enhanced features as follows:

  • High Fidelity Graphics
Striking visuals enhanced on PC. Enjoy true 4K resolution, on supported devices, [MU1] with unlocked framerates for peak performance. Dial in your settings via a wide range of graphical presets and options including higher resolution shadows, improved screen space reflections, the addition of GTAO and SSDO, and much more.​
  • NVIDIA DLSS and Reflex Support
Quality meets performance. Harness the AI power of NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images on select Nvidia GPUs. Utilize NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology allowing you to react quicker and hit harder combos with the responsive gameplay you crave on GeForce GPUs.​

  • Controls Customization
Play your way. With support for the DUALSHOCK 4 and DUALSENSE wireless controllers, a wide range of other gamepads, and fully customizable bindings for mouse and keyboard, you have the power to fine-tune every action to match your playstyle.​

  • Ultra-wide Support
Immerse yourself like never before. Journey through the Norse realms taking in breathtaking vistas in panoramic widescreen. With 21:9 ultra-widescreen support, God of War presents a cinema quality experience that further expands the original seamless theatrical vision.​

In addition to DualShock 4 and DualSense wireless controllers support, keyboard and mouse players will be able to fully customize the bindings for their personalized setup.

God of War on PC will also come with 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
God of War will launch on Steam on January 14, 2022 and is available to pre-order for £39.99.

I wonder what's holding back Bloodborne? :unsure:
Well, if the rumors are to believed, they're waiting on the release of a remastered version, and then they'd probably give it a couple years of exclusivity on PS5 before porting it to PC. Then again, those rumors have been near-constant for the last five years or so.

Woah, this is big news. Not quite "sell my PS5" big, but still not something I ever expected. If Sony ends up porting all their exclusives to PC, I wonder how long it'll be until Nintendo finally follows suit.

I wouldn't get my hopes up. Nintendo always did its own thing, and increasingly with time. They've also been top sellers of hardware for a while now too and they don't have a horse in the race in the PC market like Sony and Microsoft do.

True, but more revenue is more revenue regardless, and if both of their major competitors are doing it, what harm is there? They could mimic Sony and keep games exclusive to their hardware for two years or so, then port them to PC. Besides, Nintendo consoles are always the fastest out of the gate to be emulated at full speed on PC.
