God of War PC release date confirmed by Sony; will be available via Steam and the Epic Games Store
Rumours about God of War coming to PC have been around for the better part of a year. One report stated that it would be available on the platform with Bloodborne. A data miner also unearthed a Steam listing for God of War while digging through some code. While Bloodborne is still a distant dream, Sony has officially confirmed that God of War (2018) will be available on PC soon.
Like what we've seen in Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War (2018) will come with several PC-specific perks, such as unlocked framerates, support for 4K resolution, 21:9 widescreen support, even Nvidia DLSS integration. God of War (2018) will also become the first game in the franchise to support keyboard/mouse inputs. While that comes as a boon for many PC players, old-time fans of the title would still prefer a controller. Some of the supported controllers include DualShock 4, DualSense and more.
God of War (2018) is up for pre-order now on Steam and the Epic Games Store for US$49.99. No regional pricing seems to be in effect at the moment, so players in some countries might end up paying more than they usually do. Those who pre-order the game will get exclusive cosmetics that can be redeemed in-game. Lastly, God of War (2018) will be playable on PC on January 15, 2022.
Sony's decision to launch God of War (2018) on PC doesn't come as much of a surprise. The game has sold tremendously well on the PS4, and Sony only stands to make more from PC sales. It'll also generate hype for God of War: Ragnarok, which is expected to drop sometime in late 2022 or 2023. That will, in turn, drive more PS5 sales once Sony can keep up with the seemingly never-ending demand for the console.
