The Japanese tech giant has now clarified the PC specs that are needed to enjoy God of War, arguably one of the best games of the previous console generation that is now finally making its way to PC. An Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 is needed to play the game at 4K60, but the requirements for lower resolutions and settings are fairly moderate.

Sony's previously PlayStation-exclusive blockbuster franchise God of War is finally making its debut on the PC platform on January 14, 2022. While this is exciting news for every pure-bred PC gamer, some may wonder which type of hardware is required to play one of the most graphically impressive games of the past console generation.

Sony Santa Monica has now shed light on this question by releasing the official system requirements for the PC version of God of War. Gamers should at the very least have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 with 4GB of VRAM and an Intel Core i5 2500K or AMD Ryzen 3 1200 at their disposal. In combination with 8GB of RAM, these specs should allow PC players to enjoy God of War at 720p and 30 fps with minimum settings.

Mid-range gamers who aim to play God of War at 1080p and 60 fps need an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB) and an Intel Core i7 4770K or AMD Ryzen 7 2700, while high-end PC enthusiasts with 4K60 and ultra settings in mind are required to have an RTX 3080 and an Intel Core i9 9900K or AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. The requirements for the two other recommended and performance presets in the PC version of God of War can be found in the table embedded below.
