God of War is the next PlayStation exclusive coming to PC

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
PlayStation has just announced that God of War (2018) will be the next game from its exclusive slate to come to PC. The GOTY winner will be arriving on Steam and the Epic Games Store in January, 2022.

The news was announced in a PlayStation Blog post. Studio Santa Monica's epic return to the Got of War franchise is now being ported to PC, with a release date of January 14th, 2022. In some fantastic news for players on those platforms, this version of the game will be highly adaptable and a "high-performance version of the game." The studio is targeting a native 4K resolution with unlocked frame rates, as well as the ability for the player to tweak all the graphical settings to their chosen standard.

On RTX there will be full support for NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) to keep performance as high as possible. Low latency can be achieved with NVIDIA Reflex and 21:9 ultra-widescreen support is available. In addition, there are the normal PC options like full keyboard customisation, but also DualShock 4 and DualSense support. By preordering the game, you will get the customary token cosmetics: Death’s Vow armour sets for Kratos and Atreus, as well as the Exile’s Guardian, Buckler of the Forge, Shining Elven Soul, and the Dökkenshieldr shield skins.

Now, it doesn't seem like Nixxes has done the porting job, suggesting that Santa Monica Studio handled the work on its own. In addition, this means that God of War will finally be available to PC players just before the release of God of War: Ragnarok in 2022. This suggests that in the future Sony will be using PC ports to advertise upcoming sequels on PlayStation hardware — a move beneficial for Sony's coffers without ever moving exclusives away from PlayStation hardware in the immediate release window.

What do you think of this move? Will you be playing as the hench Kratos in all those pixels? Is this a good strategy? Port a comment into the section below, and we will see you in there!
