PlayStation's God of War is coming to PC

Sony's 2018 God of War is coming to PC at the start of 2022.

In a blog post, the firm's Santa Monica Studio revealed that the title was coming to both Steam and the Epic Games Store on January 14th of next year. This comes in the wake of God of War shifting 19.5 million units between its April 2018 launch and August 2021.

This version of the title comes with the option of running at 4K resolution, as well as the ability for players to unlock frame rates. Users will also be able to play with either controllers or mouse and keyboard. The PC edition of God of War additionally boasts Nvidia DLSS integration, as well as a variety of other graphics options.

"All of us at Santa Monica Studio have been humbled by the immense amount of support and passions fans of the God of War series have shown in the latest chapter of Kratos’ story since its release," Sony Santa Monica senior community manager Grace Orlady wrote.

"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."

This is part of a new strategy for Sony Interactive Entertainment where the PlayStation giant is bringing its exclusive titles to PC after a period of time. Both Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone have made the leap, with the firm's boss Jim Ryan saying that more are on the way.

PlayStation also recently bought PC porting specialist Nixxes earlier this year. Former SIE US boss Shawn Layden has said that he doubts first-party games will come to both PlayStation and PC on the same day.
