God of War for the PC is releasing tomorrow, January 14th, and it is going to look amazing. Early reviews are raving, with the game standing at 93% in Metacritic as of this writing. 

Check out a 15-minute playthrough of the game here:



As befitting a god

It’s been three years since God of War debuted on the PS4, and while it already looked good on that platform, the PC port brings an entirely new level of polish. The 4K graphics at 60 fps, the sharpened details of each character and environment, the ultrawide resolution, the enhanced lighting and shadows—everything looks simply stunning. This is the version of God of War you’ll want to play, and a great prelude for when God of War: Ragnarok releases some time in 2022.

Of course, making God of War look this good on the PC requires some serious hardware. Here are the recommended specs to run the game on 4K with 60fps: 

  • Graphics Card: GTX 3080 (10GB) or RX 6800XT (16GB), 
  • CPU: Intel Core i9 9900K (8 core 3.6Ghz) or AMD Ryzen 9 3950X (16 core 3.5Ghz)
  • RAM: 16GB  DDR
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Storage: 70 GB SSD

While the hardware is no joke, it’s well worth the experience. Here’s a side-by-side comparison between PS5 and PC versions of the game, care of Gamespot:



God of War is almost here

With the success of the port, here’s hoping that other PS exclusives, like the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West, will eventually make it to the PC as well.
God of War for PC comes out tomorrow, January 14, 2022. You can preload it now on Steam and it will unlock at 8 AM Pacific Time and 11 AM ET. Pick up a God of War Steam key for the best prices today.
