God of War (2018) is coming to PC

The Santa Monica Studio title launches on PC January 14, 2022.

We’re thrilled to announce that God of War (2018) will be coming to PC on January 14, 2022! 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. As of August 2021, 19.5MM copies for God of War on PlayStation 4 have been sold through and we can’t wait to share that experience with a whole new group of players on PC. 

God of War (2018) is coming to PC

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.

You’ll be able to enjoy the full potential of our cinematic, no-cut camera as it follows Kratos and Atreus across the realms with the option of true 4k resolution, on supported devices, and unlocked framerates.

Our PC version includes a wide range of graphical presets and options so you can fine-tune your visual experience based on your setup. From higher resolution shadows and improved screen space reflections to enhancements to the ambient occlusion pipeline with GTAO and SSDO – God of War on the PC can create striking visual quality unique to the platform.

We’re also happy to announce that we will have full integration with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) available on RTX. You won’t have to sacrifice high graphical settings and output resolutions for high performance in God of War.

In addition to DLSS we will also have NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology available. Reflex delivers a more responsive experience allowing you to react quicker and hit harder combos.

Alongside the graphic and performance improvements, we are also offering 21:9 ultra-widescreen support.

From the heart-pumping clashes in combat to the quiet moments where you can take in the otherworldly beauty of the Norse wilds across the Nine Realms, our panoramic widescreen support will make every moment feel more like a truly theatrical experience.

Our plans for God of War on PC include robust controller support and keyboard mapping customization.

For those of you who would prefer a controller, we will support DualShock 4 and DualSense wireless controllers in addition to a wide range of other gamepads.

For our keyboard and mouse players, you will be able to fully customize the bindings to create a control setup that works best for you.

Finally, the purchase of God of War on PC will also contain the following digital content:

  • Death’s Vow Armor Sets for Kratos and Atreus
  • Exile’s Guardian Shield Skin
  • Buckler of the Forge Shield Skin
  • Shining Elven Soul Shield Skin
  • Dökkenshieldr Shield Skin

That’s all we’ve got for now. We’ll have more details to share over the next few months as we get closer to release on January 14, 2022. 

We appreciate your continued support of God of War and hope that this version of the game will create a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience for returning and new God of War fans alike.


 If you would like to pre-purchase God of War for PC, it is now available on both Steam and Epic Games Store.

  • I think I might hold off of buying games on PS5 if the wait is only 2-3 years for other games, especially if the games come with dlss. With most multiplayer games being cross platform and discord coming to PS5 I can still play with my friends on PS while not having to pay for PS Plus. The funny thing is with cloud gaming even Xbox could potentially play Playstation games in the Xbox browser. Playstation needs to step up and offer something good to PS5 owners since as of today it’s not the best at anything (better services, better features, etc).

    Just my opinion.

    • Your right, the only thing it had (and its subjective) was the best games, now it doesnt have that anymore. I dont mind the PC port but I find it incredible they did a PC port before a proper PS5 port. I’m happy for PC gamers but as a PS5 only because a PC is too costly for me I feel they did dirty to me lol

    • @wasap1990
      I understand, I have a PC and I still somewhat feel like they are doing ps players dirty lol. You would think that they would port games stuck on ps1-3 or more free upgrades like xbox have been doing before porting games to pc. This gen feels weird for playstation players, less features than other consoles (no vrr, no folders, no 1440p, no quick resume equivalent, no support for ps1-3 games, etc) and with higher game price. The console is selling great, but their PR isn’t as good. To be honest PC, might be a better investment in the long run, your games don’t get stuck on old consoles due to lack of backwards compatibility, you don’t have to pay to play online and often the games are cheaper. Depending how they do things I might go full PC so I don’t get less just for buying a game early, I rather wait and play it in the best way possible.

      Sorry, I wrote too much 😅

    • Yes I still don’t have a PS5 but now this news made me lose the interest to get one, bad move.

  • At the end pc is the king of gaming. Every consoles exclusive can be play on pc. Consoles will lose the place holding all these years. Well done jim ryan. Worst marketing strategy in era. End of playstation begins.

  • Good I will rent every first party game and buy third party on pc and sell it what point have ps5 70$+ PS plus.

  • Awesome more people get to experience GoW

  • This is amazing news! I’m happy for PC players who will experience this great game for the first time! Now Sony please, could you give us Bloodborne PS5 60fps patch and PC port? I’m begging you..

    • Sony didn’t make Bloodborne, they just published it.

      Fromsoftware would need a pile of money and the inclination to port it. They likely have been given neither.

  • Get this off our page we don’t want to hear it,I actually can’t stand you anymore I’m dropping my support for your games new I’ll buy them preowned moving forward

  • So Xbox and PlayStation games on PC why the hell am I pay you extra for games and to play online? You suck hope you go broke

    • Yep they now expect us to pay more for the inferior version of a PlayStation studios game when we support.tjem with ps plus, hardware and mostly day 1 sales.

  • It would be nice if PS5 owners got all the bells and whistles also. I’d gladly pay 10 bucks for an upgrade. Think about your console owners first.

  • Thank you Sony for amazing 20+ years, now you gave me even more reasons to sell my PS5 and all the games, whats the reason to buy your console and games day 1 for 80$+ when we can play the game in better resolution with more fps on PC ? All games coming to PC 2-3 years after release, i will wait :) And even the games you sell on PC are cheaper then PS versions or just download the game from torrent :), good job. BTW if you think sales for PS5 will be same as PS4 you are wrong, just look at xbox sales when they released everything on PC, from 84 mil to not even showing sale figures (aprox 30mil before PC release, 10mil sold in next 4 year so 40mil total , will be even worse this gen). Bye

  • I didn’t think Sony had in it them to put this game on PC but here we are.

  • I warned yall I warned everyone that this new Weirdo leadership at Sony Jim Ryan and Herman Hulst Shawn Layden is destroying the Playstation platform because of greed Nintendo is just laughing at how stupid SIE really is we not letting this slide yall want war you got a war!

  • This is a 2018 PS4 game that costs $20 and has been on PS+ and Collection. With a PS5-exclusive sequel coming out they aren’t losing the series. More importantly it’s a great game and I know some people who have wanted to play it but don’t own the system.

  • So Sony is telling me to not buy PS5. I should consider my purchase at this time. PC community are going to meet God of War for the first time and they are getting Deluxe Edition version with bunch of upgrade, I mean best version and it’s 49.99 on where Steam takes 30% cut while Sony charging us buying Director’s Cut for the get native PS5 version.

    Worst PlayStation management i ever seen since the 1996. I wasn’t being negative even the beginning of the PS3 era. You are making move away your true fans.

  • PlayStation games never shouldn’t be on PC. You are giving the game community that didn’t help the BUILD PLAYSTATION

    TRAITORS

  • Such an awesome game, my favorite of last gen, will replay it soon. People that haven’t experienced it yet (and have a good PC) should buy it.

  • what about enhanced Graphics to PS5?

    • They don’t care about PS5, but they do hope you buy their game at 80€ on day one. Just for it to be rereleased on PC upgraded and coating only 50€. It’s laughable really.

  • Crazy. You know all the PC communities are going to do is put Kratos in a bright green mankini

  • My son decided last year that he wanted a PS5 instead of a PC…. we looked everywhere and finally got one for 800 here.

    Now my son came to me saying the games he likes are going to PC and he wants a PC instead, like all the streamers he watches.

    It was a terrible hassle to get this stupid machine in the first place…. it’s pretty disgraceful how Sony messes people about…saying games are exclusive one minute and then changing their minds the next.

    I can only get 500 now for a used PS5….. so it has been a total waste and my son is very upset with how things turned out.

    NEVER will I buy another Sony product.

  • Sony releases powerful PS5 console. Gives us a Patch for GoW. Neglects to give us a PS5 upgrade for free for the game to unlock further performance. Gives better version to PC gamers and gives PlayStation console gamers the finger.

    Smart move. your push for an all digital future is flawless. Soon you can leave the hardware industry and sell PlayStation Studios to Microsoft or Valve so you can go back to fantasizing over creating premium TV’s that aren’t relevant anymore.

    I don’t think PlayStation understands why its leading Xbox right now, which jerk from sony music did you bring in the front door that is making these decisions.

  • I second this. The Don Matrick of PlayStation needs to go. Haven’t seen decisions this bad since Phil Harrison lead up Sony Europe.

  • Thing is, 100 million is actually pretty pathetic when you consider the PS2 beat that in a smaller games industry.

    Consoles should be selling 300 million by now. But ridiculously high game prices and overpriced everything stops that from happening (along with the much greater profits it would generate).

  • To be fair they’ve hated European fans for ages, with 40% higher prices, rubbish deals and general ignoring. Then they started hating Japanese fans and studios during the PS4, concentrating heavily on boring NA studios exclusively.

    So it’s just making things a bit more universal. 😁

  • RIP PlayStation

  • Can we get a more substantial update for The PS5 version of God Of War. Kinda crazy how you guys are saying PC is the best place to pay for your own First Party Studios Game.

  • PS4 pro is my last Playstation console. PC here I come!

  • People my true Playstation fans and gamers this was the biggest middle finger ever we received 25 years SCE now SIE is so misguided and so blind deaf dumb Jim Ryan has unrealistic expectations to the point of not caring. Playstation gamers and PC gamers are two different breeds of gamers we are not the same there is a way to fix this you already know.

  • I’ve been screaming about this for years, but how awesome would The Last of us multi-player have been on pc with cross play? It was so fine tuned and brilliant it begged for a larger audience and community. It would have been legendary.

  • I knew I pick the right place for the spicy comments.

    This is a dope move for Sony. More for them better services & games for me. Win Win.

    Anyone crying about this being bad…🤡

  • Such a drama queen. How does one grow up to be so self-entitled?

  • 索尼你他娘的去死吧,毫无下限,战神承载了多少人的童年,你他娘的连底线也没有了我日你全家

  • 以后劳资再也不会买你的独占游戏了,不买数字版,也不买光盘,去你🐴的

  • I’m thrilled to announce, i never buy a playstation again. I has 1-4 ps and a psp a vita, but after all of the franchise s, go to pc i has no reason. Instead buy a better pc. Shame on you sony, everithing for money, now i will only buy nintendo for a consol at least the dont bring the new mari game to pc…

  • Be careful with this strategy. There are a lot of us who could just play all of these on PC and youre giving people as many existing players reasons to leave the platform/ecosystem as you are encouraging PC players to join the platform.

    At the very least, make sure you simultaneously release a PS5 update to bring as many of these features over as possible for parity. You really don’t want to make the console version look that much worse.

    • I was thinking. I think I read somewhere that Sony is selling the PS5 at a loss (I have no idea if that’s true). But I’m case it is…

      It would make sense for them wanting to remove the console completely and just have playstation studios bring in all the profits.

      It would suck because I’d lose my small platinum collection.

  • Jim Ryan Out!

  • Should see the absolute mockery the internet is making of PS gamers now. Sony has now created an adversarial environment that makes gamers on their platform feel absolutely terrible. They have forgotten what has made them successful.

  • To all the people crying here sell you PS5s and give to players who need them. But a PC and see how it goes for you. You need to wait for Ratchet, Spiderman, Horizon 2, GOW 2. Not to mention all the Story hype will be gone and soiled for you. If you’re unhappy sell your PS5.

  • Jesus! Why are Ryan and Hulst so eager to undermine his own platform?
    I hope they step out of PS soon.

  • Come find me I know the solution not on psn we gotta get rid of these parasites before we lose everything

  • I dont give a damn about the PC port, but releasing a better version that what we have on PS5 to PC without making a proper PS5 port clearly says your prioties are NOT with PS5/playstation customers. Thats the part that sucks. Now I am happy people over on PC are going to play this game. Lets just hope Sony does release a better version for the PS5.

  • Jim Ryan and Herman Hulst are scared of us hence why they do only pre taped shows because they know they messed with the wrong community.

  • True so true you know I’m already vocal on social media I meant every word I said.

  • This is completely and truly sickening.

    Playstation players pay $70 for your games. Playstation players pay $60 yearly to play online. Playstation players buy dozens of third party games on the platform, for which you get a cut of every single sale.

    For our loyalty and great financial interactions, you take the games that are the very identity of Playstation, that were advertised and sold with “Only On Playstation” as their tagline, and put them on PC for a cheaper price, without requiring a yearly subscription or a cut of any third party game sales. You give people who brag about how they will never buy a console the ammo to rub in our faces.

    You write blog posts bragging about how the PC version will be superior, while being sold for a cheaper price. And you don’t even make a native PS5 version of the game. This is exactly what happened with Horizon. You put the Complete Edition on PC for $50, while PS5 players languished without even a next gen patch. You ONLY released a next gen patch to hold people over when Forbidden West was delayed.

    I am sure that Uncharted 4 will be the exact same situation. Your pursuit of short term profits has undermined decades of brilliance and hard work. You are becoming like EA and Activision after their games became successful. You have gone way too far.

  • So are we PS5 players second class citizens now? Pc is getting true 4k, new graphical enhancements and we have old ugly ps4 port. Why do we have ps5 again?

  • Was going to get a PS5 this Christmas but with this news why I should do it?, o guess Sony now wants me to be a PC player lol

    Oh well gonna use the money on a Nintendo Oled.

  • So why Sony now hates their loyal Playstation userbase? this was supposed to get a “only on playstation” game.

  • Bro, you are that old and you can’t separate paragraphs?

  • Does someone want to buy my ps5? It’s only 2-3 moths in use. Lol.

  • Haha, okay, moving to PC as soon as I can afford then… Then I’ll have all the Xbox games, all the PC games, game pass and it seems like that I’ll have all the playstation games too with better graphics/performance (and in time I’ll probably be able to emulate Switch games as well). The last one or two years I was getting more and more disappointed in Sony day by day. And this is the day when the last drop has just fallen. Goodbye sony.

  • Ok, but what about 32:9 support? If you are going to advertise Ultrawide support you need to cover both 21:9 AND 32:9. Please don’t do it by halves.
