It's confirmed: one of the most widely acclaimed games from the PS4 era is finally coming to your PC of choice early next year - January 14th, to be precise. The announcement was done by Sony via a blog post, quickly followed by a YouTube trailer (which you can watch below). A Steam store page has been made available since then; the game will be available for $49, and includes all previously-released digital content.

God of War on PC will be more than a straight PC port, according to Sony. The game will feature support for 21:9 resolution, various controller types, and will support a full 4K renderer for machines that have the required processing and graphics grunt. Sony also promises "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." Beyond that, Sony Santa Monica has been working closely with NVIDIA, and will be integrating the company's DLSS and Reflex technologies into the game - DLSS by itself should make a 4K output resolution much easier to achieve.

Not sure what you mean.... Zero Dawn Horizon looks freaky amazing and I expect this game to look the same.
To be fair Horizon Zero Dawn had tons of issues at release on PC. It took months for them to make it playable for many PC players.
Almost forgot regarding GoW on PC...BOY!

So very keen for this, and glad I skipped an opportunity to borrow a PS4 to play it.

I reallllly hope they got 21:9 support right, and that the DLSS imp is solid.

Someone on the news team need to make up their mind, are games going to post on front page all the time or not, or is this just a selective story because one person likes the game?

I liked Dante's Inferno better. God of war is a good game though.

Just watched the 4k trailer and all I can say is

1. Good that it's coming to PC
2. Is it just me or does the lighting in this game look very flat & dull, especially when there are character model close ups...It really shows its PS4 origins.

Good to see console games coming to PC. Not sure though if DLSS is needed, the game isn't very demanding (if properly ported) for an RTX card.

Neither. This is on the news front because it's an acclaimed game, considered to be one of the best of its generation, and it's no longer exclusive - of relevance for TPU, PC gamers will be able to experience it. This was the thought process behind the post.

I played both and I think both are just as good. Combat wise, I feel GOW is better, while DI is better when it comes to story. That's my opinion.

Anyway, I am looking forward to this on PC.

Have to say, reading the comments on Sony's blog made me loose few braincells. Some people have incredible ego's and sense of self-importance.

Why on Earth would they, unless bribed.

This one is GOAT.
Axe is insane.
Game+ mode is awesome.

2. Is it just me or does the lighting in this game look very flat & dull, especially when there are character model close ups...It really shows its PS4 origins.
It is you.
Graphics is jaw dropping even on PS4.
