God of War PC finally launches today with a raft of new features and enhancements. Overall, the team at Sony Santa Monica have done an amazing job in porting the beloved PlayStation reboot from PS4 to PC, its current OpenCritic score sitting at a whopping 94.
Even if you don’t have a top range PC gaming setup, you can still get a taste of what this version of the game offers. Check out two and half minutes of God of War gameplay in ultrawide.
Here’s what Stefan had to say in our God of War PC review:
God of War is a great port of one of the PlayStation 4’s biggest games. PC gamers have all of the graphics options they could really want, and the game’s origins mean that even fairly modest gaming PCs can push for high frame rates and resolutions. If you’ve not already played the game on PlayStation, this is a great chance to catch up ahead of Ragnarok’s highly anticipated release.
God of War Ragnarok
Naturally, the PC release has amplified the hype surrounding God of War’s sequel. Set three years after the previous title, God of War Ragnarok will find Atreus entering his troublesome teenage years – by troublesome we mean “He’s Loki” – with the duo traversing all nine realms of Norse mythology. On the way they are set to meet previous ally Freya, the chunky thicc boy Thor, both of which seem to want to have a word with Kratos for killing their sons.
The stage is set for an epic conclusion to the story and one that is arriving earlier than previously planned, despite delays due to the Covid pandemic. Due to the long development time of each game it was decided to conclude the saga in two games rather than three, else fans may have to wait 15 years for the story to conclude and the dev team have been working on the same story for even longer.
There’s no confirmed release date for God of War Ragnarok just yet though we’d guess it will arrive towards the end of 2022.
