Gamers have enjoyed playing God of War since 2005. The franchise, based on ancient mythology, features 8 games with another in the works.
Since 2005, though, PC gamers have not been able to play on their systems. That will all change in January of 2022. Santa Monica Studios announced that the franchise will now be available on PC.
A press release from the company reads:
“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.”
The statement continues, “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.”
