'God Of War' Reveals PC System Requirements, Shows Off PC Features - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 8, 2021 @ 9:41 a.m. PST

It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created...

His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… And teach his son to do the same.

This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat; breathtaking scale; and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew. 

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

To help you figure out which setting will run best on your setup, Sony Santa Monica have put together five spec configurations.


Our collaboration with NVIDIA means that PC players with GEFORCE NVIDA RTX GPUs will be able to take full advantage of amazing features that will make the game feel even more sharp and responsive.

NVIDIA DLSS AI PERFORMANCE BOOST

Using NVIDIA’s revolutionary Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) software combined with their exceptional RTX GPUs, players will be able to experience God of War running at increased resolutions while retaining high frame rates. DLSS uses [MU1] machine learning to upscale the game resolution giving you amazing picture quality without the sacrifice to performance.

NVIDIA REFLEX

When facing your toughest opponents like Sigrun the Valkyrie Queen, how quickly you can react to her attacks can make all the difference between life and death in a fight. With NVIDIA Reflex, gameplay on God of War (2018) for PC will be responsive with reduced system latency across several generations of NVIDIA GeForce RTX and GTX GPUs (NVIDIA Reflex is supported on GTX 900 series or better).

AMD FIDELITYFX SUPER RESOLUTION

We are also happy to support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) so our players with AMD GPUs can take advantage of their visual enhancement technology!

ENHANCED GRAPHICS

Higher-resolution shadows, improved screen space reflections, enhanced Ground Truth Ambient Occlusion (GTAO) and Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), alongside highly detailed assets and rendering solutions means God of War on PC will be a beautiful, crisp visual experience.

From the frozen wastes of Helheim with its jagged, icy terrain and ghostly green skies to the lush Lake of Light in Alfheim whose shores are home to exotic plants and crystalline waters – the mythical and stunning environments of God of War will shine on PC as you journey through them on your quest.

The 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.

Alongside the graphic and performance improvements, the PC version will also offer 21:9 ultra-widescreen support.

Sony Santa Monica's plans for God of War on PC include robust controller support and keyboard mapping customization.

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

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

Currently available on PS4, God Of War is is coming to PC (Steam and Epic Game Store) on January 14, 2022.
