Last night, it was announced that 2018’s Game of the Year, God of War, is coming to PC on January 14, 2022.
PlayStation announced the news via their blog, “PlayStation Blog”.
The game follows the story of Kratos after the events of God of War 3. He is having settled down and as having had a new family with his new wife Faye and their son, Atreus. The story picks up after Faye has passed away, leaving behind Kratos and Atreus to fulfil her wish of having her ashes scattered from the highest peak. The journey across the many realms of Norse mythology to complete this task makes up the story of the game.
According to Grace Orlady, Sr. Community Manager at Santa Monica Studio, 19.5M copies of the game were sold on PlayStation 4.
The primary goal of the team when making the PC port was to highlight the exceptional content they created and use the powerful hardware of the PC platform to create a uniquely breathtaking and high-performance version of the game.
The game features a no-cut-camera mechanic which you can check its full potential in true 4k resolution on supported device and unlocked framerate.
