God of War will finally join other PlayStation exclusives on PC on January 14, 2022, with plenty of graphical upgrades and additional content thrown in.
PlayStation announced today that Sony Santa Monica's 2018 blockbuster will be joining many of the PS Studio exclusive stable on PC with support for Nvidia's RTX cards, including 4K native render resolution and all the bells and whistles that come with it.
As well as just looking good on bigger screens, RTX cards will also employ DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) to make it look better at even smaller resolutions, or to improve performance without sacrificing screen real estate.
Additional graphical improvements range from "higher resolution shadows and improved screen space reflections to enhancements to the ambient occlusion pipeline with GTAO and SSDO" according to a blog post about the PC release.
Outside the prettification features, God of War will also support DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers on PC, though players who prefer keyboard and mouse will also be able to fully customize their key bindings.
The PC version of the game will include the following additional content added to the game after launch or in certain bundles.
- 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
God of War will launch on PC through Steam and the Epic Game Store on January 14, 2022 and is available for pre-ordering on both stores now.
