Porting the game to PC is great, but it’s also a pretty strategic decision for Sony. There’s a reason why God of War hasn’t been brought to PC until now, and the upcoming sequel God of War: Ragnarok probably has a lot to do with it. Sony knows exactly what it’s doing, and it’s this move should start 2022 off right for the God of War series.
It has now been confirmed that Santa Monica Studio’s God of War will be coming to PC after months of rumours and conjecture. Performance improvements, such as increased framerates and real 4K resolution, will be included in the PC version. It’s thrilling to see a new generation of gamers get a chance to play the critically acclaimed title, and God of War is well worth the wait.
Some PlayStation fans don’t like when Sony makes exclusives like Death Stranding, Horizon Zero Dawn, and God of War available on PC, but this is a great game that a lot of people will be excited to play. It makes sense financially as well. Because the cost of producing games has gone up, putting games on PC ultimately increases sales and helps Sony to fund future projects. Ultimately, it’s good to let more people play a great game by preserving it on more platforms, and God of War is one that PC gamers have been hoping for.
PlayStation is known for its many iconic, high-quality IPs like The Last of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Marvel’s Spider-Man. Out of all the PlayStation-exclusive franchises, God of War ranks near the top. The first God of War game came out in 2005, and since then it has only grown in prominence and popularity. The most recent installment, which takes Kratos to the Norse pantheon, won Game of the Year in 2018 and has sold over 19.5 million copies. Its sequel, Ragnarok, is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2022.
