It’s not hyperbole to say that God of War on the PlayStation 4 is one of the best games for the platform, with the action-adventure being an all-timer for the genre. Which makes its PC debut something of a milestone release. So then, how does the previously PlayStation exclusive release stack up in this revamped PC version?

Let this snippet from our review answer that question.
The short answer, extremely favourable. The long answer, let's get our tech nerd on.

For the majority of this review we played God of War on PC with an RTX 3080 Ti graphics card and were able to maintain a solid 60-fps in 4K with graphics settings set to ‘Ultra’. Of course an RTX 3080 Ti isn’t exactly what you’d call ‘standard’ in the PC-space, with the added bonus of NVIDIA DLSS rendering you can still hit 4K 60fps with a more mainstream RTX offering. Running off of an SSD God of War runs smooth too, with no stuttering or other glitches that might break immersion.

This is important to point out because God of War’s third-person action is presented in a single-take. A term one usually associates with films, it’s that thing where the camera doesn’t cut-away. In God of War you get a single shot for the entirety of the 30-hour or so campaign. As a cinematic device it adds incredible scale to the world and characters. Where outside of the unobtrusive HUD, opening up menus, upgrading items, or checking out skill trees, there’s virtually no break in the flow.

The epic God of War is set to make its PC debut on January 14, 2022, bringing the Playstation exclusive to a new audience. And it's doing so in style, with improved visuals and support for both NVIDIA DLSS rendering and NVIDIA Reflex for low latency performance. Alongside a new 4K 60fps trailer we've also got the hardware requirements outlined by developer Santa Monic Studio.

But first, the trailer. A nice little reminder of just how great it looks.

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.

High Fidelity Graphics
Striking visuals enhanced on PC. Enjoy true 4K resolution, on supported devices, with unlocked framerates for peak performance. Dial in your settings via a wide range of graphical presets and options including higher resolution shadows, improved screen space reflections, the addition of GTAO and SSDO, and much more.

NVIDIA DLSS and Reflex Support
Quality meets performance. Harness the AI power of NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images on select Nvidia GPUs. Utilize NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology allowing you to react quicker and hit harder combos with the responsive gameplay you crave on GeForce GPUs.

Controls Customisation
Play your way. With support for the DUALSHOCK 4 and DUALSENSE wireless controllers, a wide range of other gamepads, and fully customizable bindings for mouse and keyboard, you have the power to fine-tune every action to match your playstyle.

For the tech nerds out there the improved 4K assets will be paired with more detailed shadows, improved reflections, Ground Truth Ambient Occlusion (GTAO), and Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO). Basically stuff that will make God of War look incredible on PC. In addition to DLSS, the PC version will also support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR).

The addition of NVIDIA Reflex is very cool as it's a tech that reduces system latency for smooth input -- something God of War's action will definitely benefit from. And on that note here are the hardware requirements.

As per above a GeForce GTX 1060 is recommended for PS4-like 1080p 30fps performance (with detail settings set to 'Original'), with a GeForce RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT required for 4K 60fps 'Ultra' action.
