One of the best PlayStation games is about to make its debut on PC.
Developed by Sony Santa Monica, God of War has topped multiple ‘best of’ lists since launching back in 2018.
And with the sequel launching later this year, Sony is finally bringing its hit game to PC via Steam.
The PC version of God of War has a January 14 release date and a 4pm GMT launch time for fans living in the UK.
The upcoming release even contains a number of PC upgrades and exclusive features.
As part of Sony’s partnership with NVIDIA, God of War PC utilises Deep Learning Super Sampling technology.
“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.”
That’s on top of NVIDIA Reflex, which reduces latency for a more responsive experience.
“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).”
Elsewhere, the PC version of God of War features enhanced graphics and superior resolution/
“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.”
