With its sequel, Ragnarok, lurking in the shadows, players will be able to experience the action all over again in stunning HD – but this time, it’ll be on PC instead of PlayStation.

Excited to jump into the fray once more? Here’s everything you need to know about God of War’s PC port, including the release date and what to expect.

While the game itself remains the same, PC players will be able to experience the story in 4K glory with some serious graphics upgrades.

The main changes coming into the PC version are:

  • High-fidelity graphics – 4K graphics will be available for those who can use them, as well as several different graphics settings.
  • NVIDIA DLSS & Reflex Support – Enhanced performance allows you to strike down your foes in style.
  • Control customization – Set your own keybinds or, alternatively, play with a controller.
  • Ultra-wide support – With 21:9 ultra-widescreen support, players will be able to truly immerse themselves in the snow-covered God of War story.
