God of War PC Port Reveals New Gameplay Footage Ahead of Launch

God of War took the gaming world by storm in 2018, garnering both critical and popular acclaim, and establishing itself as a pillar of the PlayStation 4 era. Praised for its story, characters, gameplay, as well as the cinematic approach it took to showing the players the journey of Kratos and Atreus, God of War had a lot going for it and by all accounts, this heavy hitter was a complete game.

There is no better way to expand its audience, and let more people experience all the wonders the game has to offer, than with a remarkably done port that ferries it from the world of consoles onto PC gaming. Between the port releasing on January 14th, and with God of War: Ragnarok on the horizon, this already iconic franchise is poised to enter an unprecedented peak in its popularity.

Ahead of the game's release on PC, footage of its performance shared by streamers and reviewers has started to appear across social media, with Twitter and YouTube being the most prevalent platforms. One thing that cannot be denied about God of War's PC port is that it represents the most visually impressive version of the 2018 game.

With the PC version boasting support for ultrawide screens, and God of War being presented as one continuous, unbroken shot, the journey of Kratos and Atreus through the Norse nine realms is an absolute visual delight that takes full advantage of the platform it was ported for. The most notable highlight of the port lies in its support of DLSS and FidelityFX Super Resolution, allowing this version of the game to push past the fidelity of the original release – all the while still maintaining a playable performance.

Based on the initial reaction to the port across the gaming community at large, and covered by God of War reviews, it is clear that the Sony Santa Monica team has done a remarkable job in bringing Kratos over to the PC world, and allocated the proper resources and development time to do so.

For those who have yet to experience all that the God of War franchise has to offer, this may be the best opportunity for them to do so, even if they lack the knowledge of events that occur in Kratos' original trilogy. For those who have played the original God of War release and have a desire to revisit it, this port easily justifies its worth.

God of War is available now on PS4 and releases for PC on January 14th.
