We now live in a world where God of War is a PC game, and it does it very well.it had a great launch weekend steam, with a healthy number of concurrent players and lots of positive reviews.
According to the data, on January 16, the rough dad simulator gained 73,529 concurrent players steam database, the highest peak reached by any of Sony’s PC catalogs. Not bad for a game that’s technically approaching its fourth anniversary. It also has an impressive 97% overwhelming rating on Steam as I write this. Many reviews have praised Jetpack Interactive and Santa Monica Studio for the excellent work done on the port, with staff writer Morgan Park agreeing in his God of War review. After seeing some disappointing console-to-PC ports in 2021 (like Ninja Gaiden, Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake), that’s refreshing.
The excellent acclaim is a hopeful sign for a future Sony port. Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, Days Gone and God of War have all found good homes here, with varying degrees of success. With the recently launched PlayStation PC publishing label, and Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: Lost Legacy making their way to PC, it feels like Sony is seriously committed to bringing its library into the tech pond. While most of the PC Gamer team is begging for a Bloodborne transplant, I’ll be waiting here for Spider-Man to be a big hit on Steam someday.
