It’s 2022, but we’re playing the 2018 game? Incorrect. We’re taking a look at the acclaimed PC version of God of War from Sony Santa Monica and let you know if it’s worth buying.
Join hosts Marcus Stewart and Alex Stadnick as they take you on a tour of the first hour of Kratos and Atreus’ adventure. An important addition to this version of the game is the upgraded visual fidelity. God of War can achieve 4K visuals, but PC gamers will be able to take advantage of the unlocked frame rate experience to play one of the best games of the past few years in the smoothest way possible. PC fans should also be excited to hear that God of War supports ultrawide monitors.
Another key difference in this version of God of War is the freedom to choose the controller of your choice. Both DualSense and DualShock are here, sure, but as our gameplay shows, Microsoft fans can also have their fun and plug in an Xbox Series X/S controller (it has to be scientifically tested, okay?).
If this is your first entry into the world of Kratos, Atreus, and other gods, be sure to check out our review of one of the best games of 2018, where we say:
Kratos’ reinvention is a narrative hook, but it also parallels the evolution of the entire series; God of War once relied on bombast and bloodlust, and now it leaves room for strategy and nuance. It still has great action and plenty of jaw-dropping moments, but it backs them up with a new level of depth and maturity. God of War learns from the past while charting an exciting path for the future and becoming one of the best games of this generation.
