Announced in October and set for release on January 14, 2022, the PC version of the game is being developed by Canadian studio Jetpack Interactive, with supervision from original creator Santa Monica Studio.
Jetpack is a port house and support studio which has also worked on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare II, Dark Souls PC and various NBA Live games.

“You’ll be able to enjoy the full potential of our cinematic, no-cut camera as it follows Kratos and Atreus across the realms with the option of true 4k resolution, on supported devices, and unlocked framerates,” Grace Orlady, senior community manager at Santa Monica Studio, previously told the PlayStation Blog.
“Our PC version includes a wide range of graphical presets and options so you can fine-tune your visual experience based on your setup. From higher resolution shadows and improved screen space reflections to enhancements to the ambient occlusion pipeline with GTAO and SSDO – God of War on the PC can create striking visual quality unique to the platform.
“We’re also happy to announce that we will have full integration with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) available on RTX,” Orlady continued. “You won’t have to sacrifice high graphical settings and output resolutions for high performance in God of War.
“In addition to DLSS we will also have NVIDIA Reflex low latency technology available. Reflex delivers a more responsive experience allowing you to react quicker and hit harder combos.”
The game will offer customisable keyboard and mouse controls and will also support various pads including DualShock 4 and DualSense wireless controllers.
God of War PC buyers will gain access to the following digital content:
- Death’s Vow Armor Sets for Kratos and Atreus
- Exile’s Guardian Shield Skin
- Buckler of the Forge Shield Skin
- Shining Elven Soul Shield Skin
- Dökkenshieldr Shield Skin
God of War released for PS4 in April 2018 and had sold 19.5 million copies as of August 2021, according to Sony. Its sequel, God of War Ragnarök, will be released for PS4 and PS5 in 2022.
PlayStation Studios boss Hermen Hulst said in June that the platform holder was “still early on in our planning for PC” but that consoles would remain the priority for new releases.
PlayStation recently acquired Nixxes Software, which is best known for its work on the PC versions of Square Enix properties including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman and Thief, to help it bring its games to the platform.
