  • Fixed an issue that caused leaks in memory allocation which could result in either decreased performance or a game client crash.

God of War is available now globally for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Developer Sony Santa Monica is currently working on a sequel for PS4/PS5, God of War Ragnarok, which is slated for a release later this year.

Down below you’ll find what we had to say about the PC port of God of War.

Playing it again for the God of War PC test, I was reminded of all the reasons behind such praise. Every single aspect of the game has been painstakingly handcrafted and polished to impressive results, from the introduction to various mechanics to the level design, enemy design, the combat as a whole, and, of course, the unique one-shot camera technique.

Unsurprisingly, the PC features make it even better, at least from a technical standpoint. Just like Final Fantasy VII Remake and Monster Hunter Rise before it, God of War PC is unshackled by the restraints and limitations of consoles. This means players can now enjoy the game at a high frame rate without any sacrifices to resolution or other settings, provided they have the horsepower to do so.
