By Andrew Burnes on December 08, 2021 | Featured Stories GeForce RTX GPUs NVIDIA DLSS NVIDIA Reflex

2018’s God of War is one of the best action games ever made, with engrossing characters, an excellent story, a mesmerizing world to explore, and dazzling battles and sequences. On January 14th, the PC edition goes live, featuring enhanced graphics, exclusive PC features, and HDR. And if you play on a GeForce RTX GPU, desktop or laptop, you can enhance God of War with our AI-powered performance accelerating NVIDIA DLSS technology, and the latency-optimizing NVIDIA Reflex, which makes gameplay even more responsive.

Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Santa Monica Studio have unveiled a new PC features trailer with new footage and they’ve shared system requirements so you can get your system ready for God of War on PC.


God of War On PC, Featuring NVIDIA DLSS

NVIDIA DLSS is our groundbreaking AI-powered tech that accelerates performance on GeForce RTX GPUs. Using dedicated GPU Tensor Cores, DLSS taps into the power of a deep learning neural network to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images in your favorite games.

To date, NVIDIA DLSS has accelerated performance in over 140 games and apps, enabling GeForce RTX players to play with maxed out graphics and high resolutions. And when God of War launches on PC in January, you can use DLSS to boost your frame rate, allowing you to enjoy this amazing game with graphics maxed out.

NVIDIA Reflex Makes God of War On PC More Responsive

God of War is a fast action game with spectacular combos that are key to overcoming the game’s most difficult challenges. If your PC’s system latency is high, gameplay feels sluggish, and controls unresponsive. Combos are harder to chain, tricky jumps are mistimed, and the experience feels slow.

To ensure God of War is enjoyed on PC, Santa Monica Studio is incorporating NVIDIA Reflex to quickly and easily reduce system latency for GeForce 900 Series GPUs and newer, making gameplay snappy and responsive.

God of War On PC Boasts Enhanced Graphics and Extra Features

God of War on PC boasts numerous graphical and experiential enhancements to make full use of the PC’s capabilities.

Graphically, there are higher-resolution shadows, improved screen space reflections, enhanced Ground Truth Ambient Occlusion (GTAO) and Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO) effects, higher detail assets, and higher rendering resolutions, making the God of War world look even more spectacular. Plus, the frame rate is fully uncapped, for a smoother, faster presentation.

You can play in HDR on G-SYNC and G-SYNC ULTIMATE gaming monitors, TVs and displays, and in 21:9 panoramic ultra-widescreen, for the most immersive experience possible. 

God of War on PC includes robust controller support and keyboard mapping customization. But if you would prefer playing on a controller, Santa Monica Studio has included support for the PlayStation DUALSHOCK®4 and DUALSENSE® wireless controllers, in addition to a wide range of other gamepads. And there’ll be the full range of UI, system options, and other expected settings.
