God of War PC Release Countdown: Release time & System Requirements

Santa Monica Studios' God of War is coming to PC. With the announcement God of War's sequel, Ragnarock, on the way this year - this move makes sense. Here's when you can play it.

Latest - Available today

God of War is finally available on PC. You can play it for yourself as of today. Have a look at the new trailer below.

Hopefully, we will see Ragnarock come to PC too.

When does God of War come out on PC?

God of War is going to be available on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on January 14th, 2022.

Looking at a specific unlock time, it looks like you can start playing God of War on PC from the following times:

  • 10:00 PST - January 14th
  • 13:00 EST - January 14th
  • 16:00 GMT - January 14th

These times are unconfirmed, but keep an eye on your chosen digital storefront for more information. Both Steam and the Epic Games Store should see God of War unlocked at the same time.

Can you preload God of War on PC?

According to Santa Monica Studios, players who choose to purchase God of War via Steam should be able to start preloading the game at the following times:

  • 10:00 PST - January 12th
  • 13:00 EST - January 12th
  • 16:00 GMT - January 12th

You can see the announcement tweet below - at the moment, we're unsure as to whether this preloading period will apply to the Epic Games Store as well. It would be safe to assume it won't until otherwise stated.

God of War on PC is going to look great

God of War's PC release is going to be fantastic - if your PC can handle it. We're getting true 4K resolution with unlocked frame rates and a range of options to fine-tune the game's shadow, textures and more.

It's going to have Dualshock 4, DualSense, and Keyboard and Mouse support - so, if you still want to play with a controller, don't worry. The rest of the game should be pretty much identical to the game's PlayStation 4 release - however, we're sure there are a few modders out there waiting to explore what can be done with the game and its assets.
