The Santa Monica Studio title launches on PC January 14, 2022.
"Alongside the graphic and performance improvements, we are also offering 21:9 ultra-widescreen support." Ultra-wide support ! ! This is gonna look so beautiful!
Swing it (the Leviathan), like you mean it.
Uncharted and now GoW. TLOU 1 and 2 next 😊
What a clown, lol... Sell that PS5 to me, so you can enjoy playing all the games I'll be playing on it several years later, while I'm playing their sequels.
@ Rookie If you are such a diehard PS fan then you'd have already played the game when it was released over 3 years ago. If that's the case then why does it bother you that the game is being released on PC, over 3 years after launch and when the console generation has already ended. Obvious troll.
@rookiemonster This little Xbox troll thinks he can pull a fast one on us to make playstation gamers look bad.. Dude just stfu.... I'm primarily a PlayStation gamer myself with a gaming pc on the side and personally, I'm totally cool with Sony releasing their exclusives a couple years or so down the line to pc gamers. More can enjoy them, plus gets Sony extra cash for future game development.
“so you can enjoy playing all the games I'll be playing on it several years later, while I'm playing their sequels.“ True but PC players will be playing the better version of your timed console exclusives. Let that sink in.
Jin_sakai The better version of our last gen game. Let that sink in. Wasnt rookiemonster one of the biggest xbox fanboys on this site?
GeForce leak goin' strong.
Finally. Thank you Sony!
Gutted in 2021 both ps5 and xbox series S/X don't support 21.9 😔
@Aphelion82 Since the aspect ratio is wider you literally see more of the world around you. More of the game is rendered on screen. Similar to when DVD movies shifted from Full Screen to Wide Screen back in the day because Wide Screen(16:9) showed more picture.
@Aphelion82. 21:9 provides a wider,.more cinematic view of what you normally get from the standard 16:9. I'll leave you a link providing some info and some screenshots. I personally game moved on to a 32:9 ratio from 21:9, which i freaking love. https://bit.ly/3aWroKg
Great more gamers will get to play it. And in the long run more gets will become fan of the series. I do wonder if Sony will charge full price or $39.99 solideagle I think we may see that in 2023. Sony could be releasing some of their games 18-24 months after initial release (could be earlier or later just depends)
you are correct... also you are best waifu... team red forever.
Sony first party titles are becoming the best looking PC games available. Long after the console releases, but hey, PC exclusive gamers get to experience them too now. And considering the quality of the first party titles, I can see a fair amount of PC gamers deciding that they won't want to wait years, and picking up a playstation for this reason.
Ultra widescreen monitors have even higher response times than 4k high refresh screens. You don't go by what's on the box.. look @ reviews. Not everyone likes them. For FPS & quicker paced games smaller 24 or 27" screens with high pixel density and fast pixel response with high refresh are best.
Love the 21:9 support. 3440x1440 has been the sweet spot for my PC running a gtx 1080 for several yrs now. I'm patiently waiting for the 4080 to release, but It'll probably be scalped anyway
Told yall it was the next pc port
This game is juggernaut: "As of August 2021, 19.5MM copies for God of War on PlayStation 4 have been sold"
A quick search online found a few way-dated articles from 2012-2013 about GOW sales - 3 was the highest like around 5.2 million. Nearly 20 mil is absolutely insane
That's crazy... At this point they are looking for additional avenues for sales. And that attach rate on PS4 is wild.
You know the huge potential God of War, Horizon Zero Down, Days Gone and many more great games have to be portable with Steam Deck? I can't wait for many more games like Halo, Gears, Forza, Gran Turismo etc., keep them coming!
Sure, but PS5 doesn't even have that option.
It leaked 2 months ago.
It's no longer a PlayStation exclusive and in fact the best experience (by far) will be on PC.
"And anotha one".
I wonder if they are going to release Ragnarok in March 2022...This will generate many new fans who could potentially buy Ragnarok day 1
I could be wrong but I don't think they will put it so close to Horizon (February) and Gran Turismo 7 (early March).
Not in March. I say summer or fall
It’s either releasing in the Summer or Fall of 2022 or being delayed to Spring 2023. The fact that every single mainline GOW game except Ghost of Sparta has released in March or April leads me to believe it will be 2023. And putting God of War , GT7, and Horizon so close together won’t happen.
Or people will quit buying PS consoles just like what supposedly happened when XB started putting all their games on PC. Why buy PS or XB? I can get everything on PC! /s
Next up Gran Turismo
Nope. I believe the next one will be MLB The Show. In fact I think that will be the first one that goes day and date.
Maybe the only one. They still aren't going day and date. I highly doubt it unless they announce horizon is or maybe God of War ragnarok. Shawn layden said he was there when playstation made the decision to go to PC and it was to draw in customers to buy a playstation that maybe never tried it before.
Yeah Sport which will be like five years old by that time.
I'm personally curious about their criteria for PC releases. My thinking is that they're putting titles on PC that aren't big sellers and/or huge games in a series where you'll want to jump on the sequel/prequel(s) by investing in PlayStation hardware. So far, the latter seems to be the case. But if they do decide to release games that didn't meet sales targets on Playstation hardware, I would be upset. Not at the matter of releasing on PC, but at the thought that they needlessly gutted a great studio like Japan Studio.
This has nothing to do with PC gamers buying a PS5, especially now that there is less reason to do so. Sony wants money and doesn't give a damn about PS users. "If you want PS5 updates, buy the game again."
Sony gets its money after console version sales decline. Thats it. You can get gow for cheap during sales on ps4.
I disagree with both of you. What are you basing this on? Every game going to PC from a PlayStation Studio either has sequels in the works or you cannot experience the entire series without a PlayStation (yet?). It may will be the case that you are correct, and I will update my position when we see more conclusively what they're doing. The difference is I'm being empirical and you're going on gut feeling. If you're going to throw something like that out there, you should at least try to give better evidence for your position.
"This has nothing to do with PC gamers buying a PS5" Really? The amount of times I hear any fanboi, Fanboi-ing any system, always posts..." But its been out for a few years already" So.... Play Dos Games.. emulators, and don't by games day one... (Disclaimer- Thats generally me) Its funny that old games matter it seems , but dont... everyones out for the latest GPU's to play old games I guess... FFS. Its a great thing what's Sonys doing.. more people get to play those great games, But lets be real, the idea that they dont want to wait to play the latest game, that's good, thats not released Day 1on PC? Maybe they wont pay for inflated GPU's and upkeep, But play those games , release day, most likely for less.. Theres always an opinion... Whether either of us are right, there will always be another saying we are wrong..... But most probably would agree with you... or would They?
I told you guys..PC is the future.
..since 30 years already lel ^^
It was the future. It's present now.
It's 3 years behind
If you don't mind waiting for a few years on games like these then yeah you absolutely right.
I don't mind, it's not like there isn't literally thousands of other games to choose from until then.
And eventually the gap will get smaller. Just imagine how much more can be made if they release a new title on PC 3-6 months after the release of the PlayStation version. Win-Win for Sony and PC gamers.
He wants to play old GOW while PS5 gets Ragnarok.
I don't mind. There's plenty of games to play in the meantime
It's definitely not the present with these insane GPU prices. Hopefully by the time the game comes out we can actually buy one that comfortably runs the game without having to spend a fortune.
Far from the future as development cost are minimized by optimizing for a uniform console. This would explain why all these PC ports are awful, as there are far too many setups to take into account. These companies are using the lack of PC Exclusives to grab additional money from their archive of otherwise dead IP. Why not? If there's extra money to be had, get it. Though I can't see Sony releasing Exclusives day and date with the PS5.
There are more exclusives on PC than on consoles what are you talking about? Also since when is God of War a "dead" IP? Is Horizon a dead IP also?
What makes an IP dead is its lack of making profit on it's home platform. Case in point, you'll have to pay retail for God of War on PC, where as it is free for any person purchasing a PS5. Same with Horizon. When you start seeing exclusives arrive on day one WITH the PS consoles then there's some room to make proclamations towards the future. Sony's not so insecure in their own ability to print money on their own platforms to relinquish/neuter themselves by relying on another one. What is smarter is releasing said IP on another platform that doesn't have the quality of their exclusives for a cost. This is why MS will never be able to ably compete with the likes of Sony or Nintendo. Both companies understand how to revalue old/dead IP for profit. Since you asked....😁
Yep if Sony releases their exclusives on PC it is in the future, in this case it was four years into the future.
It's literally been the future for the past 30 years lol
Is it? You realise they do this right before the sequel comes out so people will want it right. It's simple business
Not my future.
I've been a PlayStation fan since 1997 but the brand is dead to me now. No reason to own one.
Hope Ghost of Tsushima and Bloodborne are next.
In a few years.
Not hope, but it will be.
If the GeforceNow leak is anything to go by, and it's been right so far, Ghost of Tsushima will be.
I knew it! They often port pc version when playstation is getting the sequel. This way it doesnt bother playstation players and pc players get some single player gems and sony use it to advertise the ps5 whem they give pc the first part.
Doing it once before with Horizon does not equal often.
Why would it bother "Playstation people"? You know how silly that really sounds. If someone is truly bothered if a game releases on PS5 and PC on the same day, they really need to prioritize their life and what's important.
@thesoftware why you getting downvoted? It's true lol
Never thought I'd see the day when AAA PS exclusives start releasing on PC. Times have changed. Games are expensive to make these days. Having said that, I'm good with this approach. It allows more people to experience these fantastic franchises several years after their initial release on console. Sales likely dry up after the first couple of years and this is way to revitalize profits and ultimately helps the devs (or Sony) to continue developing top-tier games for release on console first. Of course, that only works if they keep them day one console exclusive so fingers crossed this approach stays that way. Still, this is a
