Sony PlayStation has technically brought God of War to PC already
Kratos and his son Atreus have finally made their way into the PC gaming scene thanks to Sony’s PlayStation Now service. Although Windows has fully integrated the Xbox Game Pass in the upcoming release of Windows 11 and also adding support for Windows 10, PS Now is something PC gamers shouldn’t sleep on especially now that a huge triple-A title like God of War has returned to its library.
God of War’s soft reboot was released back in 2018, and it is undoubtedly one of the most generation-defining video games ever. Because of the magnitude this game has brought upon the gaming scene, you would think that Santa Monica Studio’s massively popular title would get the Horizon Zero Dawn treatment. Sad to say, God of War isn’t available on Steam or any online gaming service platform. However, as long as players are subscribed to PS Now, you can play the game on demand.
For those who are unfamiliar, PS Now works similarly to the Xbox Game Pass. Users who are subscribed to the service will have access to hundreds of PlayStation exclusive titles. This month’s subscription service freebies included Red Dead Redemption 2, Nioh 2, and a whole lot of others.
As long as players have an existing PSN account or sign up for an account, then you will be eligible to subscribe to the service. Keep in mind that you will be needing a compatible controller, specifically a DualShock 4, in order to play any of the games because PS Now doesn’t support Keyboard and Mouse controls.
We honestly don’t know if we’ll ever get a proper PC port for God of War. On the bright side, at least PC players who don’t own a PS4 now have access to one of the greatest games of all time.
