About God of War

About this game

Santa Monica has brought The Slayer of Gods right back with a brand-new look, pantheon to demolish, and weapons to wield. Players will take control of Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta, on a quest to take his late wife's ashes to the highest peak in all of the realms with his son, Atreus.

God of War is 2019's Game of the Year, with a 93 score on Metacritic, and glowing reviews. Experience the resurrection of the story of a man whose past he wishes to leave behind and slaughter your way to your goal. With few success stories as great as this one, God of War is a title that won't disappoint.

A Cinematic Experience

You might as well get the popcorn for this one, as God of War works just as great as a movie. Take control of Kratos and travel throughout Midgard, Alfheim, Muspelheim, and numerous other Nordic realms to take his wife's ashes to the highest peak in all of the realms; yet, not everything is as it seems. Watch Kratos struggle with problems of parenthood and grow ever-fondly of both his new personality and his son.

Face Nordic Myths

We've accompanied Kratos in demolishing Greece; at his hands, mythical creatures have fallen, gods, and even the Sisters of Fate. Now on Midgard, Kratos must learn to slay brand-new creatures, including draugr, trolls, dragons, and even more gods. Wielding an axe built by the Huldra brothers — the Leviathan axe — unlock a slew of all-new combos and abilities that will facilitate your journey through the perilous lands of Scandinavia.

Great for Veterans and Newcomers Alike

Many of us grew up and observed Kratos on his brutal journeys slaying Olympians; that doesn't mean that you need to have accompanied him to enjoy this masterpiece. Experience God of War as your first title and grow fond of Kratos even without knowing his past, or do so and feel the pain and consequences of slaying an entire pantheon; God of War is an enjoyable title for all.

All-New PC Features

Originally a PlayStation 4 exclusive, God of War comes to PC with brand-new features to fit the console. Experience true 4k resolution, unlocked framerates, and tweak the graphics to your liking in a way that wasn't possible before; as you'll even be able to explore the Nordic pantheon with built-in ultra-wide support. Better yet, enjoy accessible graphics for lower-end computers and make use of NVIDIA's enhancing AI technology — NVIDIA DLSS — to witness the title, regardless of your rig.

Attack of the Fanboy

"Whether you're revisiting the frozen Norse realm or diving into Kratos and Atreus' journey for the first time, there's never been a better way to experience this epic tale."

AusGamers

95 / 100
"God of War remains an utterly brilliant action-adventure, where the former is as good as the latter. The bond between Kratos and Atreus is wonderfully handled, nuanced, funny,...

"God of War was a big deal when it hit PS4 in 2018, and it still is in 2022 when it hits the PC."

Played through this on PS4 back near release, and bought it again to play on PC. It looks more beautiful than ever, runs incredibly well, and takes advantage of the leap to PC. Definitely a must-buy!

Kill your way across a beautiful world and find yourself moved by seemless scenes and dialogue

Never has a game drawn me in so deeply and held my attention this strongly. Slay your way across Norse mythology and find yourself pleasantly surprised by the depth of the world and characters therein. The mechanics of this game are solid and so fun to play around with, combat starts of interesting and progresses to a fast paced combination of abilities that flow naturally and feel amazing to pull off. The game blends right into each cut-scene and the story they tell is incredible. Kratos and his son's character progression is so well done and you really feel for the characters. Nothing short of a masterpiece, that's all there is to it.

I played God of War on PS4 when it first released. I loved every minute of it then. Playing on PC with better graphics and a higher frame rate was an amazing experience and I am so happy I got to relive this game all over again. It stands as one of my favorite games of all time.

This has so many options for tweaking on PC that you could spend an hour at minimum before you get into the game proper (if you should choose to worry over the tweaking at all, that is). As it stands, the preset settings work beautifully and the presentation is just unbelievably gorgeous. The gameplay is smooth and flows marvelously. The range of challenge level options are fair and provide a good entry point for players of any skill level. The story is well thought out and well told. A highly recommended game.
