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

90 / 100
"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."

Somewhere over the rainbow Way up high There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby Somewhere over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true Someday I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemon drops Away above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly Birds fly over the rainbow Why then, oh, why can't I? Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly Birds fly over the rainbow Why then, oh, why can't I? If happy little bluebirds fly Beyond the rainbow Why, oh why can't I?

I have seen so many videos about this game and I have always loved to have it. Luckily you had the right offer to get it!

Get. It.

If you held out on the original PS4 release to play it on the PC/PS5, you made the wisest decision in gaming history. God of War simply sings at 60fps, and the PC port is rock-solid with ample graphical settings and features unique to the platform. As for the game itself, it is arguably the best game Sony has put out in a very long time

Great on Steam Deck + all the rest
Verified purchase
It is a remarkable game and rich in story, and all of the other adjectives you can read in other reviews (and probably already read). It plays really well on Deck (if you don't choose Ultra). The controllers are very comfortable and the game runs without stutters (fixed 30fps and not a single drop so far). If you want to play on Ultra, better get a better PC though.

Satisfying. Brutal. Fun.

Very satisfying. A little choppy on the Steam Deck, but tinkering with the settings fixed things up.

After many games with angry Kratos, we finally see Kratos matures as he is now a stoic, albeit stern father. The game has great story, presentation, and combat. Exploration feels nice too with nooks and crannies to find. Overall a great game with a lot of depth.

Being a fan of the previous games, this one is a welcome addition to the series. Really loved the high octane action of the previous ones, and as usual, God of War didn't disappoint. Highly recommend this game!
