According to Nvidia information, these enhancements include high-resolution shadows, improved screen space reflections, enhanced Ground Truth Ambient Occlusion, and Screen Space Directional Occlusion effects, higher detail assets, and higher rendering resolutions.
God of War can also be played in HDR on G-SYNC and G-SYNC ULTIMATE gaming monitors, displays that offer 21:9 aspect ratio, and TVs for an immersive experience, Nvidia said. As for input methods, the game supports the PlayStation DualShock 4 and DualSense wireless controllers, apart from a wide range of other gamepads and keyboard mapping customisation.
Santa Monica Studio changed the gaming industry with the action-adventure title when it released in 2018. God of War even went on to lift the coveted Game of the Year trophy. While other companies were trying to bank on the battle royale trend, Santa Monica Studio delivered a single-player experience on an epic scale. For many gamers, the epic narrative served as a gateway to Norse mythology, the monsters and breath-taking locations full of lore.
Having been exclusive to consoles for years, God of War is finally coming to PCs, allowing an entirely new demographic of gamers to enjoy the exploits of the iconic, bald-headed demigod, Kratos.
