God of War Specs Revealed for PC

The PlayStation classic is about to make a visually stunning debut on PC. See if your can handle the stride

Want to know if your PC will run Kratos' Nordic adventure? Then see the PC God of War Specs here. The game is now just over a month away from being released on PC, and has gained a new trailer showing the many technical improvements you can expect to experience with a suitably powerful PC.

God of War, which originally released on PS4 in 2018, will benefit from improvements in processing power since then, allowing for an unlocked frame rate and native 4K rendering. Those with Nvidia GPUs will also benefit from the company's DLSS capability, allowing you to get higher frame rates without a noticeable impact on image quality.

The upside here is that getting God of War to run at the same level as the PS4 version shouldn't be that difficult, with the recommended specs calling for a minimum GTX 1060 and quad-core processor. If you really want to speed things up, you'll need the hardware to manage it, with anything in the range of an RTX 3080 and octa-core processors required for 4K and above. You can check the full specification list below.
