- The game topped the Steam bestseller lists worldwide.
- In an interview, the authors admitted that Sony studios had been asking to release games on PC for a long time, and Sony finally agreed.
The PC version of God of War, one of the PlayStation 4’s biggest hits, was released yesterday. Just one day after publication, it can be said that the project’s PC debut was a success. At the time of writing, the game is the #1 bestseller on Steam worldwide.
Furthermore, God of War has avid users of Valve’s platform. The production already has more than 3,000 player reviews there and no less than 97% of them approve of the game, which the service describes as an “overwhelmingly positive” reception of the title. The quality of the conversion is particularly praised, both in terms of optimization and the very extensive configuration options.
Gamers will also be happy about the excellently developed support for ultra-widescreen monitors. Ultrawide resolutions are supported not only during gameplay but also during cutscenes.
The game also gets good activity scores. Yesterday, in the hottest moment of launch day, the PC God of War played on Steam 49,411 people at the same time. Single player records are usually set in the first weekend after debut, so this conversion has a good chance of beating them Horizon: Zero Dawn (56,000 concurrent players), making it Sony’s most popular game on Steam.
Finally, an interesting interview should be mentioned that the developers have given GameInformer magazine. They revealed that in it Many studios owned by the Japanese giant long asked their bosses to move games to the PC, until the company finally agreed. The company is still evaluating the PC market and aligning its strategy accordingly, so it’s hard to say if God of War: Ragnarok will come to PC sooner than it did with the previous installment in the series – if at all.
