God of War – The Greek Demigod Unchained On PC As Well

The new God of War is available on PC as well, but the console release has been delayed a few days. Here’s what you should know and why it matters.(Spoiler: It finally comes out next week-ish)

The “who is the god of war in greek mythology” is a question that has been asked for many years. The answer to the question is, Kratos.

REVIEW – Kratos, the Spartan demigod warrior and God of War series’ anti-hero, returns, as ferocious as ever, but much older and the father of a small boy, Atreus. He departed the Greek nations since the plot is based on Norse mythology and takes the series in a new path. The improved PC version finally came this year, after a lengthy wait (almost four years), and to celebrate, we tested one of Sony’s finest games to date on it.

 

When I was born, my father was 56 years old. He was an elderly guy, a kind of antique hero of the 1956 Hungarian revolt against Soviet domination. He was usually grouchy, a guy of few words, and he was never happy with my actions.

Why am I telling you this at the start of a review of God of War? Because that is precisely what the major plot is about: an older, resentful Kratos and his young son go to the highest northern summit outside their territory to transport the ashes of Kratos’ partner and Atreus’ mother. The whole game has a western vibe to it, as if it were directed by an older Clint Eastwood: Unforgiven, with a more realistic, grounded tale and action and a bitter, older hero. Is it still reminiscent of the old God of War games? So, sooner or later, I’ll have to reveal the truth: no, not really. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Please bear with me, and I’ll tell you…

 

 

The sheer might and added talents of Kratos and PC

 

But first, let’s take a look at what’s new in the PC version before I dive into the game’s specifics (which PlayStation fans will already be aware with). If you’re still interested in the PS4 game, you may continue ahead to the next part.

When God of War was launched, it looked incredible for a PlayStation 4 game, and it looked even better when the PS5 update introduced 4K 60 fps support. This will, of course, be accessible on PC as well.

So far, Sony has provided the following PC-specific features:

  • Framerate docked
  • High-fidelity visuals have been “enhanced,” with higher resolution shadows, better screen area reflections, the inclusion of GTAO and SSDO, and “much more.”
  • Nvidia’s DLSS and Reflex technologies
  • DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers have built-in compatibility.
  • Support for a 21:9 aspect ratio

Sony Santa Monica has created five setups to assist you in determining which arrangement will work best for you. (To make the picture easier to read, click on it.)

PC Spec

Because of their collaboration with NVIDIA, PC gamers using GEFORCE NVIDA RTX GPUs may take use of technologies that make gaming even crisper and more responsive.

 

DLSS AI performance improvement from Nvidia

Gamers may play God of War at higher resolutions while sustaining framerates thanks to NVIDIA’s groundbreaking Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technologies and excellent RTX GPUs. DLSS scales up the game’s resolution using [MU1] machine learning, resulting in stunning picture quality without losing speed.

 

Nvidia Reflex is a game developed by Nvidia.

When you’re facing the toughest opponents, like Sigrun the Valkyrie Queen, how quickly you can react to her attacks can mean the difference between life and death in combat. Thanks to Nvidia Reflex is a game developed by Nvidia., the gameplay of God of War (2018) for PC is responsive with reduced system latency on multiple generations of NVIDIA GeForce RTX and GTX GPUs (Nvidia Reflex is a game developed by Nvidia. is supported on GTX 900 series or better).

 

Super-resolution AMD FIDELITYFX

The game also uses AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology, allowing players using AMD GPUs to benefit from improved visual resolution.

 

Graphics have been improved

God of War for PC will be a gorgeous, clear visual experience thanks to higher resolution shadows, better screen space reflections, upgraded Ground Truth Ambient Occlusion (GTAO) and Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), and more detailed tools and rendering solutions.

God of War’s mystical and magnificent locations will shine as you journey through them on PC, from the frigid wastelands of Helheim to the jagged icy terrain and eerie green sky of Alfheim, to the lush Lake of Light with its unique vegetation and sparkling waters.

The PC version comes with a variety of graphics presets and choices, allowing you to fine-tune the visual experience to your liking. God of War on PC can provide remarkable visual quality that is unrivaled on the platform, thanks to better resolution shadows and increased screen reflections, as well as GTAO and SSDO’s enhancements to the ambient occlusion process.

The PC version includes support for 21:9 ultra-wide screens in addition to improved visuals and performance.

Sony Santa Monica had big ideas for God of War on PC, including a lot of gamepad support and the ability to customize the keyboard mapping.

The game will support the DualShock 4 and DualSense wireless controllers, as well as a variety of alternative gamepads, for those who want to play with a controller.

You may completely change the bindings for keyboard and mouse players to establish control settings that best suit you.

Finally, the God of War PC edition comes with the following downloadable content:

  • Kratos and Atreus’ Death’s Vow armour sets
  • Skin for Exile’s Guardian Shield
  • Skin of the Buckler of the Forge Shield
  • Skin of the Shining Elven Soul Shield
  • Shield Skin Dökkenshieldr

Greetings in the Father’s Name

 

Perhaps the most compelling component of this new God of War is the plot, which was never very prominent in previous games. Yes, Kratos has always been a fascinating anti-hero with a terrible backstory. Kratos is the demigod son of Zeus and a mortal woman called Callisto, and was born in the Greek city-state of Sparta. For the most of his life, he remained oblivious of who his father was.

Hera, enraged with Zeus for fathering yet another scumbag kid, ordered Kratos’ murder on the day he was born, but the King of the Gods refused, allowing the boy to be reared by Callisto in Sparta. He was duped by Ares, the God of War, into killing his own family: his wife and kid, after becoming a Spartan warrior and serving the Gods.

Kratos was compelled to carry the ashes of his deceased family on his skin from that day forward. Kratos was transformed into The Ghost of Sparta, his skin as ‘pale as the moon’ due to the ashes that had covered him.

He vowed revenge on the Gods, and he slew each Greek deity in each game so far, constantly enraged.

The reason I’m recapping Kratos’ story is because he’s radically different in this game. He lost his rage; he is now “simply” an elderly guy who has just lost his wife and is parenting his son, Atreus. If you like this new Kratos and his kid, the game will be a letdown or a delight for you, since the tale revolves on them and their adventure across the frequently inhospitable realm of the North. Both Kratos and Atreus have a strong, engaging personality, and although they encounter a variety of characters along the way, they are all merely supporting characters on Kratos and his son’s adventure.

Yes, as you may have guessed, the relationship between the two main characters is quite similar to that of Joel and Ellie, the protagonists of The Last of Us. That isn’t necessarily a negative thing; they’re distinct enough that you won’t feel like the game’s story is plagiarized. Even yet, they’ll bicker and dispute beside the road all the time, exactly like Joel and Ellie, with Kratos being a cranky, gruff father and Atreus being a fiery young kid with his own strong personality.

The aforementioned supporting cast is also rather fascinating. You may have seen the young sorceress from the trailers, who will assist them along the way; there will also be two dwarf blacksmith brothers who will be manufacturing and improving the War Axe – Kratos’ sole weapon in the game – as well as various armors and a talking head of a Norse God. The game’s generally somber tone is lightened by the appearance of the last three characters. It isn’t always terribly humorous, but when the game’s comedy works, you’ll have a nice chuckle while driving.

The Kratos adversaries are likewise fascinating, but not as memorable as the ones in God of War III. One of them stands out: he has the appearance of a brawler from a Guy Ritchie film, and he is always bantering throughout the battles.

There are additional opponents (bosses) that you must battle throughout the game, such as a big dragon, but they either lack the same personality as the Greek gods or seem less heroic. I just re-played God of War III Remastered, and I had the latter sensation in particular.

Despite this, the game’s plot is remarkable, with a captivating pair of main characters and a few noteworthy secondary characters.

Puzzles and hack’n’slash

 

While the plot is comparable to The Last of Us, God of War’s gameplay is a blend of Dark Souls-style games, such as Bloodborne, and more traditional hack’n’slash third-person action RPGs. It feels less than stellar at first, as Kratos feels a little weak sauce on higher difficulty levels, and while it’s way too easy on the middle difficulty level (which is also a criticism of the game difficulty levels not being truly adjusted), it feels like a letdown when compared to the previous God of War games. The game’s epicness was also lost, owing to the fact that the camera was no longer fixed. It evolved into a more typical hack’n’slash game, yet as you gain more talents (and get a better understanding of the fighting system’s flaws), the battle becomes more enjoyable. Still, it doesn’t seem as grand as it did in the previous games.

Otherwise, using the War Axe against various adversaries is a lot of fun. It’s a lovely weapon (both in appearance and in how you utilize it), and it can also be used for close combat and throwing. The latter is crucial, particularly at higher degrees of difficulty. It’s really vital that battle takes on a “God of Axe Throwing” feel, particularly when there are a lot of foes or more challenging adversaries present.

 

The War Axe is also employed in the puzzle segments of the game. The puzzles are, without a doubt, the most irritating and dull aspects of the game. Either you must discover runes and open chests with three runes to find and strike with the axe each time, or you must find runes and open chests with three runes to find and hit with the axe each time. It’s a lot of repetition, and you’ll have to search for the runes and strike them quickly enough to unlock them. Some of those axe throwing puzzles are also necessary for advancement, and I must admit that I was lost on the first one since the game didn’t do a good job of describing the principles. It’s a pity, considering comparable Sony games like Uncharted have amazing puzzle sections, and I’m not sure how those in God of War are so badly messed up.

Another issue I have is that as the difficulty level increases, you begin to depend too much on Atreus’ bow skill, as you continue to roll and roll. Because the opponents are so lethal and quick, you’ll discover that your Terminator son (who can never die) will save your life in the end.

The larger adversaries (such as trolls) are more enjoyable to fight, particularly since there is always a strategy to apply to defeat them, and you can ride some of them to wipe out foes. It’s a shame that the troll riding moments are so brief.

God of War gameplay

RPG and transportation system

 

The early God of War games had some very rudimentary RPG aspects, such as the ability to upgrade weapons with red orbs and get new talents. The new skill system is comparable to the role-playing features used in many subsequent action-RPG games, as well as any subsequent Assassin’s Creed game. It gets the job done, and there are a variety of abilities that are both intriguing and not so exciting.

Maybe the version I was playing had some flaws, but certain talents didn’t appear to function either, but I didn’t mind because of how the fight worked. To be honest, there are so many talents and the adversaries are so swift and dangerous that you either use your War Axe or Atreus bow and axe throwing skill from away. Yes, Atreus with his unstoppable bow… That’s much too prevalent throughout the game…

God of War also has some small open-world aspects, including as the ability to move from portal to portal, such as returning to the blacksmith dwarves to strengthen your weapon or completing other mission objectives. You may also go on the pond on a little barge as Papa Kratos tells his son purposely foolish and simplistic tales. (Which are sometimes entertaining, but not always.) The level design, on the other hand, is quite linear, and adversaries are often gone when you return to previously explored areas. This kind of semi-open world level design works well in games like Bloodborne, where opponents reappear, but it’s odd and awkward here.

“Dad, you look fantastic!” (Atreus)

 

In terms of visuals, the game looks great — particularly when played on a PS4 Pro machine (like I did.) With some ancient scars, a much-suffered, weathered visage, but yet built like a warrior, Kratos himself looks especially good. Atreus or other significant NPCs likewise seem to be in fine shape. Scars may also be seen on Atreus’ face, and the witch who is assisting us has a wonderful, well-animated face. The creatures, however, look fantastic, with some outstanding visuals on a gigantic serpent.

The same can be said about the surroundings, which has caverns, little woods, and mountain pathways. They do, however, seem to be a little dull in comparison to the gigantic levels of previous God of War games, and it doesn’t help that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which was set in a same territory, was visually more thrilling and better looking.

This is particularly true of the water visuals (when rowing in the little boat), which were superb in Hellblade but appear as nasty as Hell in God of War – as if it were some water design from the PS2 era. There are also some hazy textures here and there, which from a Sony exclusive game like God of War on PS4 Pro seems weird.

On the other side, both Kratos’ and his foes’ animation (particularly battle animation) is rather good.

The sound design is “decent,” the monster noises are rather terrifying, but the music section plainly lacks the grandiose mood of previous GoW games.

Take part in a fantastic adventure – now available on PC.

 

So God of War is a wonderful game, and you’ll like it much more after you’ve mastered the fighting system, which is otherwise competent (though initially poor). The tale of Kratos and his kid is fantastic, and I enjoyed meeting the many NPCs along the way. It’s a pity that the RPG and growth system is very utilitarian and over-complicated with talents, many of which you’re unlikely to use even if you learn them, and none of which are really creative.

The northern universe, creatures, adventures, and quests are all very interesting, but the semi-open world did not appeal to me.

So, God of War has issues, and the PC system requirements are high, but it’s still one of the finest games of the previous four years – even for people who don’t own a PlayStation machine.

Pro:

+ Solid fighting system, with some fantastic techniques and talents + Great plot with old Kratos and son Overall, the Midgard presentation and visuals are excellent.

Against:

– The RPG system is very complex, with many unnecessary talents – The semi-open world structure and travel aren’t excellent – Some graphical features (water) are pretty ugly

God of War is a fantastic game, particularly after you get beyond the gripes of the very well-made fighting system (once Kratos is high enough in level) and the gripping tale with Kratos and his kid, as well as the intriguing NPCs. Still, the RPG system is functional and a little overcrowded with talents – most of which you will never use – as well as a little dull, with just two weapons for Kratos (the War Axe) and his kid (the bow). When you’re traveling the country, the Norse cosmology, creatures, and world presentation are fantastic, but the semi-open world concept is a little cumbersome, particularly when you have to backtrack. So it’s a little “Unforgiven” that a God of War game that was supposed to be epic, like practically all the previous entries in the series, is “simply” great (8.1/10) in our opinion, particularly after all the hype. Let’s hope the next episode, which has already been announced, is better polished, so Kratos and his kid can return in another fantastic game in the series.
