Excellent PC port for a masterpiece like God of War (2018). It's better than many PC versions of multiplataform games by developers who always released on PC. Truly marvellous work by Jetback Interactive.

Below are a few links with port analysis and performance tests, there's also an interesting article on PC gamer where they run the game smoothly with only integrated graphics.

As explained  in a previous news article, our proxy server has been down for a week. Things should go back to normal over the weekend but I'm not sure davton will add the downloadable version of this one.

this seems cool, but these ports in a way seem more in the line of Righting a wrong with low effort on the PC front (port quality aside), going on how I had a lot of fun playing this on the release window... coming on almost 4 YEARS ago.

People are thirsting for Ragnarok details to play it in the upcoming months, and only now opening the access to the franchise to PC players.

It shouldn't be like this. PC is relegated to second class citizenship for Sony, and they really shoud clarify their stance if they weally want to thrive on the PC community.

Sorry to hear that. Have played it for about 5-6 hours on Saturday and it ran fine, no crash so far. Though that's PC gaming in a nutshell - even console gaming to a certain extent, experiences can be vastly different.

Try checking the file integrity and see if that works, if that doesn't work, you can search the Steam forums to see if anyone had the same issue and was able to find a solution. Lastly, you can try unistalling and re-installing the game, sometimes that works. I know it sucks to have to download the whole game again, but God of War is around 30-40 GB, so it shouldn't take long to complete.

If all that fails, the developers have a customer support link in the Steam forums, it's on the FAQ pinned thread, if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure they would help and maybe fix something if it's a technical issue with the game. The best of luck to you.

While I understand and even share your sentiment for the most part, I see it as a bonus and not Sony's main focus. Think of it like an important side quest when compared to the main storyline, which is essential. I feel PlayStation VR falls in the same category, it's not the main focus for Sony, just a bonus - no matter how important it is.

I'm just happy I can experience the game. I honestly don't care about not playing games in their launch window - let's say till 3 months from release. Same for movies and TV shows. As long as they are great, I will enjoy them a lot either today, tomorrow or next year.

FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is a tactic used and abused by companies to psychologically manipulate and exploit people. That's why consumerism is such a big problem in the world, people are almost brain-washed to consume non-stop without even thinking if they need and/or want what they're buying. Which lead to humanity slowly killing the world for profits.

How many of us have bought so many things we never even used or used very little, to the point that it wasn't worth buying? I bought Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition back in 2020, played for a few hours - till you reach the camp - and haven't touched it ever since. I do plan to play it start to finish, though until then, that money could have been used for something else that I would have used already.

Sony most likely will never release it's 1st-party exclusives day 1 on PC. Which is fine, my only wish is that they start to make the gap between console and PC versions shorter, like 1 year after the console's release - 1.5-2 years if there's an expansion 6-12 months down the line.


PS. I'm looking forward to God of War: Ragnarok in 1-3 years.

I did all these things, thanks. It is laziness of these people. And mouse cursor? Why is it floating? This is not a fluid mouse cursor. It is a shitty port:) Only patch can fix this, or not, thats it
Like I said, had issuess like this long long time ago.  Days Gone works perfectly, Valhalla, Metro Exodus, Horizon, RE Village workin fine

Absolutely. Sorry to hear this. Last alternative - outside of playing it on a PS4 or PS5 - is refunding the game in the store you bought it, either Steam or the Epic Games Store, and buying and trying the other store's version and see if it works.

I don't know how different the versions are, but I know that when the people from Cheat Engine make trainers and other tables, they have to make separate ones for each version most of the time.

Because each version works a little differently, maybe when one doesn't work, another will. Long shot, but worth trying if you don't mind the hassle and losing some features another store may have over the other.

I once had a game I spent months/weeks trying to make it work and when I was almost ready to give up, I was finally able to make it work. Way back in the early 2000's.

Almost the same happened with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, though it worked fine, there was a mission that bugged out and I tried for 2 weeks, but just didn't work. Then years later I was talking with my girlfriend at the time about it and she convinced me to try again. BAM!!! Worked instantly. Same PC, same everything. Hell if i know what happened.

On the other hand, ReCore on the Microsoft Store, I tried many times across the years and still haven't been able to make it work. Will try when I install Windows 11, but if it doesn't work, I'm just not gonna bother anymore.

PC gaming is epic when it works correctly, but when it doesn't, it can be really shitty. Sometimes it's just a little configuration or Windows issue that gets in the way and you beat your head against the wall trying to figure out why it doesn't work and how to fix it. Sometimes you get lucky and other times you just have to keep trying through trial and error - until your patience runs out.

Still absolutely love PC gaming and wouldn't trade it for any console gaming. Pros far outweight the cons and all that for me.

What's up?
  • Melmoth

    Melmoth In many ways it gave me a Last of Us vibe. Well written, strong voice actors and presentation, but the gameplay didn't hit the spot for me. I can still understand why so many people like those games (1 Hour ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth the vista by running it in 21:9 aspect ration (even though i have a 16:9 tv), which gives more picture information on both sides and worked well for the horizontal design of the level design. (1 Hour ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth Having the close over-the-shoulder camera works great for the seamless-camera style presentation they went for, but it's problematic for spacial awareness in larger fights. It did help a bit to widen. (1 Hour ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The mostly two-dimensional level design and not-as-sharp combat combined with a lot of polished animated auto-platforming and transitions made it good, just not a great gaming experience for me. (1 Hour ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth to play it. There's no doubt an enormous amount of work put into all the small details and craftmansship in all assets of the game. Very polished presentation. But coming straight off Sekiro, the game (1 Hour ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: I had a very similar experience. I got it for PC on release. I already had the game on PS4 for a few years, but still shrinkwrapped. So i thought the high quality PC release was a good way.. (1 Hour ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Anyway, just my stupid opinion and it's not meant to be an attack or hurt anyone, I just had a 8/10 experience. That is all. Though the game does have serious flaws. (20 Hours ago)
