God of War Ragnarok Rumored to Launch on PC Soon

Sony is expected to expand its roster of PlayStation exclusive titles available on PC with the addition of "God of War: Ragnarök," the sequel to the critically acclaimed "God of War" (2018). Following the success of the game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, where it sold over 15 million units by November 2023, leaks suggest that an announcement for the PC port is imminent. Industry insider Billbil-kun has indicated that the reveal could occur this month, although there has been no confirmation whether it will be during a rumored PlayStation showcase or via an official PlayStation blog post.

The PC version is anticipated to release in May 2024, with additional content such as the Valhalla DLC, which was recently introduced to the console versions. While the exact release date has yet to be disclosed, Sony's strategy appears to involve maintaining at least a year-long exclusivity period on its console platform before bringing titles to PC. The PC port is expected to support advanced visual features and technologies like Nvidia DLSS, AMD FSR, and Intel XeSS, which enhance the gaming experience with improved graphics and performance.

There is no official word yet on whether the game will include ray tracing effects or who is developing the port. Sony's gradual strategy of porting its first-party games to PC has been a significant move for the company, potentially providing a financial boost and broadening the audience for its acclaimed gaming franchises. "God of War: Ragnarök" would follow the path of other popular titles like "Ghost of Tsushima," which also made the jump to PC.
