Now, God of War is available on PC. It’s a great game. It has had a great launch weekend on Steam with a healthy concurrent user count and lots of positive reviews.
According to SteamDB, January 16 saw the gruff father simulator reach 73,529 concurrent users. This is the highest number of players ever recorded by any Sony PC catalog. This isn’t bad for a game that’s technically approaching its fourth anniversary. As I write this, it has a 97% overwhelming positive Steam rating. Many people are praising the work of Santa Monica Studio and Jetpack Interactive on this port. Morgan Park, a staff writer for God of War, also praised the effort. It’s refreshing to see this after disappointing console-to-PC ports such as Ninja Gaiden and Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne in 2021.
This is a positive sign for future Sony ports. Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding, Days Gone, God of War, and Days Gone have all found good homes here, with different levels of success. Sony seems to be serious about bringing its library to the other side of the tech pond, with the newly-formed PlayStation PC publishing label and Uncharted 4 & Uncharted: Lost Legacy. While PC Gamer’s team is begging for Bloodborne, I will be waiting to see Spiderman make his way onto Steam.
