Sony Santa Monica, the developer of God of War, has revealed the game’s specifications ahead of its PC release, while Nvidia has announced that Horizon: Zero Dawn’s PC edition is also getting a new feature today.
Sony Santa Monica has released the PC specifications for God of War ahead of the game’s Steam launch on January 14, 2022. According to the specifications listed below, to run the game at its minimum requirements of 720p resolution at 30FPS, players must have an Nvidia GTX 960 or AMD R9 290X, as well as an Intel i5 processor (or equivalent) and 8GB of RAM.
The game will require approximately 70GB of free space, which can be installed on a standard hard drive; however, it is recommended that players run the game via a solid-state drive (SSD), even at low-performance settings.
Players with Ultra graphics settings will be able to play the game in 4K at 60 frames per second, though the hardware required to do so is significantly more powerful. PC players will need an Nvidia RTX 3080 (10GB) or AMD RX 6080 XT (16 GB) graphics card, as well as an i9-9900k (8 core 3.6 GHz) processor (or equivalent) and 16 GB of RAM, to play the game in Ultra.
In addition to the game’s specifications, Nvidia GeForce has released a trailer highlighting a slew of new features coming to God of War with its PC release. NVIDIA DLSS support for improved performance, NVIDIA Reflex support for more responsive gameplay, higher resolution shadows, improved screen-space reflections, and other features are included.
In addition to announcing new features for God of War’s upcoming PC release, Nvidia has revealed that Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC edition will now include DLSS support. According to Nvidia, players who use an RTX graphics card should see up to a 50% increase in accelerated performance in the game.
Horizon Zero Dawn joins some other titles set to receive DLSS support this month, including Ratloop Games’ Lemnis Gate, RocketWerkz’s Icarus, and Deep Silver’s new sci-fi action-adventure game, Chorus.
Horizon Zero Dawn was released on Steam for the first time on August 7. Check out this article detailing our full Horizon Zero Dawn PC analysis for more on Guerilla’s transition from console to PC.
