The PC version of God of War is just over a week away from release, and some new upgraded gameplay footage has been shown by Nvidia.
The God of War series has recently had a resurgence and will be even more popular, especially with a new installment coming out at some point in the future. One of the most beloved hack-and-slash titles on PlayStation, the series was given a blockbuster reboot in 2018, completely changing the overall style and look of the game as well as breathe new life into protagonist Kratos. Since then gamers have had news of the game being ported to PC and with that version set to be released soon, some upgraded gameplay footage was shown at CES 2022 by Nvidia.
In a YouTube video uploaded to the Nvidia GeForce channel, some footage of the upcoming God of War gave gamers an overview of what the game would look like on PC. The 34-second clip demonstrates Nvidia’s own graphics technology, as well as introduces some gameplay scenes of the game itself. According to a report from DSO Gaming, God of War PC will support DUALSHOCK 4 and DualSense wireless controllers, which will be good news for gamers who prefer to play with a controller rather than a mouse and keyboard, especially is for third person games.
Most notably, the footage also aims to show off Nvidia’s Reflex Low Latency technology with a side-by-side comparison in the trailer. In the clip, when the Reflex Low Latency technology is turned off, Kratos is unable to avoid the attack of the monster he is fighting. When this Nvidia technology is enabled, Kratos can dodge in time, essentially showing that gamers will be able to move and time their dodges better. According to the video description, the footage was shot on Nvidia 30-series GPUs and G-SYNC monitors.
On top of that, the report from DSO goes on to say that God of War on PC will support Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling upscaling technology, something that has become a gaming industry standard lately. This AI-driven software allows the pixels to be redrawn to make it possible for higher resolutions. All in all, the new gameplay footage provides a glimpse of what the port of the game will look like on PC, but mostly wants to showcase Nvidia’s own technologies.
In addition to the next game in the series, we’ve had leaks about a potential God of War Ragnarok release date of September 30, 2022, although this has yet to be confirmed. If this is true, this year will indeed be an interesting time for gamers who love the God of War franchise.
