Sony publishes God of War PC system requirements, adds DLSS to Horizon Zero Dawn

Sony posted the system requirements for the upcoming PC version of its 2018 hit God of War this week, along with a new trailer reiterating the PC port’s enhancements. They seem slightly steep if you want to play the game in 4K.

When Sony announced God of War for PC in October, it confirmed the port would support Nvidia DLSS, Nvidia Reflex, higher resolution shadows, Ground Truth Ambient Occlusion, Screen Space Directional Occlusion, and 21:9 aspect ratio. The new trailer containing PC footage at 4K and 60 frames per second reconfirms these features.

The system requirements appear similar to those of Sony’s other Blockbuster PC ports – Horizon: Zero Dawn and Days Gone. Impressively, the ancient i5-2500k can still play these games, although it does seem strange for God of War to recommend a Ryzen 9 3950X for 4K 60fps.
