God of War hotfix takes aim at ‘out of memory’ errors

God of War finally launched on PC last week, and it is very good. According to our 90% review, it’s “the best version of a fantastic game,” and it performs so well that you might not even need to spring for a new GPU: A little tweaking and tuning, and God of War can run like aces on the integrated graphics of AMD’s Ryzen 7 5700G. It’s also racked up an “overwhelmingly positive” rating across more than 10,000 user reviews on Steam over the course of a weekend. Not bad at all.

Of course, there’s no such thing as a completely flawless launch, and some users have been reporting out of memory errors, even on high-end rigs. After digging into the complaints, Sony found that most of the reports were coming from people with new 12th-Gen Intel CPUs with integrated graphics. Disabling those integrated graphics was an effective (but obviously not ideal) workaround, but now a hotfix is available in an “experimental” branch on Steam that will hopefully provide a more user-friendly solution.
