God of War is Sony’s biggest PC launch to date

We now live in a world where God of War is a PC game, and it’s a damn good one at that. It’s had a fantastic launch weekend on Steam, with a healthy concurrent player count and a wealth of positive reviews.

January 16 saw the gruff dad simulator garner 73,529 concurrent players according to SteamDB, the highest peak reached by any of Sony’s PC catalogue. That’s not half-bad for a game that’s technically nearing its fourth anniversary. It’s also sitting at an impressive 97% overwhelmingly positive rating on Steam as I write this. Many reviews are praising the excellent job Jetpack Interactive and Santa Monica Studio have done on the port, something which staff writer Morgan Park echoed in his God of War review. It’s mighty refreshing after 2021 saw some disappointing console-to-PC ports like Ninja Gaiden, Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne and Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
