Santa Monica Studio and Sony Interactive Entertainment released God of War in April 2018. God of War is an action-adventure video game, developed for PlayStation 4, with more than 3.1 million units sold. The game could be the most significant release for Sony of all time. Because of its massive success and exciting gameplay, more and more people have asked for a PC version of God of War 4. Of course, the rumors have been getting out about this issue and that Sony will release a PC version. Unfortunately, none of the rumors are true.
No PC Version for God of War 4
The simple answer at the question ‘Why aren’t we having a PC version?’ is that Santa Monica Studios aren’t creating PC games. The company debuted in 1999, and since then it created only games for the PlayStation. The only exception was with God of War: Betrayal, a mobile game released in June 2007, because of the collaboration with Javaground and Sony Online Entertainment Los Angeles. Also, Sony Interactive Entertainment has made a clear statement saying that God of War 4 is exclusively for PlayStation 4. No announcements regarding a Pc version of the game were released.
On the other hand, if you want to play God of War 4 on your PC, you can use a PS4 emulator which will mimic the feature of a PS4 on a computer. Of course, the emulators aren’t licensed by Sony and Santa Monica Studio. If this is not enough, we can recommend you some PC games that are similar to God of War 4, such as Hellblade and For Honor.
Finally, you can check both Hellblade and For Honor, and you will see that the first game is based on Norse mythology just as God of War 4 is based on Greek mythology; and the second game, For Honor, has similar fight mechanics like God of War 4. Maybe these two games won’t beat God of War 4, but you can try them and have similar games for your PC until, possibly, the developers will release one version of the game.
