God of War is Sony’s largest, highest rated Steam launch

It’s clear that there’s a huge appetite for PlayStation exclusive on PC. You do not have to look at numbers to come to this conclusion, but they do an excellent job of proving the point. After the successful launches of Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone, there were small chances god of war – without a doubt the best of the three – would not do an even better job.

The PC gateway to God of War, released on Friday, January 14, is now officially Sony’s biggest Steam launch ever. The game attracted 73,529 contemporaries at its highest, enough to land it in the top ten list at some point. This is significantly higher than the Horizon Zero Dawn’s 56,557 peak simultaneous, and far beyond the Days Gones lean (for comparison) 27,450 peak.

The average for Steam review also paints a similar picture. God of War has an overwhelmingly positive review rating, or 97% positive, based on 9,095 user reviews in just the few days. By comparison, the Horizon Zero Dawn received only a very positive rating, or 84% positive, based on 51,266 reviews. Days Gone actually has a better rating of 91% (but still very positive) based on 19,821 user reviews.

Many of the user reviews for God of War touch on some of the issues we highlighted in our PC technical review. Things like the lack of an FOV slider, exclusive full-screen support, a dedicated AA solution are just a few of them. That said, the God of War PC version is also the most optimized of all three games and has virtually no issues to talk about – except for the bizarre Intel 12. Gen CPU error that prevents the game from starting when the built-in GPU is enabled – something that is already an experimental patch for.

It is worth remembering that all three games are also available in the Epic Games Store, which means that the PC player base is likely to be even larger, which only bodes well for future releases. The next officially announced PlayStation exclusivity coming to PC is Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which includes Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: Lost Legacy. It does not yet have a fixed release date, but it should be in our hands this year.
