God of War Ragnarok - The Barrens Nornir Chest, All details - Cover

Sony just had a successful release of one of its premiered games. More than four years after the original, God of War gets the much-awaited sequel in God of War: Ragnarok. GoW: Ragnarok was released on November 9, 2022, and was positively received by critics and the gaming community. It is safe to say that it lived up to the hype and exceeded expectations. But, since it’s a Sony-exclusive title, GoW: Ragnarok was only released on the PlayStation 4 and 5. However, the first installment to this beloved franchise got the opportunity to be ported for PC gamers after four years since it was conceived. This leaves us with the question – When will God of War: Ragnarok come to PC? Plus, what is this game’s basic requirements so my computer can run smoothly?

God of War: Ragnarok possible release date

God of War was released for PlayStation 4 on August 20, 2018. It was until January 14, 2022, that fans of Kratos were able to embark on his epic God-slaying adventures on PC. That’s almost four years of waiting which is roughly the estimated time for PlayStation games before they get an official release on PC.

Although there is no official announcement from Sony that GoW: Ragnarok will be arriving on PC, the chances of it becoming true are very high. Since Sony is highly committed to offering AAA titles to PC releases such as Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted, and the two Marvel’s Spider-Man: Morales games, there’s a great possibility of Ragnarok will join this club. Additionally, according to PlayStation Studios’ head Hermen Hulst, we could be seeing popular PlayStation games receive a port on PC a year after their release.

“Going forward we’ll see at least a year between releases on PlayStation and on the PC platform, possibly with the exception of live service games.”

That being said, there’s a possibility that GoW: Ragnarok may grace us with its presence on PC come November 9, 2023, at the earliest. It was hinted by one of the executives at PlayStation but let’s not get our hopes too high yet.

God of War: Ragnarok PC System Requirements

Minimum requirements:

RAM 8 GB (DDR4)
FREE DISK SPACE 70 GB
CPU Intel Core i5-4670 or Ryzen 5 1600
GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 580

CPU Intel Core i5-6600K or Ryzen 5 2600X
GPU NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or Radeon RX 5700 XT
Operating System Windows 10 64 bit

 

Why the RX5700 XT or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is the recommended graphics card?

A release date is still unknown let alone the required PC system specifications for a smooth gaming experience. But, why did we pick the RX5700 XT and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 as the recommended GPU?

The answer lies behind PlayStation 5‘s own GPU: AMD Radeon™ RDNA 2-based graphics engine. PS5’s GPU is almost similar to Ryzen’s RX5700 XT, which was only released in 2019. Released in that same year, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 – while may be a cheaper choice – can be on par with RX5700 XT’s performance.
