After looking at the DF and some images, I'm honestly having a hard time trying to see the big differences with texture detail and SSR. Shadows are easy and obviously night/day, as are LoD's and no ghosting, but texture detail and SSR still look muddy to me, even in the 3 side by side vids/shots. 

True in most instances and without looking for faults or side by sides they aren't that different apart from shadow quality and IQ. I'd mostly boil the extra detail to native resolution or ai upscale vs checkerboard resolutions. We kinda have to keep in mind this was a PS4 game initially and ported over to run on DX. And with Sony not having much experience with PC, they've got an external developer on this port. Think their name is 'Jetpack Interactive'. Tbh I think they've done a pretty good job of it imo.

Granted, there are hitches here and there, you can see that there was at least some effort done with this, with a load of options that many devs just flat out ignore or lazily just release without much care or attention. *coughSquareEnixcough*

Yea pretty much. If Sony continues to make ports like Days Gone and God of War, then I am pretty excited about their future PC iterations. Especially considering how Halo Infinite, a game made by Microsoft, ran like arse while God of War, a game made by Sony, runs pretty well and has DLSS and etc.

It will be interesting to see how these two publishers continue with their future ports cause we may one day have a "console war" on with these publishers on PC lol.

Yup its surely promising. There's some games I'm anticipating for PC like the Uncharted collection.. as that is the one I'm mostly looking forward to. But yeah seeing efforts like this bodes well for future ports from Sony. I want to see Xbox Studios step up their games as its not much excuse in not offering top tier stuff and bells and whistles (DLSS, FSR, Reflex Low Latency etc etc) seeing at their ecosystems API's are based on DX. Like for Starfield (a game I want to play) it'll be great if it performs well and had DLSS and more.

And for once I want to see see this lol. If more competition leads to better ports I'm all for it.

I'm curious, does GoW PC look better than GoW:Rags PS5?

No. God of War PC is just an enhanced port of the PS4 version. GoW Rags will have visuals that won't be possible on PS4 or GoW PC port. Perhaps with mods, you can enhanced GoW PC to look similar to Rags but it's unlikely it will get to that point.

Iirc the PS5 version runs 4K with checkboarding @ 60fps (so probably ~1440P) on performance mode with lower settings on PC so this is quite a demanding game, despite being a PS4 game from 2018. It does seem a little low though considering the PS5's GPU desktop equivalent should fall in between a 6600XT and a 6700XT, and should be closer to the former.

DF just did a deep dive of the game's technical performance review and they say its a good one.

There are quite a few improvements in this port has like better LOD's; less pop ins, higher quality textures, SSR, volumetric fog and shadows (even on normal settings). There are some issues though like asset streaming in between loading that causes some dips in performance - though the devs are well aware and should be in a future patch.

Thus far this seems to be the superior version, and though not by a mile it looks like a decent upgrade. My only real gripe is that they don't have a FOV slider which is a shame because the camera is so darn close to Kratos. I'll most likely double dip at some point when it comes on sale on Steam.

Its the game us PC gamers have been waiting for so long. best game on PC, we never had anything come close to this master of a game before hand (sarcasm btw just going by the way the article turned out on the main page). It is really a great game but how Sony fans can think this is the best game on PC has me puzzled..



^ You didn't get the memo? It's because it's from Sony, and everything Sony does is perfect.

hmmn, that's got me thinking, what about those reshade RT filters that Nvidia has recently collaborated with?, do you think those could be supported and used for GoW PC?. 

If possible, I imagine they could improve visual looks by a small margin, but I know the perf impact will likely be 10-20% (ultra shadows and SSR alone give a hit between that margin).

Let me find my time machine, its here somewhere....

Edit: A Xbox console exclusive, a Playstation console exclusive and a Nintendo Switch console exclusive all in the global top sellers on a PC platform - you love to see it.

Eh let them fight lol. Overzealous fans will always find a way to try one up over another like a pointless circus act. Its not any worse than other fanboys claiming their *insert brand/game* are the best and act like their stance is an objective opinion. Lets try leave that out of this thread tho :P


In other news Intel's upcoming Raptor Lake rumored to have 55% more cache over Alder Lake with 68MB cache.

https://wccftech.com/intel-13th-gen-raptor-lake-cpus-could-feature-up-to-55-more-cache-over-alder-lake-for-enhanced-gaming-performance/

I have a feeling this ones going to be a big jump in terms of gaming performance. Even when compared from Rocket Lake to Alder Lake. Its going to be a interesting fight with AMD readying Zen 3D and 4 this year. Looks like both companies are pushing cache as the way forward.

Honestly I would have preferred God of War Saga (God of War 1, 2, 3, Ghost of Sparta, Chains of Olympus)

I dont care about Ascension (cause its terrible, played/finished it few years back when I did a God of War marathon) and I still need to play my copy of God of War on PS4 lol.

I'll get the PC version sometime in the future when its like $20 - thats how much I got Horizon for last month (which ironically is more expensive than what I paid for the PS4 version - which was $10 lol).

I'll get Days Gone on PC too in the future, will probably get it before I get it on PS4. I should have bought it when it was $14 back in July 2020...maybe it'll go on sale again, dont really want to spend $20 on the PS4 ver cause it doesnt really look like a game that is worth that much.

Personally I rather hope/want the collection games to be on PC in the future (Jak and Daxter collection, Ratchet and Clank Collection, Resistance Trilogy, Killzone collection, Sly Collection, God of War Saga and InFamous Collection).

Got most of them but they are stuck on the PS3.
