God of War

Following the news today that God of War will no longer be a PlayStation exclusive since Sony announced the 2018 game will be available on PC beginning in January of 2022, Twitter has gone wild with the prospect of playing the game on the forthcoming Valve Steam Deck and proclaiming the handheld the unofficial successor to the PlayStation Vita.

It’s really igniting the collective imagination of gamers, who were blown away that the franchise that remained a PlayStation exclusive from its first game in 2005 would now be able to be played on other platforms.

Fans are still eagerly awaiting 2022’s God of War: Ragnarok well, making the recent announcement a good bit of fodder with which to occupy themselves in the meantime.

In terms of the 2018 reboot of God of War which will soon be hitting PCs and Stem Decks everywhere, it is considered one of the best all-time titles for the PlayStation 4, selling over 19.5 million copies and winning several awards. Time will tell if the forthcoming Ragnarok will also get the PC treatment down the line.

Watch the throne, Sony. You left it vacant for too long.
