God of War is setting out to be one of the most successful PlayStation Studios’ games on PC, hitting a new concurrent players record for the publisher.
As reported by Benji Sales, the game originally developed by Sony Santa Monica is the first one from the publisher to hit over 70,000 concurrent players on Steam. A number that’s considerably higher than that hit by Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone.
God of War on Steam peaked even higher today for concurrent players. Its the first PlayStation Studios game to reach 70k+
God of War – 73,529
Horizon ZD – 56,557
Days Gone – 27,450
This has sold a LOT of copies and likely pushed God of War over 20+ Million Units sold Lifetime pic.twitter.com/GtR8lH7K05

God of War’s success on PC isn’t particularly surprising, considering how good the game is. The port is also well-made and the most feature-rich, as highlighted by Alessio in his analysis.
It’s also the most feature-rich of Sony’s PC ports to date, featuring support for NVIDIA DLSS, AMD FSR, and NVIDIA Reflex at launch. With God of War Ragnarök coming up later this year on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, anyone who isn’t yet caught up with the first part of the adventures of Kratos and Atreus in the Nine Realms should definitely jump at the chance to do so.
God of War is now available on PC and PlayStation consoles worldwide. You can learn more about the game by checking out Kai’s review.
God of War is one of those rare titles that define the console generation. Kratos’ fighting has been refined to its very best and the lands of Midgard are filled with wonders of all manner to explore and defeat. It’s been nearly the entire lifespan of the PlayStation 4 console since Kratos has seen new adventure but the wait has been absolutely worth it. Santa Monica Studio’s journey is still far from over, but they’ve once again shown why Kratos is one of gaming’s greatest anti-heroes.
