Steam users who have pre-purchased the PC port of God of War will be able to pre-load Santa Monica Studio’s unforgettable action adventure as early as tomorrow morning.

The date was confirmed by the first-party PlayStation studio today, which shared a tweet noting that the pre-loading period for the Steam version will begin on January 12 at 8 a.m. PT. Steam is selling the game for $49.99, but keys for God of War can be found on third-party shops such as GameBillet for as low as $40.

“His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters,” a description for the game reads. “It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… and teach his son to do the same.”

According to a PC system requirements tables shared in December, God of War players who want to experience Kratos’ latest journey under the Ultra setting at 4K/60 FPS will require an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (10 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT (16 GB) graphics card and 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor at minimum, along with 16 GB of memory and 70 GB of free SSD space.
