The game can be harder than DS on the highest difficulty but you won't have trouble on normal and there's easy as well.

GoW is a fantastic game, certainly one of the best on PS4 or any console generation, so it’s really nice to see this come to PC. Will definitely be picking this up for another play through.

Watch the video further up that Shankly posted, it has a bit of gameplay in it and a (mini ?) boss fight which might give you an idea ?

It definitely not at that difficulty level. If you die you don't need to restart the level either.
Perfect. Don't get me wrong, I like boss fights and love games like Darksiders and Devil May Cry. I just can't be bothered with all the restarting nonsense.

I missed that, would have bitten at that price.

Oh well, gives me a target price to aim at!
It's only 27.99 on there at the moment.

Does anyone know if you can import a PS4 cloud save? Would love to play through again on the PC in game plus mode.

This is definitely more DMC and Darksiders. It’s challenging but you don’t need a masters degree in dodge timing to do well, unlike Dark Souls :D

Looking forward to this one. If only Sony had 1440p support for the PS5... I'd give them more money

The higher frame rate on the PS5 alone is worth it, the advantage the PS5 has over my PC is that I can do HDR on the PS5. And for a last gen game this still looks truely amazing, will be interesting to see what the PC version adds.

Ultrawide for starters. Some of the videos on Twitter look amazeballs in that aspect ratio. That beats HDR for me.

On PS4 Pro I played it on Hard and completed the entire game and every side mission, except the final Valkarie.

It was only then I realised you can change the difficulty with no penalty what so ever, including trophies.

My advice - play on the standard difficulty...

Really interested to see the improvements in the new GoW as it's being built for the PS5. That being said, the current one looked amazing on the PS4 Pro - the Sony groups know how to make games.

hmm Mouse and keyboard of Xbox Controller?

Mouse and keyboard for me because I am utterly hopeless with a controller, probably due to having played 99.9% of my gaming life with mouse/keyboard. So much so that I can mouse/keyboard in a game just as well as anyone with a controller really.
