God of War 2018: Play on Older Windows Versions With This Mod
God of War 2018 has recently been made available on Steam for PC players, offering more people the chance to experience the game on their gaming PCs. However, the game is only compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 11, leaving out players with older versions of Windows. Fortunately, modders have come up with a solution to this problem, allowing players to run the game on older versions of Windows.
God of War PC: The Mod and How It Works
Modders okt04175 and alan2350 have developed a mod that enables the game to run on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 devices. The mod works by tweaking the OS detection behavior of the game when it is loaded up. However, players must still ensure that their PC meets the other hardware system requirements.
Installing the Mod
To install the mod and enable the game to run on older versions of Windows, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Download All Necessary Files
Download the mod files from Nexus Mods, which include doitsujin’s dxvk file, HansKristian-Work’s vkd3d-proton file, Sporif’s DXVK-Async Patch file, and marco-calautti’s DeltaPatcher file.
Step 2: Patch the GoW.exe File
Using the DeltaPatcher file, you just downloaded, patch the game’s main GoW.exe executable file from the directory.
Step 3: Copy the DLL Files to the Game Directory
Copy the two downloaded DLL files, the DXVK d3d11.dll and dxgi.dll files, to the game’s main directory (the same folder as the GoW.exe file).
Additional Steps If Necessary
If the above steps do not work, players can apply the DXVK-Async Patch to launch the game and install Vulkan Runtime if it is not installed. These files are included in the mod files downloaded in step 1.
With this mod, players with older versions of Windows can now enjoy God of War 2018 on their gaming PCs. The installation process is straightforward and only requires downloading a few files and patching the game’s main .exe file.
