One of the highly anticipated games, God Of War, that is scheduled to roll out coming April, has been rolling out series of cinematic as well as gameplay trailers. We've got you covered with a short history lesson and what it could mean for the game. The February Game Informer cover story was recently revealed to be God of War, and the Sony Santa Monica team revealed a ton of new gameplay details for the upcoming PS4 game.
Kratos is teaching Atreus how to survive in this land full of mythological creatures and gods while trying to start a new life away from his shadows of the past. I was worried that God of War had morphed into a series of escort missions (where you basically have to protect your AI companion and get them from A to B), but it turns out the kid, Atreus, is pretty useful.
First unveiled at Sony's E3 showcase back in 2016, God of War is a new chapter in the historic franchise, transporting the established characters of Kratos to a brand new setting, as well as surrounding him with new characters. We recently learn that there will also be a major overhaul to Kratos's Upgrade Path, creating a different dynamic in God of War.
PS Underground also talked about the use of the camera in God of War and how seamless it is. Even in combat the camera is constantly by Kratos' side, shaking slightly with each hit and moving with him. In it, Kratos's son Atreus also appears, holding a dagger that looks insufficient for taking on the hordes of foes.
Historically God of War has been a PlayStation exclusive and we imagine it'll remain so for the foreseeable future. I enjoyed the first couple God of War games at the time, and from a gameplay perspective, but I thought Kratos was a lame character. The trailer features the kind of father-and-son dynamic that players can expect from the game.
I've never been interested in the God of War series, but I admit I'm kinda looking forward to this one, and several other PS4 games dropping this year. Watch our impressions from multiple hours of hands-on time, including detailed explanations of the combat and progression systems, the design of the Norse realm, and much more.
It runs on for five minutes, but it is five minutes that is full of glorious bloody action, as well as tidbits of information of the Norse mythology that runs deep in this new and improved God of War. God of War releases on the PlayStation 4 on April 20th.
This part of their battle serves as a great reminder of Kratos' Spartan heritage, as he teaches his son to force an overwhelming number of enemies in a narrow passage where their numbers aren't an advantage anymore. God of War arrives April 20 on PS4 and there's a Stone Mason Collector's Edition you may want to check out.
Today, the latest episode of PlayStation Underground showed off some brand new gameplay footage, featuring Kratos taking on what looks to be a very big and very angry troll. Over the course of their time together, Atreus learns more about his father's complicated and shady past, while struggling with whether to be like his father or choose to be his own person.
God of War is not an open-world game, but it's not a linear adventure either. God of War is out April 20 on PS4. A God of War Collector's Edition was spotted on , listing the game with an April 20 release date. It's a brand new setting for the series and introduces its own pantheon of monsters, gods and creatures alike.
Sony Santa Monica invited us over to its studio last week, where we got to play about three hours of playthrough the upcoming God of War. Kratos immediately distrusts Freya due to her hiding her status as a goddess, but both Freya and Mímir warn him that he must tell Atreus about his true nature.
It's up to you to keep an eye on Kratos' enemies, because you don't have any arrows notifying you of imminent attacks or projectiles. A sequel followed and was equally well received, expanding upon the mythos of Spartan warrior Kratos who, by this time, had become the eponymous God of War.
