From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for considered one of gaming’s so much recognizable icons. Living as a man outdoor the shadow of the gods, Kratos should adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats and a second chance at being a father. At the side of his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to meet a deeply personal quest.
Bold New Beginning — His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years at the back of him, Kratos now lives as a man within the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It’s on this harsh, unforgiving world that he should fight to live to tell the tale…And teach his son to do the similar. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat; breath-taking scale; and a strong narrative—and fuses them anew.
A Second Chance — Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son decided to earn his respect, he’s forced to maintain and regulate the craze that has long defined him at the same time as out in a very dangerous world along with his son.
A Darker, More Elemental World — From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this can be a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the arena will draw players in to explore each and every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by a ways the biggest within the franchise.
Vicious, Physical Combat — With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty and gruelling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War at the same time as presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground within the genre.
