During Sony’s E3 presented , an extended story and gameplay focused trailer for the hotly anticipated PlayStation exclusive God of War took center stage. The footage showcases revamped combat, explores the central premise between Kratos and his son, and shows off numerous Norse mythology inspired enemies, including teasing a highly impressive massive serpent boss battle. Check out the trailer here…
It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created…
His vengeance against the gods of Olympus far behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the lands of the Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive…and teach his son to do the same.
As mentor and protector to a son determined to earn his respect, Kratos is faced with an unexpected opportunity to master the rage that has long defined him. Questioning the dark lineage he’s passed on to his son, he hopes to make amends for the shortcomings of his past.
Set within the untamed forests, mountains, and realms of Norse lore, God of War features a distinctly new setting with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods.
With an intimate, over-the-shoulder free camera that brings the action closer than ever, combat in God of War is up close, frenetic, and unflinching. Kratos’ axe – powerful, magic and multi-faceted – is a brutal weapon as well as a versatile tool for exploration.
God of War 4 was also given a release date of March 2018 and marks Kratos’ second outing on the PS4 after a remaster of God of War III.
