Release Date: 20/04/2018
The God of War series has been entertaining gaming fans since 2005. No, that’s not a typo, this hugely successful franchise has been on the go for more than 10 years. With its unique blend of fighting mechanics and mythology, it’s easy to see why so many people have become encapsulated in the games. 
 
Where the first range of games in the series has followed Greek mythology, the new God of War will be set within Norse mythology. This is a first for the franchise and something that was originally considered by video game designer, David Jaffe. 
 
Designed as a sequel to 2010’s God of War III, the game will take place many years after the events of its predecessor with Kratos returning. Naturally, after so many years have passed, things within the game have changed. A bearded and world-weary Kratos now has a son, something shown in the title’s impressive trailers. 
 
When it comes to gameplay, developers SIE Santa Monica Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment have called it a reimagining of the franchise, meaning there are some great new features for players to really get their teeth stuck into. 
 
For those with an excellent memory, you may remember that Kratos lost his signature double-chained blades at the end of God of War III. Naturally, this means that he will not use them in the new game, instead opting for a magical battle axe known as the Leviathan Axe. This special weapon can be infused with elemental abilities and thrown at his enemies.  
 
It’s not all new though, some of the combat mechanics that gamers loved from previous games return, but with a new coat of polish. These include the Spartan Rage ability, similar to Rage in previous instalments. Like in its predecessors, Spartan Rage allows Kratos to use incredibly powerful hand-based attacks that damage enemies massively. 
 
Although God of War is played entirely as Kratos, there are times that gamers can choose to passively control his son, Atreus. In this instance, one button is dedicated to Atreus and its use depends on what is going on in-game. By this we mean that if Kratos needs help, the player can look towards an enemy, press the button and allow Atreus to take that enemy down with his bow. 
 
With many of the same development team working on God of War as its predecessors, all of the impressive changes are rooted in the lore of the previous games. Despite its vast alterations and different mythology, it’s sure to feel like a proper God of War title. Couple this with the stunning performance capabilities of Sony’s PS4 and God of War is sure to be another sure fire hit in the franchise. 

God Of War FAQs

Can this be played as a standalone game?

God of War (2018) is acting as a soft reboot of the franchise and takes the series into the world of Norse mythology for the first time. All previous games in the series have focused on Greek mythology.

What characters will feature in God of War?

Kratos will return to take his vengeance on the Olympian gods many years after his final encounter with Zeus. Kratos is now living with his son Atreus in the world of Norse mythology.

What new weapons will be available?

No. Although the previous instalment, Ascension, featured a multi-player campaign, this soft reboot will be single player orientated.

    The Leviathan Axe

    Kratos lost his powerful and iconic weapon at the end of God of War III, but he’s back with a new signature weapon to use in vicious combat. The Leviathan Axe is his powerful weapon that can battle whatever unusual creatures you may discover as you explore the World.

    Atreus

    He now has a family. In God of War, Kratos will have a constant companion as he takes his son across the dangerous worlds to lay his mother’s ashes. However, his son is independent and stays out of the way so you’ll only notice him when you need his help!

    New World

    Delve into a whole new mythology as you explore the open world in Scandinavia. Meet new mysterious Gods and learn about the Norse mythology as Kratos and Atreus set off on their quest.


    Customised Weapons

    It’s not all about hack and slash in this God of War. You can customise Kratos’s weapons, armour and enchantments just the way you wish. Choose to play defensively or with strength as you choose his equipped gear which all effects the way he combats enemies.

    Character

    Kratos will always be the grumpy old Spartan, but he has changed. Now he is depended on by his son Atreus, and he must protect himself and his son as they venture their way through dangerous worlds. In God of War, he must protect, defeat as well as balance his emotions and internal struggle.

    New Role

    He’s no longer attempting to be a better God, he’s trying to evolve into a better man for himself and his son.
