God of War is the next major PS4 exclusive
Its release date is coming quite soon–it’s out on April 20, meaning time is running out if you’re eager to pre-order.
With this game, developer Sony Santa Monica promises Kratos, the GoW himself, has some depth to him. He’s not just raging at the world, as he’s been known to do in previous entries. This time around he’s joined by his son Atreus as they head into the land of the Norse gods. Most importantly, he has a beard.But fans of the series shouldn’t worry Sony has created a low-key game about feelings. This is still a God of War game, and although Kratos has traded in his chain-blades for a magic axe, he still slices through enemies, spilling gallons of blood and gore. You can read all about what to expect in our God of War review, which is quite positive.
