God of War PS4 (5)

In the latest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine (via PSU), Sony Santa Monica’s Aaron Kaufman revealed that God of War will feature dynamic combat, which will see Kratos and his son Atreus joining forces to take enemies down. As an example, he said:

There’s a really cool move where he [Atreus] jumps on the back enemy’s back and you hit the Square button, which is for the son, and he’ll jump on the enemy’s back and start firing arrows, and then you can throw your axe. And that’s just one example of the dynamism between him [Kratos] and Atreus.

Kaufman also said that the upcoming title is a sequel to the previous game.

It’s an indeterminate amount of time between the end of God of War III and the beginning of the game. We wanted to put Kratos on a deeply personal quest.

God of War is set to release in early 2018.
