God of War podcast

The upcoming God of War is one of the most anticipated games on the horizon for the PlayStation 4, and realizing that, Sony has decided to introduce a companion podcast alongside the game.

The podcast will be hoisted by Jason Weiser (from The Myths and Legends podcast) and will focus around unveiling “one of the Lost Pages of Norse Myth”. The podcast aims to reveal new and official backstory from the world of God of War.

The first episode of the podcast, titled “Odin and the Knowledge Keeper” is now live, and can be viewed below:

For more on God of War, make sure to check out our preview of the game from this years E3:

God of War is back, and it has brought with it some fresh ideas. Not only in gameplay, with a helper character, truly defensive options, and the removal of blatant button prompts. But also in the world from which this game’s mythology is drawn from. Kratos continues to struggle despite a lengthy period of self-imposed isolation. Meanwhile, his son appears to be just as willing and able to conquer his fears and vanquish enemies as Kratos. Yet there remain so many unanswered questions: what is in that satchel Kratos is seen handing to Atreus? What happened to Kratos while he was away from the world? Who was Atreus’ mother? Or that woman talking to him? By leaving these things unanswered, Sony Santa Monica has left us all talking amongst ourselves, awaiting with a near fever-pitch level of anticipation, for what looks to be another solid entry in this venerable series.

It is still too early to call this game, but what we’ve seen is as promising as any of the other strong God of War games. Watch this space for more God of War E3 coverage to come, including a one-on-one interview with Cory Barlog to dive a little deeper into the development of this new direction for the franchise.

God of War is set to launch sometime in Q1 2018 for the PlayStation 4.
