Here are some more details for God of War courtesy of Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Barlog:
“I knew I didn’t want to simply reboot the franchise, starting over with a retelling of the origin story. I wanted to reimagine the gameplay, give players a fresh perspective and a new tactile experience while delving deeper into the emotional journey of Kratos to explore the compelling drama that unfolds when an immortal demigod makes a decision to change.
For Kratos, this change means breaking the cycle of violence, distrust and deception that his family, the Greek pantheon, perpetuated for so long. That cycle drove a whole host of bad decisions – the ill-fated deal with Ares, the murder of his family and a rage fueled descent into madness and vengeance that ultimately ended with the epic destruction of Olympus.
It also means learning how to control his rage, the intensely turbulent monster that lives within him, steering him down ever-darker paths. Kratos needed to figure out how to put the monster back in the box, how to control when he does and does not let that monster out.”
Sony has confirmed God of War for the PlayStation 4. Although the series has returned, its famous protagonist, Kratos, isn’t the only main character. This time, he’s older and plays the role of a mentor and father. According to the developer, it’s a new bold take on the series.
We’ll update the article as we get more details so stay tuned.
