One of the biggest reveals at E3 2016 was God of War on PlayStation 4. The latest game in Sony Santa Monica’s action series wowed gamers with impressive visuals, a new emphasis on storytelling, and revamped gameplay. The developer has been mostly mum since then, as they’ve been hard at work on the PS4 exclusive.
Now a few interesting tidbits have surfaced from Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Barlog. The first of which is about a possible demo for the game. When asked by a fan about a demo, Barlog revealed on his Twitter account that they were working hard on the game, and that there wouldn’t be a demo due to it.
That might be a bummer for some fans who were looking forward to checking out the game early, but there’s a good reason. “[The] game [will] be better the fewer demos we do,” explained Barlog. “Demos pull a month or two away from final game.” So, all things considered, it’s probably best that a demo isn’t made, unless gamers want to wait a few extra months to play Kratos’ triumphant return.
Balrog also told another fan that God of War is “designed for [the] standard PS4” and that the E3 gameplay was running on a regular PS4. That puts to rest speculation that it was actually running on a PlayStation 4 Pro, which was believable considering how incredible the game looked. Good news for regular PS4 owners then!
God of War doesn’t currently have a release date, but is expected to release exclusively on PlayStation 4.
