Thursday, January 4, 2018


God of War (commonly referred to as God of War 4 is an upcoming third-person action-adventure video game in development by Santa Monica Studio and to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE). It is scheduled to be released in early 2018 for the PlayStation 4 (PS4) console. It will be the eighth installment in the God of War series, the eighth chronologically, and the sequel to 2010's God of War III. The game will be a soft reboot for the franchise and will take the series to the world of Norse mythology—all previous games were based on Greek mythology. Series protagonist Kratos will return as the main character, and he now has a son named Atreus. Kratos acts as a mentor and protector to his son, and has to master the rage that has driven him for many years.
A major change is that Kratos will no longer use his signature double-chained blades, as he lost these at the conclusion of God of War III (2010). Instead, he will use a magical battle axe, called the Leviathan Axe,which can be infused with elemental abilities and thrown at enemies. The axe can be engulfed in ice, to which Kratos can hurl at an enemy and magically summon it back to his hand. Kratos will also be able to charge the axe and let out a burst of energy that will damage nearby enemies. Game director Cory Barlog said that the Leviathan Axe has a deep rooted history and connection with the characters; it is connected to both the son and his mother.Another new weapon that Kratos will utilize is a shield. When not in use, it folds up and appears like armor on Kratos' left forearm. When summoned, the shield can be used offensively and defensively. Kratos will also utilize hand-to-hand combat, a feature originally introduced in Ascension.
