A New Beginning – His vengeance against the gods of Olympus far behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the lands of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… and teach his son to do the same
Midgard and Beyond – Set within the untamed forests, mountains, and realms of Norse lore, God of War features a distinctly new setting with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods
When it comes to exclusive releases, Sony have shown themselves to be truly dedicated to ensuring that their huge customer base isn’t short of choice and quality.
The God of War series carved out a bloody path to success on the PS2 and PS3 systems by delivering some of the most cinematic and violent combat of all time, so it’s no surprise that Sony have been under scrutiny during the run up to this latest outing.
While most of the original titles focused more on brawling than an in-depth narrative, this iteration turns the tides in favor of a much more intelligent, carefully paced and encouraging story of family honor featuring Kratos, his son, Atreyus, and a whole wealth of beasts and deities.
Expect incredible graphics, astounding soundscapes, vicious violence and hugely satisfying combat as you fight your way from river to mountain and tread beyond this Earthly remain to find a sense of peace.
