The game was developed by Cory Barlog who has previously worked on God of War 2. The game's Metacritic score even goes up from 93 to 94 as he's watching, leading him to thank everyone who worked alongside him.

The footage also shows off a potential but ultimately rejected UI design for weapon upgrades, with Kratos' weapon used as the interface to avoid any cuts to menu screens. How many copies do you think the game will sell in its debut week? "It proved to be a little bit too cumbersome and hard to figure out while getting everything else done".

Remember, if you want to play God of War as soon as possible the game will unlock at midnight on April 20. See the footage for yourself above.

Sony Interactive Entertainment went ahead and livestreamed God of War, and they chose to preview the highly sought-after photo mode.

The latest God of War combines the tried and true action of the series (with some fresh updates) with my favorite mythology.


Furthermore, enemies' defense gets boosted and can only be wall-pinned while they are mid-air, they can counterattack immediately after taking a hit or blocking an attack, Kratos' movement during combat is much more precise, Kratos will have fewer advantages when its level is higher than enemies'.

Five years is a long time to work on anything, but in the case of the new God of War, the investment paid off handsomely. It's a great callback, and it helps add to the mystique that these Sisters are truly masters of time and space - which makes it all the more satisfying when you start using their powers against them.

Filmed in the style of a mockumentary, My Spirit Animal: Kratos from God of War takes a brief look into the life of Gary Hercule.

There is also a God of War Deluxe Edition that includes some nifty in-game items and physical goodies for players.

That's not to say that Kratos is restrained - violence and gore remain devastatingly present in finishing off enemies, just like previous games. Moving your phone in the real world will let you study the landscape, while tapping on specific locations will bring up additional information delightfully read by Mimir himself. Using the Hacksilvers that you get throughout the game, you are given an opportunity to buy one from the shops. In our very positive review of the game, we said that "Vengeance may not be what Kratos seeks anymore, but that has done little to stop the God of War franchise". Who isn't? But to be clear, this series has always been about the boss fights, and even though the tone has changed, the trailers for the new game are still showing off some ridiculously huge titans we'll have to take down.
