His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus behind him, Kratos now lives in the realm of Norse deities and monsters.
It’s in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive, and not only teach his son to do the same… but also prevent him from repeating the Ghost of Sparta’s bloodstained mistakes.
This staggering reimagining of God of War combines all the hallmarks of the iconic series – brutal combat, epic boss fights and breathtaking scale – and fuses them with a powerful and moving narrative that re-establishes Kratos’ world.
A DARKER, MORE ELEMENTAL WORLD
From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods.
With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.
VICIOUS PHYSICAL COMBAT
With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.
A BOLD NEW NARATIVE
As mentor and protector to a son determined to earn his respect, Kratos is faced with an unexpected opportunity to master the rage that has long defined him. Questioning the dark lineage he’s passed on to his offspring, he hopes to make amends for the shortcomings – and horrors – of his past.
