Even Cory Barlog, creative director at Santa Monica, couldn't resist making a joke of it on the official PlayStation blog. We now have that date, and God of War will blaze it on PS4 systems starting April 20. He's a father once again, to a boy named Atreus, who will serve as his companion in the upcoming God of War sequel for the Playstation 4. This has previously been confirmed by Barlog, who says that it is simply "separated by geography", and while Kratos will clash with the Viking gods, the game is set at a time that predates them entirely. Check it out below.
God of War 4 is easily one of the most anticipated games to come out in 2018.
Some have criticized the title for being the video game equivalent of Oscar-bait and those people won't change their minds when they see this trailer.
A closer look at the Collector's Edition and the Stone Mason Edition can be found after the break. There is a Digital Deluxe edition too for Dollars 70 (Rs 4,500 approximately) but one would need a United States or Canada PSN account to officially own and download it. It's also been revealed that God of War will be launching with multiple special editions of the game, including the Collector's Edition, the Stone Mason's Edition and the Digital Deluxe Edition. If you were a fan of Kratos' earlier adventures but got a bit burnt out as Sony milked the franchise dry, this new game seems like it'll be a good place to get back on board.
Are you excited for God of War?
Sony also announced pre-order bonuses for the game, which are three legendary shield skins for Kratos. In North America and Canada, ordering this version of the game will get you an actual pin. Opting for the Digital Deluxe Edition ($69.99) will add the Death's Vow Armor Set to increase your strength, as well as a digital artbook and comic from Dark Horse Comics. It is essentially the Collector's Edition but without anything physical, so it just has the game, the digital comic books and the in-game goodies mentioned above.
