God of War is back and Sony started their E3 2016 press conference which shocked many people. The game looks gorgeous as ever and Kratos is bald and has a beard. He also has a kid with him who he is trying to train.
Sony Santa Monica have attempted to do the Norse Mythology so you can expect many creatures from it. The demo shows a troll fighting Kratos, and the fight is as bloody as expected. It also looks pretty great. God of War: Ascension was the last God of War game.
It is very different from the previous God of War games and the developer explains why they chose this style.
“For Kratos, this change means breaking the cycle of violence, distrust and deception that his family, the Greek pantheon, perpetuated for so long. That cycle drove a whole host of bad decisions – the ill-fated deal with Ares, the murder of his family and a rage fueled descent into madness and vengeance that ultimately ended with the epic destruction of Olympus,” the post on PS Blog read.
You can check out the video below. This new direction for God of War sounds incredible. We can’t wait to see more of it. The game will be out in 2017.
