The God Of War series has had some ups and downs. While the main games in the series have been seen as masterpieces, their spinoff weren’t given as much love. But now, they may be making their biggest move yet with the next God Of War. As we see an older Kratos and his young son braving the Norse world and battling the gods and creatures that live in it.
At the Sony E3 Press Conference, a new trailer for the game was shown. One that sheds new life on the game, and where Kratos is in his life. Though he is the father of Atreus, he still is scarred by the wounds of his past, and likely still the loss of his first family. Add to that, he still has his warrior mentality, which seems to conflict with him being a father in some ways as you’ll see in the demo.
Despite the changes in story (and voice acting for Kratos) the action seems to be very God of War-like, albeit with new weapons and abilities. Including Kratos using an axe and shield as his primary tools in for battle here. Check out the full demo for the game below, God of War will return in 2018.
