God of War is an upcoming third-person action-adventure video game in development by Santa Monica Studio and to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 console. It will be the eighth installment in the God of War series, the eighth chronologically, and the sequel to 2010's God of War III. The game will be a soft reboot for the franchise and will take the series to the world of Norse mythology—all previous games were based on Greek mythology. Series protagonist Kratos will return as the main character, and he now has a son named Atreus. Kratos acts as a mentor and protector to his son, and has to master the rage that has driven him for many years.

When I first moved next door to Masiv, I was playing the N64, we dallied a bit with PC games in his garage, I moved away, then came back several years later (tumultuous relationship) and had left gaming behind. Another friend that I worked with, loaned me a PS2 with the first God of War to help me relieve some of the frustrations of the job (GM) and it was instant, "I LOVE THIS GAME". Within a week, I bought my own used PS2, and a week after that, I bought a 120 Slim PS3, and proceeded to complete the GoW games out, then GoW3.

So, the God of War series was a big part of me getting back into gaming, then dragging Masiv with me.

I do however hope they change the controls to more modern set ups, while the games were "boss" to me then, I find it difficult to return to them now due to the controller mechanics. They will always be very fond memories, but if they don't modernize it to this gen as to control and mechanics, I don't feel it will succeed as it's predecessors did.

Here's hoping, as I preordered it today, with FAITH.

I've played God of War 1 and 3.Enjoyed them both.GoW3 stands out to me because of the sheer size of some of the bosses.A change to Norse mythology gets me interested,because it freshens things up a bit.

It's a new beginning — With his vengeance against the gods of Olympus far behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the lands of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… and teach his son to do the same.

Release Date: April 20th, 2018

The long-awaited return to the God of War franchise is finally here.

God of War is an acclaimed hack-and-slash video game franchise from Sony's Santa Monica Studio. The 2018 entry to the series is simply called God of War, and lands as the eighth instalment overall.

It's a direct sequel to 2010's God of War III, and is generally seen as a soft reboot for the franchise. What's exciting about God of War 4 is that it moves on from its traditional Greek mythology into a new Norse setting.

In April, God of War director Cory Barlog revealed it took a Santa Monica Games designer 43 hours to get 100 per cent completion on the game. According to the How Long to Beat game length tracker, the original 2005 God of War game took just 12.5 hours to complete. God of War has a slightly longer 13-hour completion time, while God of War 3 was the biggest to date, taking 17 hours to finish.

So it's good news – you'll be getting more bang for your buck from the latest game than any God of War title before.
