About

It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, he ventures into the brutal Norse wilds with his son Atreus, fighting to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm 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. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat; breathtaking scale; and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

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.

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

    God of War reviews and comments

    Loved this more than I expected to. Incredibly cool world, story, enemies, and filled to the brim with bosses. Normally I’m wary and anxious to fight larger enemies but in this game I loved the larger challenges, learning how to approach them and what attacks to use until it became almost second nature how to defeat their moveset. The amount of character development is also very impressive. The way Kratos is made to be an extremely harsh, aggressive father left me with so much joy anytime he gave a shred of kindness to Atreus, and eventually he becomes a better, more wholesome father who faces his life and chooses to be better. You can acknowledge your past and change, even if the path you walk is still soaked in blood.
    «That ending!»
    Ahhhh I really wanted to like this more than I did. I enjoyed the experience, but I never felt connected with the story which sucks because people loved it. I really enjoyed the combat, but found the gameplay to get a bit tedious when I entertained even some side-quests and there's so much more until I 100% it. I also had issues with frame rate holding steady despite being on a PS4 Pro. Excellent game, but I didn't connect with it in the way others may have.
    What a reboot!

    «Can’t stop playing»
    The story and visuals were out of the world. I played the story level difficulty but still liked the combat. maybe will try playing on normal next time. the sound track was great and the axe throw and getting back was a great experience. This is a great game.
    «Blew my mind»
    The abolute madmen managed to redeem Kratos.
    «Sit back and relax»
    Just think that soft-reboot of the series that never interests me before will find itself in the dying genre of 3d-metroidvania, which I adore so much.

    Popular Review: "God of War’s outstanding characters, world, and combat come together to form an unforgettable adventure."

    My Review: M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E-! Pretty much everything I've ever wanted from a God of War game. Excellent story, deep combat, and great graphics. Wonderful experience from start to finish.

    «OST on repeat»
    Pretty darn good. Gameplay is enjoyable and challenging, has depth. The world and story/characters could feel a little more natural but overall it's solid.

    «That ending!»
    God of War presents an unexpected and heart-warming story in the midst of gore and action. The combat is exciting and flashy, but where the game lacks is the in-between. The puzzles are uninteresting and getting from location to location feels lack luster and boring. But when you're not solving arbitrary puzzles or slogging to locations, the story is epic, the emotions are heavy, and the combat is brutal.
