A Story of Father and Son
It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created...
- A Second Chance - 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.
- Vicious, Physical Combat - 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 gruelling.
- The Leviathan Axe - A new main weapon with new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.
- A Darker, More Elemental World - From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of PreViking 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.
