Everyone expected it and now it’s finally here, God of War is coming to the PlayStation 4! However, it appears that the game is a reboot or a semi-sequel to the original games. Sony showed off a long gameplay segment of what appears to be early on in the game.
While the segment did not reveal any elements of the story, there’s alot that can be inferred from it.The game clearly isn’t in the Greek setting of the original games, instead opting for what appears to be a northern European setting perhaps setting up for Norse gods? The playable character appears to be Kratos, as there’s a gameplay feature that has the word “Spartan” in it. It’s not revealed how the iconic character survived his death in God of War III.
The game is also simply titled God of War, implying it won’t have much connection to the original games.
