God of War for the PS4 is one of the most anticipated upcoming exclusive and Sony has very high hopes for it. They are expecting it to be the most brutal installment in the series and will blow people away!
Sony Interactive Entertainment Vice President of Marketing Asad Qizilbash was the one who spoke about this and regarded the game as one of the best they have ever witnessed. He spoke at the Gamestop Expo and told the media that Santa Monica have done a “phenomenal” job with God of War and they are really impressed with the delivery of the game. He added that Sony is looking forward to the release of the game and they are sure that it will be enjoyed by everyone!
He also stated the focus on combat has shifted from one vs many enemies and reduced down to one vs one or two at most, it will be interesting to see how this change influences the gruesome combat that the series is famous for. This change might result in a more fluid and dramatic combat experience when compared to the previous games.
In other news, it has been confirmed that our companion in the game Atreus will be of definite use throughout the adventure and he will surely hold his own along the way. It was a major concern for the fans whether if Atreus was actually going to be useful in the game or not or if we would have to escort him through the whole game.
“Atreus moves on the battlefield on his own. He’s competent enough to get out of the way when he pulls the attention of the enemies. There’s a risk/reward system there. You can use him in battle but, if you do it too much, he could get overrun and knocked out.”
God Of War is currently deep in development so there is no official release date confirmed but it will launch sometime late in 2018. Let us know if you’re excited about the game in the comments section below and be sure to stay tuned!
