Kratos made his grand return to video games in during Sony’s PlayStation E3 2016 press conference in the latest entry in the God of War franchise.
However, this is not the God of War you remember. Santa Monica can’t be ripping off on Devil May Cry forever, especially when that genre is not in vogue anymore. Long gone are the hardcore action days, this is an open-world title with third-person action more along the lines of Tomb Raider, Dark Souls, or Horizon Zero Dawn. It even has a tag along kid and a bow and arrow!
One hit stealth kills!
But hey, at least Kratos rocks that epic beard as he heads up north to take on figures of Norse mythology, and he hasn’t lost his penchant for horrific violence. He is the “Dad of War!”
Look for more God of War on the PlayStation 4. No subtitle required.
