God of War gets personal for the PS4

Sony’s God of War series has always been a hugely important IP for the company, and for various PlayStation platforms, so rebooting it was a risky proposition for sure.

Thankfully, Sony’s Santa Monica Studio appears to be on the right track with the game… by making Kratos’ journey a bit more personal by having his son tag along (and not be a burden, apparently) and toning down the (visible) rage just a tad.  The setting, switching from Greek to Norse mythology is an interesting choice as well, and one with a lot of promise.  Oh, and it looks insanely good, which is to be expected.

See the E3 trailer and screens below, and stay tune for more info as the early 2018 release date inches closer.
