The upcoming PS4 exclusive, God of War has seen major changes in comparison to its PS3 predecessors. In practice this means a pitch shift from the previous God of War games. What you witnessed in God of War's new Paris Games Week trailer is a smidgeon - a sliver - of the unflinching, intense, brutal, and often empowering new combat in God of War. The formula was attractive at first, and no game had more spectacle than God of War.
I really like the past God of War games so seeing the new game for the first time initially disappointed me. I hope the game turns out great but I suppose I'm one of the few people who was hoping for another more traditional God of War game. We all had to wait a long time to get a glimpse of this uninterrupted, unedited gameplay of this amazing Sony Santa Monica's upcoming God of War game.
Sony showed off flashy new footage today at their Paris Games Week event of the next entry into the God of War line of games. Kratos wasn't the only thing that felt tired in the God of War franchise, so Sony Santa Monica set out to freshen up the combat style, too.
The change in setting has given the God of War team a chance to spread their wings beyond the dark, dimly lit stone arenas and stormy skies of the previous games and into the fresh air of the Norse outdoors. The attention to detail is astonishing, right down to the stitching on Kratos' leather armor and the chips on the edge of his axe.
The now straitlaced Kratos, who has a second chance at being a father again, makes yet another appearance via a new trailer showing off various combat maneuvers in God of War The April due game by SIE Santa Monica Studio is currently slated to exclusively hit PS4 and PS4 Pro.
Last year Sony unveiled a new God of War title, and what makes this particular title is that not only will it feature Kratos (which is to be expected), but it will also feature his son and based on the gameplay videos, gamers will sort of be playing both characters which does make for pretty unique gameplay for the franchise.
In practice this means a pitch shift from the previous God of War games. What you witnessed in God of War's new Paris Games Week trailer is a smidgeon - a sliver - of the unflinching, intense, brutal, and often empowering new combat in God of War. The formula was attractive at first, and no game had more spectacle war than God of War.
As you level up and upgrade your abilities (spending XP will grant you new attacks, just like previous games in the series), weapons and armor (applying rune stones will grant you magical attack abilities and spending hacksilver will buy and upgrade Kratos and Atreus' armor, axe and bow), you become more formidable, able to take on multiple enemies at once.
As with the games that came before it the combat is exquisite and gives you the sense of being almost unstoppable without actually making you overpowered. The latest and upcoming God of War game is quite different from its predecessors on PS2 and PS3. Not that the series was ever known for its story, but the earlier games felt like there was more to them then blind revenge.
Now that said this gameplay is being removed due to copyright issues from most of the sites, but we have made available to you the video. For Sony Santa Monica to change the very fabric of God of War is a phenomenal gamble - but one that, for the most part, pays off.
In this franchise "reimagining", a major gameplay change is that Kratos no longer uses his signature double-chained blades , but a magical battle axe God of War now uses an over-the-shoulder free camera , with the entire game done in one shot , as opposed to the fixed cinematic camera of the previous entries.
God of War isn't just Santa Monica Studio doing something different for the sake of variety (although the series did clearly need a shake up after how dull Ascension seemed). PlayStation has officially released a short gameplay trailer of Santa Monica Studio's upcoming installment in the God of War franchise.
