Kratos has a softer side in the new God of War for PS4, but he is still a savage killer who brutalizes people and creatures with his new Leviathan axe and other weapons. With development on the game finished, Sony has now released a new gameplay video that shows Kratos and his son Atreus doing battle with a huge troll and more.
In addition to the combat, the video shows off the new, single-cut camera system and treasure chests you’ll discover in the world. We also get another look at the game’s stunning-looking visuals, which continue to surprise and impress. Unlike past games in the PlayStation series, this one is a Norse mythology story set in Scandinavia.
For more on God of War, you can check out this video that shows off Kratos’ new Leviathan axe and hear from developers about why they went with it instead of his familiar arsenal.
Sony announced that God of War had gone gold earlier this month, meaning the game is ready to be sent off for manufacturing. It is scheduled to release for PS4 on April 20. It will launch alongside a special edition PS4 Pro bundle that features a God of War-themed console and some digital content. It also gets a performance mode with PS4 Pro even if you don’t have a 4K display.
