A gameplay trailer for the new God of War was shown during Sony’s PlayStation media briefing at E3 2017. The game was first introduced at last year’s E3 convention.
The trailer is called “Be A Warrior,” and once again follows Kratos on this new adventure in a new world with his son. Read more about the game and watch the gameplay trailer below.
WHAT LIES AHEAD:
It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created…
A NEW BEGINNING:
His vengeance against the gods of Olympus far behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the lands of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… and teach his son to do the same.
As mentor and protector to a son determined to earn his respect, Kratos is faced with an unexpected opportunity to master the rage that has long defined him. Questioning the dark lineage he’s passed on to his son, he hopes to make amends for the shortcomings of his past.
MIDGARD AND BEYOND:
Set within the untamed forests, mountains, and realms of Norse lore, God of War features a distinctly new setting with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods.
VICIOUS, PHYSICAL COMBAT:
With an intimate, over-the-shoulder free camera that brings the action closer than ever, combat in God of War is up close, frenetic, and unflinching. Kratos’ axe—powerful, magic and multi-faceted—is a brutal weapon as well as a versatile tool for exploration.
A release date has not yet been set for God of War, but you can pre-order on PS4 now.
