God of War released on PlayStation 4 back in 2018. it is one of the best games released in recent years and a definite step forward for the series, as highlighted by Kai in his review.
God of War is one of those rare titles that define the console generation. Kratos’ fighting has been refined to its very best and the lands of Midgard are filled with wonders of all manner to explore and defeat. It’s been nearly the entire lifespan of the PlayStation 4 console since Kratos has seen new adventure but the wait has been absolutely worth it. Santa Monica Studio’s journey is still far from over, but they’ve once again shown why Kratos is one of gaming’s greatest anti-heroes.
God of War is now available on PlayStation 4 worldwide. A sequel is currently in development for PlayStation 5.
