Reimagined New God Of War Announced; Gets Gameplay Trailer & Amazing Visuals
A reimagined new God of War has been announced by Sony's Santa Monica Studio.
We know it was a matter of time before Sony would finally reveal a new God of War, and during Sony's E3 Press Conference, the house of Sony finally showed off an amazing gameplay demonstration of the game. Check it out below:
The new God of War isn't a simple reboot of the series, but the game's gameplay has been totally reimagined. According to Sony, they didn't want to just retell God of War's origin story, but they wanted to allow "players a fresh perspective and a new tactile experience while delving deeper into the emotional journey of Kratos to explore the compelling drama that unfolds when an immortal demigod makes a decision to change".
"For Kratos, this change means breaking the cycle of violence, distrust and deception that his family, the Greek pantheon, perpetuated for so long. That cycle drove a whole host of bad decisions – the ill-fated deal with Ares, the murder of his family and a rage fueled descent into madness and vengeance that ultimately ended with the epic destruction of Olympus
It also means learning how to control his rage, the intensely turbulent monster that lives within him, steering him down ever-darker paths. Kratos needed to figure out how to put the monster back in the box, how to control when he does and does not let that monster out.
Kratos’ rage has provoked a ton of bad decisions in his life, so I was fascinated to see what would happen if he actually made a good one. What would that look like? How would he struggle with this very difficult and unfamiliar road? And more importantly, why would he do this?"
"Change is hard, but through it all we persevere, getting back up each time we are knocked down and celebrating each breakthrough, knowing that this journey ends in the realization of a collective vision – a great change in something we all hold very dear – a chance for us all to be better", writes Sony's Santa Monica Studio creative director, Cory Barlog, on the official PlayStation Blog.
A release date for the new God of War hasn't been revealed yet, but as always, we will update when we learn more.
