In a world where most high-selling video games are multiplayer experiences, Sony has been a god-send to singer player gamers. Games such as The Last of Us, Uncharted, and God of War have made sure single-player gamers stick to Sony’s gaming consoles. Sony has hit another milestone with the release of God of War. God of War has sold 3.1 million copies, making it the fastest selling PlayStation 4 exclusive of all time.
God of War is one of Sony’s most profitable franchises. Gamers take on the role of Kratos, who became the god of war after killing Aries. In previous God of War games, Kratos was on a murder-spree, killing the gods who he thinks have wronged him for so many years.
The newest edition of God of War is a reboot of sorts, resetting the number of the series to zero and changing the setting. The game series have shifted from Greek mythology to Norse mythology. Another major difference in the new God of War game is Kratos’s companion, his son.
The fact that Kratos’s son is along for the journey creates an incredible narrative. As fans of the series know, Kratos’s original killing spree started after the death of his daughter. The involvement of Kratos’s child makes for an anxiety filled narrative. Anytime Kratos’s son is in danger, it creates a scenario where the gamer is sitting on the edge of their seat, waiting for Kratos to loose his cool should his kid come to harm.
God of War is available in stores now, should you wish to see this incredible story for yourself. As previously mentioned, the game is exclusively available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.
There have not been a lot of great video games being released recently. There are many big titles that are in development. However, they will not be released until late in 2018 or early 2019. The first highly anticipated title to debut in 2018 is “God of War” from Santa Monica Studio. This game is everything that fans hoped it would be and so much more. The graphics are absolutely stunning. The game play and story are beyond what many video game experts thought possible. The bad news is that “God of War” is only available on the PS4. There are no plans to release the game on other platforms any time soon. Therefore, people who own a Nintendo Switch or an Xbox will be left in the cold for the time being.
The game continues the story from previous “God of War” games. However, the character of Kratos has developed quite a bit over the years. He has now truly become one of the great video game characters in history. Playing this game is like playing a movie. The way that the characters move is so lifelike that you will often forget you are playing a game. One of the best things about this game is the diversity of the various levels. They are all completely different and have their own unique aspects. There is so much to see and do on each level that it will take you many hours to explore everything. It is not a surprise that this game was in development for the better part of five years. You can see all of the time and effort that the people at Santa Monica Studio put into it. It is truly a masterpiece.
Not surprisingly, the end of the game leaves open the possibility for a sequel. People who like fighting games that are set in ancient time periods are sure to love everything “God of War” has to offer them.
