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.
