God of War Walkthrough – Part 1
Welcome to our God of War walkthrough video series. Over the next few days, we’ll be posting several videos which contain commentary and a full look at the juggernaut that is God of War. Please note these videos contain spoilers, so you have been warned! Without further delay enjoy Part 1 of our God of War walkthrough series.
God of War is the latest entry into the series. A soft reboot, Kratos is now much older and wiser, living in the realm of norse mythology. Joined by his young son, Atreus, Kratos sets out to spread the ashes of Atreus’ recently deceased mother, only for the world to strike out against him, and for Kratos to strike back.
The game abandons the top down cinematic cameras and hack-and-slash combat for an over the shoulder third person approach, now giving players a powerful axe and shield and relying on proper combat tactics as opposed to the button mashing of old.
Kratos himself has undergone a massive – and important – shift in character; he is now calmer and wiser but still retains his potent badass streak. Puzzle solving and visceral combat return from previous iterations, but God of War now also features customization options akin to standard RPG games, as well as numerous collectibles to find.
We reviewed God of War last week and said the following: “God of War isn’t just a great God of War game, it’s the best so far. Sony Santa Monica has clearly put love into this latest title of the series and given both longtime fans and newcomers a monumental gaming achievement. Put your fears to rest – yes, Kratos is getting older, but even after all this time, he’s better than ever.”
God of War releases on April 20th, exclusively on the PlayStation 4. For more information, check the game’s official website.
