Kratos may take on Valhalla in God of War 4

I’ve always enjoyed the God of War games. Never quite reaching the sort of odd worship and fandom that the series has attracted, but I’ve found Kratos’ bloody, brutal (and horribly sexist) escapades to be a mostly enjoyable waste of time.

After the last one, the prequel God of War: Ascension, I very much through the series needed a break. And after replaying God of War 3 in its remastered state, that feeling’s been cemented. What God of War really needs – if not an entirely new protagonist – is a new setting. After all, Kratos has already slaughtered the Olympians.

And it looks like it’ll be getting one. According to perpetual industry insider (Adding more credence to this than the usual “guy on the internet”) Shinob602, God of War will soon be taking on Scandinavian mythology.

Adding more fuel to the rumours is site Nerdleaks.com, who yesterday posted a series of images showing what seem to be God of War 4 concept art, all of it with a sort of Scandinavian flavour. Curiously, since posting the images, Nerdleaks has disappeared from the internet. Its page is defunct, and Its Twitter page has dispersed in to the ether.  Curious.

    I want to say I hope that GoW4 has better combat this time around, but then again, I can’t disagree with Jaffe not wanting combat to be so complex and deep that it takes away from the story and everything else. I’ll be into this, but I agree, GoW needs a new, grumpy protag.

      “GoW needs a new, grumpy protag.”

      ” if not an entirely new protagonist”

      The visuals for GOW3 was breathtaking. Never knew how powerful the PS3 was till I played that. Just imagine the scale of the environments and the size the battles will be on PS4

    The bearded Kratos looks awesome, looks like his brother. I would also love it if Kratos ripped Floki apart.

    Kratos destroyer of pantheons and a harbinger of monotheism? I love it. Now if only he could kill all the SJWs.
