The new God of War has been five years in the making. It’s a big change for Kratos; not only has he switched over to a new Pantheon of gods to kill, but he’s also got a son in tow. In a world with new gods and monsters, Kratos must teach his son Atreus not only to survive but also prevent him from making the same mistakes. It’s got everything you’d expect from God of War and more – with a strong narrative, a dark world and unflinching, brutal combat.
Critics have already hailed it as one of the best games of this generation. In our review, we gave it a rare 10/10.
“God of War reinvigorates an ageing series with a Kratos you can care for, a host of new characters that are both exceptionally acted and wonderfully written with action and exploration that sets new standards for games of this ilk going forward. It’s a triumph in storytelling and design, making it one of the most exceptional experiences gaming has ever seen.”
For those of you yet to play the thing, we’ve got a Limited edition of the game to give away, thanks to our friends at Ster-Kinekor Entertainment:
The Limited Edition contains:
- God of War PS4 Game in a Steelbook Case embossed with Huldra Brothers symbol
- Physical Art Book by Dark Horse Comics
- Exile’s Guardian Shield
- Death’s Vow Armour Set
- PS4 Dynamic Theme
It’s similar, but not too similar, to the God of War press kit we recently unboxed
