God of War Leaked Gameplay Footage Highlights Kratos And Son In Action (VIDEO)
There’s no doubt that many gamers are anticipating the upcoming installment of the God of War franchise. With Kratos’ son Atreus tagging along for the journey, the dynamic between the two is sure to be an interesting one. You know, especially when you’re right in the middle of combat. Luckily, a God of War leaked gameplay video recently dropped, givings fans a good look at what’s to come for The Ghost of Sparta and his child.
The video in question, which can be seen below, provides 9 minutes of God of War leaked gameplay footage captured from a PlayStation 4 Pro. Players get to see Kratos command his enchanted axe, throwing it about as if he were Thor, with the weapon returning to him after landing a blow on the enemy. Atreus can also be seen shooting arrows, hitting enemies with his bow, and even performing some sweet acrobatics off the backs of his foes. Check it out for yourself:
For those unfamiliar with what the upcoming God of War is all about, here is what’s to come:
From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for God of War. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive…And teach his son to do the same. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat; breathtaking scale; and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.
Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.
From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.
With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.”
