  • News God of War PS4 Pro Lets You Pick Between Resolution or Performance

    The choice is yours

    God of War’s guaranteed to look stunning on the standard PlayStation 4, but if you do happen to have a PS4 Pro – or you’re picking up that spiffing new limited edition – then you will have some options to choose how you want to play it. There’ll be a 4K option, of course, which will checkerboard to 2160p as previously...

  • News Here's a Fascinating Look at Kratos' New Fighting Style in God of War PS4

In this latest behind the scenes video, we get a better look at how combat has been taken apart and put back together. This is where motion capture performer and...

  • News God of War Explains Atreus' Role During Combat

    Word up, son

    The challenge for games like God of War is incorporating a computer controlled companion that isn’t a hindrance. Atreus, the son of Kratos, plays a huge role in Sony Santa Monica’s latest and greatest – but this isn’t the drawn-out escort mission that it could have been. Instead, the youngster is a capable warrior in his own...

  • News No Load Screens, No Camera Cuts in God of War Seemed 'Impossible' Says Dev

    But they pulled it off

    In case you didn't already know, God of War is delivered as one unbroken shot from start to finish on PlayStation 4. The camera never cuts away, and there are no load screens.

  • News God of War Is Shaping Up to Be PS4 Pro's Next Tour-de-Force

    By the Gods

    While the PlayStation 4 Pro may not be the most powerful console on the market anymore, Sony’s first-party teams have always done an outstanding job of blurring the lines between more powerful boxes.

  • News No, God of War Won't Have Microtransactions, Despite Recent Rumours

    Director debunks

    Earlier today, rumours suggesting that God of War may have microtransactions started to spread. Said rumours were based on a very blurry, angled photograph of an in-game menu which supposedly showed two types of currency at the top right of the screen. Inconclusive to say the least. Naturally, this caused some knee-jerk reactions,...

    Axe a lot

  • News God of War Artist Rubbishes Downgrade Claims

    The Internet's being stupid again

    God of War is comfortably shaping up to be one of the visual treats of 2018, but that hasn’t stopped some forum frequenters to claim that the graphics have been downgraded.

  • News God of War PS4 Release Date Finally Confirmed, New Trailer Released

    Sony spills the beans

    We feel like we've been reporting for far too long on supposed release dates for the new God of War, but we at last have confirmation from Sony itself.

  • News Amazon Lists God of War PS4 Collector's Edition for April

    When is this game actually releasing?

    It really feels like Sony should announce the release date for God of War sharpish, as rumours are sprouting out of all corners of the internet.

  • News God of War Won't Have a Season Pass

    No slicing up of content

  • News God of War's Stone Mason Edition Appears on GameStop

    A godly amount of extras

It's interesting...

  • Rumour God of War Release Date Leak Points to 22nd March Again

    Norse to know

    God of War antihero Kratos must have put a gagging order on the latest game’s release date, because Sony is remaining tight-lipped about the title’s launch. However, hot on the heels of a PlayStation Store leak which pointed to a 22nd March release, a Portuguese retailer has plumped up for the exact same date. Suspicious. Now...

  • News Two Norse Dwarfs Will Upgrade Your Arsenal in God of War

    Blacksmith buddies

    God of War’s progression system has been more or less the same across six or seven games: you collect red orbs, feed them to your weapon of choice, and reap the rewards. However, the series’ forthcoming PlayStation 4 soft-reboot will handle things a little differently. According to an article in Official PlayStation Magazine...

  • News God of War PS4 Will Be the Most Brutal Entry Yet

    Ouch

    Sony’s upcoming God of War soft-reboot will be the “most brutal” entry yet, PlayStation marketing bigwig Asad Qizilbash said at the GameStop Expo this weekend.
