  • 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.

  • 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.
