The PlayStation YouTube channel has just uploaded the first part of a series of director commentary videos on the PS4 exclusive of the moment, God of War. The video, embedded above, features Cory Barlog talking over the first ten minutes of the game.

It offers some fresh insight on the uncharacteristically quiet, slow opener. Barlog speaks about everything from the importance of quieter moments to taking inspiration from Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando. It's worth a quick watch if you're keen for some behind the scenes chit chat. Watch out for the odd spoiler, though.
