Do you remember the original God of War trilogy shipped with a bunch of behind-the-scenes videos that you could watch once you completed the game? We were a little bit disappointed they never made it into last year’s critically acclaimed soft-reboot, but PlayStation’s gone one better: it’s shot a full-length documentary which will be published on YouTube soon.

Raising Kratos is pitched as a “cinematic journey of second chances rooted in family, sacrifice, struggle, and doubt”. It’s taken three years to put together, with more than 400 hours of footage recorded. We sincerely hope that a small portion of the documentary centres on director Cory Barlog’s sandwich making skills, as that was the secret highlight of God of War II.

“The ultimate goal was to go beyond a ‘making of’ piece and dig deeper into the experiences of those who spend relentless time and effort into making something great,” wrote Sony’s Scott Rohde on the PlayStation Blog. “All creative endeavours, especially those of this magnitude, require an incredible amount of dedication and focus that constantly toe the fine line that separates both success and failure.”
