Veteran stuntman Eric Jacobus was one of the motion capture actors for 2018's God of War — or more specifically, for Kratos himself. Jacobus has just recently uploaded an old video on his official YouTube channel that he actually sent to God of War developer Santa Monica Studio when he was auditioning for the role, all the way back in 2016.
The video shows Jacobus performing a range of crunchy-looking attacks in order to promote his vision of Kratos. He says that Santa Monica Studio had seen his 'Tekken IRL' series — videos in which Jacobus performs techniques taken from various Tekken characters as accurately as he can. He decided to create a similar move list for Kratos, and the result is a really fun watch — especially when Jacobus pulls out the axe.
