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.
What did you think of Kratos' moves in God of War? Try not to pull a muscle in the comments section below.
LOVE IT! Channelling the energy of every 80's child into adulthood. Dreams do exist.
Not to go off topic but I've heard that GoWR might get leaked next week, apparently it's from the same source that leaked TLOU1. People might need to take precautions on social media.
Somehow when you see video game fighting moves done IRL, you start to wonder how any video game character actually survives the first fight in the game
I'm picturing an enemy watching the ballet moves and just skewering him "Han shot first" style....
The axe moves are great though!
OMG I dont know why, but I love this.
@AdamNovice Yeah well, Sony and Santa better actually show the game then and get ahead of it. As they have shown next to nothing on or about this game.
@KundaliniRising333 Whatever mate.
@KundaliniRising333. They Dont have to show it. God of war ragnarok is going to be a masterpiece. 🐐. 👑 just like god of war 2018. 🐐 👑. Word up son
@AdamNovice Do you think Sony will share a short gameplay video after said leak, like they did with The Last of Us: Part 1?
@KidBoruto @AdamNovice Nah, we probably won't be seeing Ragnarok until after TLOU: PI releases. Sony seems set on showing just one game at a time these days instead of having multiple upcoming titles share the spotlight.
It will be interesting if Ragnarok gameplay really does leak, though.
