Damn, Sony brought the big guns early. After a five-minute orchestral opening—like, seriously, a full-sized orchestra—Sony finally brought up the screen to reveal a new God of War (no subtitle), complete with scary ol’ Kratos, now bearded and training…his son?
That’s certainly how it appears. Looks like Kratos has a kid now, which wouldn’t be a problem except they stumble into a twenty-foot tall troll and the eight-year-old kid refuses to fight it. And wow, you thought your parents were hard to impress.
I’m weirdly excited, though—in a way I haven’t been for a God of War game in a long time now. The game looks strangely emotional and personal, which are never words I would’ve associated with the god-killing series before.
