Game Overview

Bold New Beginning

His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… And teach his son to do the same. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat, breathtaking scale, and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.

A Second Chance

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.



A Darker, More Elemental World

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.


Vicious, Physical Combat

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

The Lost Pages Of Norse Myth

Washed upon our shores from a distant land, a world-weary ghost begins life anew.

Two battle-born companions bear fruit, an unlucky heir to a cursed life of power.

Whence three become two, a new journey begins, borne from sorrow, from duty, from love, from ash.

Over the centuries, some stories from the book were lost to time. There are those who speculate that this was no accident—that these “lost pages” were removed by an unseen hand.

It is whispered these pages tell the saga of a vengeful god from a distant land, traveling with his young son on a journey borne of ash.
