    The monster within

    Control the rage

    His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus behind him, Kratos now lives in the realm of Norse deities and monsters.

    It’s in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive, and not only teach his son to do the same… but also prevent him from repeating the Ghost of Sparta’s bloodstained mistakes.

    This staggering reimagining of God of War combines all the hallmarks of the iconic series – brutal combat, epic boss fights and breathtaking scale – and fuses them with a powerful and moving narrative that re-establishes Kratos’ world.

    A bold new narrative

    As mentor and protector to a son determined to earn his respect, Kratos is faced with an unexpected opportunity to master the rage that has long defined him. Questioning the dark lineage he’s passed on to his offspring, he hopes to make amends for the shortcomings – and horrors – of his past.

    A darker world

    Set within the untamed forests, mountains and realms of Norse lore, steel yourself for a distinctively new and dangerous land complete with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters and gods. 

    Vicious combat

    With an intimate, over-the-shoulder free camera that brings the action closer than ever, combat is up close, frenetic and unflinching. Kratos’ powerful magic axe is a brutal weapon as well as a versatile tool for exploration. Always be on your guard.
