Following its extended showing at Sony’s Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing, the studio has unveiled the boxart for the upcoming God of War for Playstation 4 featuring Kratos and his son in a boat. In case you are unfamiliar, the boxart features exactly the same artwork that appeared as marketing material ahead of E3. The boxart is definitely a cool-looking boxart that shows Kratos’ signature axe and shield also made an appearance in the E3 demo.
The gameplay footage that we saw at E3 2017 showed Kratos accompanied by his son in a boat discussing ‘The Truth’. In addition to an extended interaction between father and son, the gameplay reveal also focused on enemy encounters, combat, the world serpent, and the mention of unknown gods that do not take kindly to the outsiders. The footage also featured a woman who warns Kratos about the gods whom Kratos has angered. As far as this woman is concerned, Santa Monica has yet to divulge her identity.
For those of you who missed it, you can check out the gameplay footage found in link attached above.
The upcoming God of War releases on Playstation 4 and PS4 Pro sometime in Early 2018. Sony has yet to confirm a finalized release date. You can expect it to launch somewhere during the Q1 of the next year.
