God Of War PS4 will feature Kratos going on a journey with his son Atreus, who the devs claim to be a competent companion along the journey, and game director has revealed that players will have to make some choices in the game regarding Kratos’ son which will develop the characters.
Speaking with Official PlayStation Magazine, game director Cory Barlog talked about more about the new take on the Kratos in God Of War PS4. According to Barlog, players will have to make choices which will also require players to steer Kratos in terms of guiding his son.
As you move through the game you make choices about what you, or Kratos, wants for Atreus, about how you’re going to develop each of these characters. When you really extrapolate, it’s like this is about sort of putting loadouts and outfits on characters, but when you divorce it from that, and you’re in the moment, you start to realize it’s very similar to that moment in Mad Max when he’s got the can of dog food and he’s determining whether he’s going to eat all of it and get the energy, or if he’s going to give some of it to the dog, and he’s going to do that because he wants to be able to sleep, and if he has the dog and he’s well fed he can sleep and the dog will warn him if danger approaches.
It’s kind of like, you know, it’s sort of, again, like parenting. This idea of making choices for yourself and making choices for your kid, how you’re going to sort of load balance.
While God Of War PS4 is not even out yet but, director Cory Barlog has already planned multiple sequels after this.
God Of War is an upcoming action-adventure game in development at Sony Santa Monica Studio and will launch sometime in 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
