Cory Barlog game director of the God of War PS4 told that the next installment of this game would probably be based on the Egyptian and Mayan mythology. And by next game, we mean God of War 5, the game that follows God of War 4 (PS4).
Egyptian and Mayan Mythology are the most popular in the gaming community. Fans of God of War want to see Kratos rip part known figure of both of these mythologies.
The latest installment of God of War that is due in 2018 on PS4 with focus on the Norse mythology and it could very well be the first and last time if the God of War 5 moves on to other settings.
As we can see that few of the ideas have been taken from Thor like his hammer Mjolnir and Kratos Axe in this game have some similarities in the way they function. They are deadly and are called back by who is wielding it. We hopefully will come forth by different GODS in this part as well like we used to have in the Greek mythology.
God of War’s story isn’t the only thing to have changed since its early days, with the new game including a greater focus on exploration, and a closer view to try and tell a more personal story.
For example, we will explore the relationship dynamics of Kratos and his son.
Shannon Studstill in her interview said:
What became apparent to me was that we were watching this franchise wane a bit. It was getting old. The storyline with Kratos being the diehard badass – I think people were starting to say, ‘What’s next?’ I felt like, in order to reinvent, we really needed to turn a lot of things around.
Barlog has also said that the God of War’s campaign will take around 25-35 hours to beat, making it significantly larger than previous games in the series.
God of War 4 is said to be released in the “early 2018” probably in March. A final release date for the game should be announced soon. Pre-orders for God of War 4 are live but we are hearing that they are very soft.
