According to Cory Barlog of Sony Santa Monica, they have no plans for a God of War 4 season pass. He confirmed this over on his official Twitter page, saying that God of War 4 season pass isn’t happening. In a time when monetizing games via aggressive microtransactions and shallow season pass content has become a norm, not releasing a season pass for a major IP is admirable.
He also mentioned that God of War 4 story is “awesome” but he confirmed his bias as well; so we have to play the game to see how the events play out. For now, we know that God of War will explore the Norse Mythology and players get to know Kratos’ son.
Popular Norse gods are expected to appear but none have so far been confirmed by Sony Santa Monica. However, the release trailer for the game may give us a look at some of them. More about the game will be revealed in the coming weeks.
No season pass. As for the story questions – you will have to wait and play the game to see how it all shakes out. I just finished another play-through last night around midnight and it was still awesome! I’m totally biased, though.
