With the release of the new God of War just around the corner, Sony released a new video that focuses on the game’s progression system. It’s surprisingly deep.
The God of War video reveals how players will be able to customise both Kratos and his abilities to suit their own gameplay style. Everything from Atreus’ core abilities to Kratos’ abilities and even their cool-down timers are customisable, giving players greater freedom to create their own experience. As players progress through the game, they will unlock a variety of skills from the game’s new skill trees. Some of these tie into hand-to-hand combat with others affecting the abilities of Kratos’ axe. Developer Sony Santa Monica wanted to give each player the opportunity to create their own unique gameplay experience with each player’s Kratos’ being different.
Sony Santa Monica also revealed that the next God of War game will continue to take place in Norse Mythology. It seems that the next game is already in production and that Kratos will have to face off against many more Norse gods before he’ll be able to move on to the next pantheon.
