With the overwhelming success of the recent God of War game, many fans might have wondered just how much blood sweat and tears went into its development. Now, Sony has released a new documentary on YouTube detailing the game’s five-year-long journey.
The two-hour-long behind the scenes God of War documentary, titled Raising Kratos, focuses on the trails and tribulations of the game’s development process. It’s filled with down to the wire tension and shows just how much of a risk developer Santa Monica took when going through the process of reimagining a new game in the much-loved franchise.
We all know how it ended, a great game filled with emotion, critical acclaim and a whole lot of awards. Now you can see just how much effort and resilience it took to get there.
With many believing that Kratos was no longer fit for the modern world, it took a lot of hard work and effort from Barlog and his team to prove everyone wrong, which, in the end, they did. As Raising Kratos shows, God of War turned out to be a resounding success, proving that Kratos still has a lot of fight left in him.
