The Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3 has come to a conclusion and what an event it was.

In 2018, God of War was released on the PS4 to universal acclaim and became a best seller overnight. It boosted sales of the PS4 console itself and proved to naysayers that singleplayer gaming isn’t dead. The 2018 edition of the game saw a lot of advancements made, from an emphasis on story and character to a semi-open world structure that encouraged exploring and sidequests. The new game took the action from Ancient Greece, where the original trilogy and its spin-offs took place and brought Kratos, the border-line villain from the original games and thrust him into the realm of Norse mythology, along with the responsibility of being a single dad. It was quite the shift and critics and fans loved it. Now with the sales and reception being so positive, it’s only a matter of time before a follow-up title is announced. So where should Kratos and his son explore next? While it seems that the next game will continue to be set in the Norse Pantheon, the studio is looking to the future and considering other locales to bring the God of War to.
Witness this! The new critically acclaimed God of War game is out today. Taking place years after the events of God of War III, the once angry demigod Kratos has now retired to the northern realms of Midgard (Scandinavia to us mortals) and lives in peace with his wife and son. Fans of the franchise will know how unusual that phrase is, considering Kratos is known for being a rather one dimensional character who was really good at killing, well-everything. That’s all different now though as the game reboots not only the gameplay, but the narrative structure and emphasis on storytelling. Part of the change actually comes thanks to cinema and specifically, the work of renowned director George Miller.
