The Epic God of War Journey Has a Release Date and a New Trailer

The God of War franchise has mainly been based on Kratos‘ campaign for revenge against the cruel Gods that murdered his family.  So, it was interesting to see that the motives behind Santa Monica‘s latest God of War adventure were less about vengeance and more about fulfilling a promise and developing a relationship with Kratos’ son, Atreus.  A fact we didn’t know until this new Story trailer surfaced.

Thanks to this trailer, we now have a mission.  We know where the destination is and why we’re headed there.  Kratos and Atreus are headed to the highest peak in the realm to spread Atreus’ mother’s ashes.  Why?  That we don’t know yet, but what we do know is that their journey will find them crossing path with several eccentric and interesting species as Atreus discovers who his father really is and the power he has within himself.

Pre-order is available now, in which the reward for doing so are 3 different shield skins.  It’s not the best pre-order reward I’ve ever seen, but the game itself is the reward, so we’ll be happy nonetheless.

God of War is one our Most Anticipated Games of 2018 and trailers like these are why.  Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too very long to experience it as God of War releases April 20, 2018 only for Playstation 4!
