God of War (PS4)


#1

Releases next Friday (20th)

Kratos’ story continues, however the setting has completely changed to the world of Norse Mythology.

Also something absolutely amazing about this GoW is that it’s all one take, no camera cuts or loading screens (Unless you die I think, that wouldn’t really work otherwise)

Here’s the latest trailers :slight_smile:

Difficulty and HUD options

Give Me A Story: lets you experience the story without too much of a difficult gameplay challenge. You won’t be taking a gondola to the top of the highest peaks in all the Norse Realms, but you will have a far greater margin for error in enemy encounters.

Give Me A Balanced Experience: is the mode we’d recommend most players start with. The name says it all. We’ve tuned it to deliver a balanced, challenging playthrough.

Give Me A Challenge: is harder and less forgiving. It is recommended for players who find action games extremely intuitive, and for confident long-time God of War series veterans who’ve beat past games on harder difficulties.

Give Me God of War: is the sort of thing reserved for people who wrestle polar bears in their undies. Maybe not quite that, but it’s the most difficult mode in the game. We haven’t just made you weaker or enemies stronger; we’ve looked at enemy behaviors and placements in encounters as well, tweaking everything to make it as threatening as possible. Best of all, you cannot change difficulties once you start a game on this mode, so if you suddenly realize you’re in way over your head, you’ll have to start a new game. Don’t be sorry, be better?

We’ve included what we’re calling Immersion Mode. This will cut things down to just the minimal absolute necessary HUD elements.

In addition to this, we’ve added an extra mode that allows you to customize which of these HUD elements you want ON, OFF or enabled via the touch pad which brings up that element for a short duration. This will enable players to truly customize their experience by adjusting visibility to HUD elements like enemy health bars, compass and enemy off screen indicators.

This adds to the list of games that makes a PS4 a must for gamers, seriously, it’s absolutely amazing.

I’m surprised it took me this long to stumble across this inevitable crossover :smiley:

Looks brilliant, considering picking it up for Kate’s PS4. Watched a bunch of the story content over the weekend and was impressed by the quality of it, the graphics and combat too.


#6

I’m busting to play this but want to wait until I get a 4k tv, just trying to find one at a price that I can justify

It’s absolutely sublime! The combat is so damn fun it’s insane!

I think this link will work … (Colours will be off as the PS4 cannot capture HDR content and auto down to SDR)

I bought a ps4 again just to play this.

Not disappointed. One of the finest single player games I’ve ever played. Barely dented it after a weekend on it, and it’s just got the sweet difficulty balance between fun and challenging on normal.

What I really love about it is that it’s got no “DLC BUY NOW” or loot boxes or shortcuts…it’s old skool: explore, do challenges, unlock stuff using the game.

And it’s staggeringly pretty.

Finally finished it.

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve played a game that completely drew me in. The storyline is paced really well, the lore and myth of the world is engaging and the acting is top notch.

Genuinely saddened when it ended, and cannot wait to see what’s in store for the future for this series. It’s by far my favourite game in the last ten years.
