The release date for the upcoming action-adventure video game "God of War" has just been revealed. As such, anticipating fans can now pre-order the much-awaited eighth installment of the franchise.

Amazon offers a pre-order for "God of War" for $59.99. The online shop claimed, as the release button placeholder indicated, that "God of War" is coming to the markets on December 29, 2017.Sony Santa Monica Studio, on the other hand, has not yet revealed any specific month and date on when exactly is "God of War" is going to be released; but "God of War" is expected to hit markets sometime in 2017.

The media outlet further reported that the studio has no specific plans for the release date of "God of War" as the team is still currently working on how to unveil the game to the general public. Likewise, "God of War" director Cory Barlog previously tweeted that Sony will not announce any further details at the upcoming PlayStation Experience this December.

Although "God of War" is still without a release date, fans can expect the game to come on PS4, as traditionally practiced. The eighth game of the series will break away from the Greek pantheon and will feature Kratos raising a son in the mountains of Scandinavia. This means that fans of "God of War" will see a second era that is loosely based on Norse mythology.

Far from expectations, however, that the upcoming game will be called "God of Wars 4," it will only be called "God of War" considering that it will not be just a soft reboot of the origin story but a completely reimagined adventure.

"I wanted to reimagine the gameplay, give players a fresh perspective and a new tactile experience while delving into the emotional journey of Kratos to explore the compelling drama that unfolds when an immortal demigod makes a decision to change," the "God of War" director Cory Barlog in a PlayStation blog post.

Barlog also revealed that more demos for "God of War" will be released in the near feature as soon as the game is completed. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
