The team at Santa Monica Studios found it as a great honor to be working on such a long-running series and for them it was a special honor and responsibility. According to the Playstation Blog by Creative Director Corey Barlog, they realized at an early time that major changes had to be made in "God Of War" to make the game truly memorable.

The team at Santa Monica Studios did not want a simple reboot for the "God Of War".They wanted to improve the gameplay and give it a new perspective for the players. They wanted a tactile experience where Kratos, the demi god, can show more of his emotional journey as he decides to change for the better.

The game the "God Of War" will be focusing on a certain character. Kratos will be featured as a human in the game. He will be outside the realm of the gods and will explore the area of Norse Mythology with his son. The news surprised fans all over and made them look forward to the game and figure out, who the boy's mother is.

The gameplay features more tracking, archery and team building as the "God Of War" of Kratos has to guide his son and teach hom how to survive the harsh world. According to the report at DigitalSpy, theories about how the "God Of War" could have spawned Thor came about after fans noticed lightning coming out of the child's bow and arrow.

With a new world, the "God Of War" will also be facing new opponents, from huge bugs, wolves or trolls. In the latest gameplay trailer hidden secrets were found like the sinister apparation that's following the "God Of War" or maybe even a huge snake who in the Norse Mythology is the Midgard Serpent.

After the announcement of a new "God Of War", people were itching to hear about an official release date. Unfortunately though, Sony did not reveeal the magic numbers. Instead their webstie simply shows that it is still TBC. "God Of War" will still be exclusively playable for the PS4, unless something big happens, and the team at Sony Santa Monica Studios decides to change this.
