God of War- Be A Warrior E3 2017 Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

One of the biggest PlayStation 4 exclusive title God of War received a new trailer during PlayStation’s E3 2017 conference, giving a early 2018 release window. Kratos is set to embark on a new journey in the realm of the Norse gods and monster. This time he’s not alone as he tries to teach his son Atreus on how to become a warrior.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A Second Chance

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

A Darker, More Elemental World

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.

Vicious, Physical Combat

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.
