What’s up PlayStation Nation,

2018 is set to kick off right as it’s confirmed that God Of War is set to release on consoles this spring as it has been officially announced via the PS Blog where Sony Santa Monica Alum Cory Barlog States:

I would love to write a long blog post here but, apparently, I have a game to get done by 4/20 so I gotta get back to work as soon as possible.

God of War (PS4)

First, let me say that this is my favorite release day of my entire career. If I live to be 100, I do not think I will be able to top this release day.

There has been a long journey just to reach this point, so it’s a little bittersweet to think that we are only a few months away from that journey finally coming to an end. While I am sad, I am also excited because it means everyone will get their hands on this crazy adventure we have been crafting for nearly five years!

You can check out the trailer below!

So, April 20, 2018…mark the date on your calendar, people. Clear that schedule, tell your significant other they are wonderful, because that is always a nice thing to do, and then wonder what you will do with all that free time you have now that you don’t need to keep asking me when the release date is.

Thank you everyone for your continued support of our game-making addiction. I will do my best to keep sharing information as we head towards launch.

…But wait, there’s more! I’m proud to share our limited Collector’s Editions and Digital Deluxe Edition, whose every component is connected back to the Norse universe and story of our game.

New God of War Trailer revealed at Paris Games Week 2017

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Today PlayStation’s recent press conference at Paris Games Week 2017 has kept gamers busy with talks of games like Detroit: Becoming Human, Ghost of Tsushima to name a few. Well the conversations will continue as we’ve also gotten a chance to view new footage of the highly anticipated God Of War for PS4. So far based on the trailer we still have yet to hear any information in regards to a release date which Sony has been really reluctant to reveal any dates to avoid release date fatigue, A new approach to titles they know are highly anticipated. As of know we only have an Early 2018 release date window. With that being said many are anxious to find out more and the current situation of Kratos so here’s what we’ve gathered so far:

More than seven years after felling Zeus and the Greek pantheon , Kratos is set to return in this iteration of the series. Taking place many years after the events of the original games, Kratos now has a son Atreus of which we know little about of as well as the identity of his mother.


(Editors Opinion: I am interested in this iteration of God Of War as I’ve previously been seldom intrigued with the previous entries. However with this upcoming God Of War I am interested in pursuing more of an understanding of the title. And I simply cannot wait to get my hands on this upcoming gem!)

What do you think of the trailer? Are you looking to pick this up. Does the lack of a solid release date hurt your momentum or decision making process for this title as a purchase? Comment below let us know. For news like this and more make sure to keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

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.

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.
