If you haven’t seen it yet, here is the God of War Story Trailer:
From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for one of gaming’s most recognizable icons. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
You can pre-order God of War for PlayStation 4 from Best Buy and get it by release (Friday, April 20, 2018.) You also get a pre-order bonus of 3 shield skins for in-game. Other pre-order options at BestBuy.com are the Stone Mason Edition, Collector’s Edition, or God of War Limited Edition Console Bundle.
Note: The game is called God of War, which can be confusing so it is generally referred to as God of War 4 (it is the sequel to 2010’s God of War III) or God of War PS4 (it is a PlayStation 4 exclusive). Technically, it is the eighth installment of the God of War series.
