  • Kratos’ son will play as sort of the opposite of his father, by being very empathetic.

God of War 4 looks like it’s going to be an awesome game with a lot of new surprises in store for fans and newcomers alike.  Let us know in the comments how you feel about the new God of War game and what it will be like to see Kratos with his son. God of War 4 is set to launch April 20th on the PlayStation 4.

From Garrett Fuller’s “What We Loved About God of War”:

The story of a full-blown killing machine able to conquer amazing beasts and gods can get pretty dull. After years of amazing fight mechanics and epic battles, the new story of God of War immediately sucked us into the gameplay.  Having a son to train and living in the northern forests changes the tone of the game a lot. As a matter of fact, Kratos takes on a new weapon with his battle ax, a new look, and a much more fatherly tone.  He’s got a hipster beard, after all. Has he finally let go of his rage? We doubt it.
