God Of War Unedited Gameplay Footage Leaked Online
God of War is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4 on April 20. This is going to be the first new God of War game to be released in 5 years. The last game in the God of War series was God of War: Ascension which was released in 2013 for PS3. What is interesting about this new God of War game is it is the reboot and Cory Barlog is returning as the Game Director.
Santa Monica’s God of War title coming soon to PlayStation 4 has everyone excited to see all of the various changes with the latest title. Seeing Kratos and his son in action among a completely different mythology will be a huge treat for both veteran fans and newcomers to the series, and now we’ve got a closer look at what’s to come because new gameplay footage has been leaked ahead of schedule to show off the unedited experience.
The leaked gameplay footage (Video Above) appears to be early on in the game, as tutorial prompts appear on the screen for the player. In the footage, Kratos and his son Atreus are attacked by creatures, though the Ghost of Sparta is able to make quick work of them with his Leviathan Axe.
This new gameplay footage not only shows Kratos killing some monsters, but it also offers another look at how his son Atreus will be integrated into the combat. In the footage, we see Kratos give Atreus orders to shoot his bow at both a boss enemy as well as some unsuspecting foes they manage to sneak up on. We also get to see both Atreus and Kratos battling it out against monsters in close-quarters combat, which looked especially brutal and intense.
Beyond combat, this new footage also gives fans a look at how XP works in the new God of War. It appears that Kratos will earn XP for a variety of actions, like defeating enemies in combat as well as finding special items in the environment. This XP can be spent in Brok’s Shop to upgrade Kratos’s abilities and weapons.
Overall, this new footage of God of War should give fans one of their best looks at how the game actually plays. As we draw closer to its release next month, it will be interesting to see if Sony continues to be secretive about the project, or if it will reveal more gameplay footage in an official capacity.
For more about the upcoming game within a new mythology:
- His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… And teach his son to do the same.
- 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.
- 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.
