Thankfully, God of War Director Cory Barlog during YouTube live broadcast has shared the very first details about the new God of War game for PlayStation 4. According to Barlog, with God of War for PlayStation 4, the development team is re-imaging the gameplay, however, the storyline is being continued with the Norse Mythology setting.

In God of War PS4, the lead protagonist is going to be Kratos and players will play as him from start to end. On the topic of release window for the game, Barlog stated that it is “Coming Out SOON”, which means definitely 2016 is not a release window for the game.

The event in this new Gog of War game is set many years after God of War 3. It’s a much more intimate and player-controlled experience. The game is huge but not an open-world. As mentioned above that the gameplay is getting re-imagined and so Quicktime Events will not be included the same way as they were used in the previous God of War game.

This is all we have for now about new God of War game. Watch the first gameplay trailer below again:
