Sony Confirms 'God Of War 4' Norse Mythology, Kratos Son Plays Important Role
The highly anticipated "God of War 4" is finally confirmed to arrive, only it will be introduced to PS4 first. And when its first trailer was unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event, most were just stunned. Fans learned that Kratos is taking up fatherhood duties. But apart from this, they were more concerned with the game's storyline. To burst the bubble of many, yes, the upcoming title is taking the road to the Norse mythology and here is why.
Sony's Director Cory Barlog talked to GameSpot during E3, where he discussed about "God of War 4" and Norse Mythology. First, he mentioned about how all mythologies in the world coexist with one another. That they, in one or another, correlate and were only separated by their corresponding geographies.
From that statement alone, it suggests the journey of Kratos from Greece all the way to Norway. It should be noted that the latter has its own story to tell when it comes to gods and/or mythology. However, Barlog explained that the iconic character in "God of War 4" does not entirely live in a Viking era.
For Barlog, Norse has a vast prehistory to tell -- apart from what people commonly thought of it as a land of Vikings. As for "God of War 4" and its storyline, the prehistoric events are what inspire the game. Moreover, he cited how the child (Kratos' son) will bring a significant impact. That it will reinvent the character as well as the series as a whole.
GearNuke, on the other hand, notes that "God of War 4" will offer a new kind of Kratos. That fans will get to see how his rage and being a stranger in a new land will have impact to the entirety of the game.
It is also worth knowing how the developers have managed to come up with a setting that is completely far from what the series had. Let alone the existence of Kratos in "God of War 4" along with his son. And, at the end of the day, it is a matter of how the studio is able to showcase the same intensity that the franchise is well-known for.
