God of War is an action-adventure, hack and slash, mythology-based video game series, originally created by David Jaffe at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio.

This game was released April 20, 2018, and on that day, the game sold over 4 million copies worldwide. God of War has been a fan favored since the first release in March of 2005 for Playstation 2.

This makes the fourth game to the series, but adds a twist that no one ever expected: Kratos has a son. So Kratos (Cratus) is the god or personified spirit (daimon) of strength, might, power and sovereign rule. The story starts with Kratos and his son Atreus, named after a brother-killing king of Greece, collecting wood for the ceremonial funeral of his wife Faye, this is strange to those who know the past story that Kratos lost his first wife Lysandra and child do to the deception and betrayal of the other gods.

Having a second family was strange given the lost of his first. Even so, he had another family, from the dead of Faye a journey to complete her final wish to have her ashes spread from the highest point in all the world. Before they could set out into their journey, Kratos would need to test his son to see if he is ready to make the journey, only to see his son was not set for this new adventure. A strange guest appears at their home. Baulder, a demigod like Kratos, is this stranger who causes a fight with him and from this fight beings their journey. As they go they meet a few interesting people Freya, Brok, Sindric, World Serpent, Thor’s kids, and Mimir.

In this game you go way more than the main story and side missions, but there is also a whole lot of other things to do and find. There is tons of other side quests: Labors, Odin’s ravens, treasure maps, artifacts, and tear realms. Another interesting mission that is very difficult in the Valkyries, you need to find all eight in Odin’s chambers that can only be open with a chisel. But not all of the are in Midgard, but all over the realms. You don’t just have to find the Valkyries in the realms, also other missions to the realms like Niflheim is a maze and Muspelheim need to go through trials.

As the story line goes and you go through everything more and more of Kratos pass and Atreus truth come into light testing their bonds to the limit.
