Sony Santa Monica has announced the release date for the upcoming game God of War. The studio has also released a new trailer for the game.
Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
The game features a shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action. Fights mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling.
In the game Kratos wields a new main weapon and has new abilities that "retain the spirit of the God of War franchise" while presenting a vision of violent conflict that is said to forge new ground in the genre.
God of War launches on April 20, 2018, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
