Santa Monica welcomed 2018 with the latest installment of GOD of WAR, which is set in a whole new realm. Kratos is starting a new journey to Midgard and guess what, he is not alone this time, his son joins his adventure to learn about survival. This is a story of a father and son on an incredible adventure and succeeding in an extremely important task together. In the lines of Aaron Kaufman “Therein lies a connection for all of us between their story and the ones all of us have shared with our fathers, or for anyone who is a parent to a child”.
The studio took the title to a whole new level of gaming that changed the view and perspective that makes it completely different from the previous installments. After his fight with Zeus, Kratos decided not to wield the Blades of Chaos and he kept the story secret from his son and hid his weapon somewhere safe. Kratos started a new life marrying Faye (Giantesss) in Midgard away from his father and his old memories. The new design of Kratos’ character includes an Axe gifted by Faye and a shield and one new character to explore the world of Norse Land with him.
The main antagonist is the Æsir god Baldur, the brother of Thor, whose sons Modi and Magni assist Baldur in the latest installment which is kind of bothering Kratos since they know who he is and his past. Kratos and Atreus start their journey to the mountain taking his wife’s ash which was the last wish Faye demanded before her death. The fight is choreographed in such a way that it involves both Kratos and Atreus to the scene, which truly shows the bonding and willingness to help each other. The Bond between Kratos and Atreus keeps on growing as they explore together and Atreus feels confident after he knows the truth about who they are and what they are capable of.
Keeping in mind that there’s a component of custom and soul changing experience in how Kratos instructs Atreus to chase and slaughter (taking advantage of our sentiment for an effectively existing symbolism), the way that such a significant number of us saw ourselves in these characters is disturbing. Kratos is an abuser with a profound history of viciousness, begrudgingly endeavouring to bring up his child in spite of not knowing how. Atreus, who has no clue that Kratos killed his first spouse and child, is at his goodwill.
Finally, God of War has pushed Playstation 4 to its limits. This gave players goose bumps due to the stunning visuals delivered from the game. People had no idea that PlayStation could handle these realistic graphics.
