The most recent video contains the game’s programmers moving behind the scenes of Kratos’ Leviathan axe.
From the video, creative director Cory Barlog emphasizes how iconic blades are into the series, also had pitched the idea of Kratos being able to launch an axe in his enemies. The video shows that players are not only going to be able to throw Kratos’ axe, however they’ll also be able to call it back into his hand. This appears to be certainly inspired by the Norse god Thor, and also his ability to call back his hammer Mjölnir. With this newest installment at the God of War series with roots in Norse mythology rather than Greek such as previous games, it matches all the lore’s inspiration of this game.
God of War has already gone gold ahead of its April 20th launch. It’ll be published for PS4. You can take a look at the video containing Kratos’ Levithan Hurry below. You could even see videos concentrated on the lore that motivated God of War in addition to an awesome TV commercial for the game.
