Hack-and-slash games fused with gory imagery have always fascinated the gamers. God of War is the prime example of this genre. GOW has established itself as one of the greatest games ever created. This franchise has managed to sell over 32 million games worldwide. Since the successful release of God of War (2018), the duo of Santa Monica Studios and Sony Interactive Entertainment is set to return with God of War 5 anytime soon. The game director Cory Barlog has confirmed that the fifth installment is almost certainly in the works.
What Can We Expect From God of War 5?
We all know that the original God of War trilogy was completely based on Greek mythology. But the focus was shifted towards Norse mythology in God of War 4. This upcoming installment is expected to explore Norse mythology in greater detail. The protagonist Kratos, along with his son Atreus, will definitely return. Freya will be the main villain in this game. The story is expected to revolve around the events of Ragnarok. Fans can also witness the deaths of many Norse gods, including Odin, Thor, and Loki. We are definitely going to see some big scale fights in this game. The conflict between the father-son duo is believed to reach new heights. It will be playable only on the Sony PS5 console.
We can definitely say that the next God of War game will be “bigger and better” than the previous entries.
