E3 2016

New God of War is Not Open World, Won’t Release This Year and More

During the Youtube Live broadcast with Geoff Keightly, Cory Barlog from Sony Santa Monica revealed quite a few important details about the upcoming God of War game revealed yesterday at Sony’s E3 2016 press conference.

The game has been confirmed to take place in a Norse setting and will once again feature Kratos as the main character. According to Balrog, the new God of War is set “many years” after the last God of War game and as we saw, features what looks to be the son of Kratos.

The gameplay of God of War has been reimagined, but the game will retain the same accessibility offered by previous entries in the series. The trailer shown at the conference also seemed to hint at a possible open world for the new God of War, but Barlog has confirmed that is not the case.

God of War currently does not have a release date, but Barlog confirmed that the game would not be releasing this year. We’ll keep an eye out for any further updates regarding the game so stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest details.

Thanks, Dualshockers.
