The new God Of War will be a reboot of the series. This one’s different from the previous installments, this one has a Norse mythology story set in Scandinavia. The story isn’t the only thing that’s new in this game, Kratos is fighting monsters alongside his son, Atreus.
Kratos has changed a lot, much quieter in this God Of War. Now, Kratos is a man who is following his wife’s death, while he’s looking after his son and trying to be a better man. Kratos is trying to control his temper, his rage still remains, as a tool that he can use when needed.

Cory Barlog said that one of the developers took 43 hours to 100% complete the game. This God Of War will have richer world than ever before, will be much bigger. The fact that it can take 35 hours to complete the game, which means that there will be a lot of side quests or just a story that takes Kratos’ son and Kratos all around the country that they are in.
God Of War’s Combat:
This God Of War focuses on the new Leviathan axe instead of the swinging Blades of Choas that easily dealt with hordes of enemies, which makes the combat much closer and personal. Kratos’ son, Atreus fire arrows at targets when you tap the square button. This can be used to keep your enemies busy while you take care of other problems, it can also be used to distract your enemies which will give you an opening to attack the enemies. Spartan rage is still here which will give you a few seconds extremely high damage.
