God of War (also referred to as God of War 4 and God of War PS4) is a third-person action-adventure video game developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE). It was released on April 20, 2018, for the PlayStation 4 (PS4) console. It is the eighth installment in the God of War series, the eighth chronologically, and the sequel to 2010's God of War III. The story is a new direction for the series, as it is loosely based on Norse mythology—all previous games were based on Greek mythology. Series protagonist Kratos returns as the main character, and he now has a son named Atreus. Kratos acts as a mentor and protector to his son, and has to master the rage that has driven him for many years.
Described as a "reimagining" for the franchise, the gameplay has been rebuilt, with one major change being that Kratos no longer uses his signature double-chained blades. He instead uses a magical battle axe called the Leviathan Axe. Another notable change is the camera; the game uses an over-the-shoulder free camera as opposed to the fixed cinematic camera seen in the previous entries. There are also elements similar to role-playing video games and Kratos' son Atreus can provide assistance during gameplay. A short text-based game called God of War: A Call from the Wilds was released on February 1, 2018, through Facebook Messenger, and follows Atreus on his first adventure into the Norse wilds.
God of War received universal acclaim, being praised for its combat, visuals, world design, story, and characters. Receiving a 95/100 from review aggregator Metacritic, it is the highest-scoring game in the franchise. It has the second highest score of all time for a PlayStation 4 game (tied with The Last of Us Remastered), and the highest score for an original, non-remastered PlayStation 4 game. It is the highest rated PlayStation 4 game of 2018, as well as the highest rated game of 2018, regardless of platform.
