Ahead of it’s April 20th release, the upcoming God of War game for the PlayStation 4 has gone gold, meaning the game is ready for mass production and shipping.
God of War’s director, Cory Barlog in a post earlier on the official PlayStation Blog broke the exciting news and talked about his time working on the title.
“This was the scariest, most wonderful thing I have ever done and I can honestly say it would never have been possible without the full-throated support of Sony and the tireless work of the incredible team at Santa Monica Studio. We have been through a lot together and I would not change a thing. You are the best damn team a director could ever hope for and I am thankful beyond words for every ounce of passion and pride you put into this game.”
Barlog went on to talk about the narrative of the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, and how it uses an emotional appeal and humanises Kratos, the God of War.
“Because this story is about fathers and sons, I wanted to thank my father, James Barlog, a source of inspiration and a great writer, who instilled within me the drive to create and the fortitude to survive the difficulties that come with that vocation.”
The last God of War title to come out was all the way back in 2013, with the release of God of War: Ascension on the PlayStation 3
God of War will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on April 20, 2018.
