The new God of War tells an amazing story, but those wishing to learn of the story behind the story can follow the game’s director as he embarks on his director commentary playthrough.
The play-through is a multipart series in which game director Cory Barlog takes on God of War, offering fascinating insight into the development of each scene of the adventure. Only the first episode is up so far, which can be seen below, but as it doesn’t even cover the full tutorial, there are presumably many more to come.
While Barlog’s breakdown in the video above is very sincere, other, less official videos have taken a more comedic approach to the game. The popular Honest Trailers YouTube series took its own crack at the game, as did Conan O’Brien in his latest episode of Clueless Gamer.
In other God of War news, the game was unsurprisingly the best selling PlayStation game for the month of April. This makes sense, considering it is also the fastest selling PlayStation 4–exclusive game of all time.
