New God of War gameplay gives a look at combat and story from the earlier stages of the game, shown off at the recent preview event.
The gameplay comes to fans from PlayStation Underground, who demonstrates how Kratos deals with the unruly creatures of the forest, such as trolls, wolves, Draugers, and more. We also get a look at some of the game’s secret discovery and puzzle solving—promised by game director Cory Barlog—exhibiting a side of God of War that is more than just ripping hostiles in half.
For a more in-depth breakdown of the feel of God of War‘s new combat system, and how Kratos’ son Atreus fits into the mix, check out EGM’s preview of the same gameplay. Atreus was also the focus of a recent developer video, in which Santa Monica Studio got into how Atreus adds to God of War‘s rhythmic combat.
God of War is launching April 20th, exclusively on PlayStation 4. Those lucky enough to enjoy the game on the PS4 Pro have even more to look forward to, whether or not they’re playing on a 4K TV.
