God of War is coming back, but not quite as you remember it. Up until now, the God of War games have all been fairly similar. You play a bald guy who kills massive Gods in increasingly over-the-top ways, but after God of War: Ascension there wasn’t really anywhere else for the series to take it’s ultraviolent carnage.
So, with the new God of War, it looks like Sony’s Santa Monica Studio is scaling back, or at least making the action a bit more down-to-earth. The new trailer, unveiled at Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, introduces us to a bearded Kratos, who looks much more like a regular human than the superhero-esque character we’ve seen in the past. Also, he has a son. Yes, Kratos’ family apparently isn’t dead in this game – or at least his son isn’t. We don’t get a look at the kid’s mother.
