    EDIT: It appears footage of the game has started leaking. This thread is NOT the place for spoilers of anything past the first three hours of the game (or, what was allowed to be shown in previews). Please do NOT post any videos of anything else here, even with Spoiler tags.

    I made a spoiler thread specifically

    EUROGAMER Quote - "The entirety of God of War plays out in a single, uninterrupted shot, the camera dancing through the series' trademark cinematic encounters in a way that's thrillingly dynamic. Come the end of 2018 it's likely to go down as one of the year's great achievements in games, and the execution is peerless."

    Lord give this game to me now!

    "The final, and perhaps most impressive thing about God of War is the fact that the entire game unfolds in a single, unbroken shot. There are no cutscenes, no load screens, no camera cuts, no fades to black. Despite the fact that game director Cory Barlog told us this back at E3 2016, the wildly-impressive effectiveness of this choice didn’t sink in until we actually went hands-on the game and realized that it was 100% true. I can’t really think of another game of this scope that has utilized this cinematic technique, but it’s an incredible feat. The unwavering immediacy in which we spend our time with Kratos adds even more depth to him and in turn, to his relationship with his son"

    My goodness, this sounds amazing from IGN preview

    I guess we can blame Mad Max Fury Road for God of War's reinvention. Sounds like a lot of George Miller's style influenced Cory and his approach to Kratos and the game

    Correct, I was honestly not expecting that to remain true, since Cory told us this back at E3 2016

    Holy hell does the game look amazing. I’m watching the playstation underground walkthrough. The axe recall looks so so so satisfying.

    Omg that recall jump attack. Someone gif that pls.

    Wasn’t this game supposed to be like 25-30 hours or something? I’m so happy if that’s true.
