Awe... my sexy awesome post disappeared.

Anyway, the description sounds like a sequel but the teaser sounded like a prequel... I think it will be a mix of both. Regardless, day fucking one.

What if you play as Kratos for the first 30 minutes and then some new guy named Raiden for the rest of the game?

I just hope they deepen and expand the combat system a lot more. So much greatness could come out of this games' combat, it's just hasn't tried that hard yet.

Cautiously excited. And love the leaks.

Ghost of Sparta has a way better story and execution than GoW3. But there's no more room for stories to tell without really really reaching.

Weird. I was reading the other thread and then it vanished.

Anyway... ah. I was wondering if they'd go with a different mythology should they make another GoW game.

I honestly thought it would be set in modern times, just like Jaffe's original time-traveling vision for the sequel to the first game. Phooey.

RAD said farewell to God of War. Unless they lied, they are working on a new IP for the next generation.

Give me GoW Modern Warfare or give me GoW Norse.

That's pretty much what I've been wanting since the ending of the first game. It'd be like the beginning of Darksiders, but the whole game instead of that small section. :(

Norse God of War would also be awesome.

Kratos is badass personafied. Don't want another character, just don't want all the baggage that came with GoW3.

GoW3 ended how it did for a reason. Kratos had a story, it was completed. This feels completely unnecessary and you certainly CAN have a God of War without the original god of war, set in a different time period with a different set of gods.

What's left to tell about Kratos story? And I doubt Kratos is such a well liked character, he's a complete douche in 3.

There's just so much mythologies out there they could use to expand the series, why not use them? :|

So let's start putting together a list of things we know will happen.

1) We'll start somewhere, and ultimately revisit that area in the end.
o Sex Minigame
2) We'll die and crawl our way out of Hades.
3) We'll gain spells one by one and become more powerful.

Greek isn't the only mythology with a god of war.

And I expected it. But that doesn't make it any less boring or run into the ground.

Full transcript:

Many know the story of Kratos- the mortal turned god who brought down the very walls of Olympus, but there was a time before Kratos became the monster known as the Ghost of Sparta. A time where something other than rage consumed him. A time when, in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god. A time when he would no longer be bound in blood.

Will the GOW3 director still be directing? He is still at SSM.

I liked that all 3 main games had different directors and different feels.


Plus GOW3 was clearly the weaker of the bunch so having someone new at the helm would probably be for the better.

Hope its more then a AC2: Brotherhood semi sequel.

We already know how he got those things. The teaser didn't really tell us anything other than confuse us, lolz.
