PlayStation Access has just published a new interview with Sony Santa Monica and God of War director Cory Barlog. The hour-long video details Barlog’s career in the games industry, from starting out to directing one of the PS4’s most successful games. One of the key takeaways specific to the future of the series which caught my attention is that Barlog’s conveys his desire to explore the origins of Kratos and his wife Faye’s (Laufey) relationship
“Faye was the one I identified with the most,” Barlog explains as he recalls because not having the opportunity to be there during his son’s early childhood. He actually describes his wife’s role as being more like Kratos in the sense that his wife has been there guiding his child from such a young age.
He then goes on to say that later in God of War “you get to understand that she (Faye) has way more power than all of them and is actually the controller of so much in this universe. That way when we build this up to when you actually get to see this, and I hope… I don’t know how we’re going tell this or when we’re going to tell this, but I really want to tell the story of Kratos and Faye meeting.”
Watch it, it's a great interview.
A new interview with God of War director Cory Barlog provides new insight into the development of the game, and perhaps a tidbit about its future.
