Polygon sources say it's real.

Polygon said:
We've contacted Sony for comment on the apparent leak and will update with any response. However, sources have indicated to Polygon that the artwork is legitimate.

Update:

Images restored!

I think I missed some (or maybe a lot) but this is what I have:

Also it's explicitly stated to be Kratos:

------

Kratos is back



- There is Kratos, with beard;
- The setting is the Norse Mythology;
- Kratos will visit Alfheim, “Land Of The Fairies”, one of the Nine Worlds and home of the Light Elves (concepts show the Wall and the Temple Door);
- Kratos will be in one or more prison;
- Kratos has an Axe, with wich he can cut vines and create bridges/walkways;
- The surrounding environment could interact with the character (if Kratos brushes-up against the vines, they expell visible spores).
We remind you we also expect a cinematic trailer with “Gorgon & Hydra”, according to our previous leak.

Is it actually Kratos is another setting or is it a new character named Kratos?

I'm kind of iffy on whether or not I even want Kratos back. But Kratos with a beard and magically putting him in a new setting? Yeah, that's dumb.

I love the whole viking theme for a game like this but it shouldn't be with Kratos.

Ugly looking beard. If it's real, glad to see Kratos is back. Just change that awful beard design back to the original or get rid of it.

Probably not Greek Kratos, but a new character that just so happens to have the name Kratos.

Said in other thread but the Kratos model reminds me of like a bootleg mod for a Souls game create a character, especially with the pose and weapon.

I'm on board. God of War is still a fantastic franchise. Hope they can do some stuff to freshen it up a bit, but otherwise I'm more than happy to play another one.
