Look everyone I know we're all distrusting of leaks after the NX fiasco but this is definitely legit. This is Sony we're talking about. I'm actually surprised if I do NOT see concept art leak from their games.

Looks great!

Kratos model is just some low poly placeholder used in the concept art for scale. Previous GOW games and many other titles do the same thing. lol

That guy looks nothing like Kratos. This guy looks like a generic character you create in a RPG.

Please, a new character. Change it at the last minute if you have to.

Kratos has run his course, and he's a character that got worse with each installment.

Their concept artists are better than that...

I don't care if Kratos is the main character, as long as there is a GoW4! :)

Yep, that's kratos with a beard.

I didn't ask for next gen beard physics. I said next gen hair on top of head physics.

I don't really believe this is real, but if it is, I'm disappointed in the environment art, which is something I never thought I'd say about SSM.

I don't know what they'll do to make me want to control a blood-thirsty Kratos who wants to kill yet another pantheon of gods because anger, but I'm hype as fuck if we get a new mythology.

Should have been a valkyrie.

why does everyone hate kratos?
Probably because Sony/SSM could use God of War to go into different mythologies with different characters and personalities which would freshen up the franchise. Make it feel new. Instead, it will feel like a retread because he can't do anything else with his current mythology because everyone is dead.

Yeah if it's real, then I'm out.

Agreed. I haven't been buying or playing any of the GOW games. If Kratos is in, I'll continue not buying them.

You can "freshen up" the franchise without removing the main character. And btw. Kratos IS the God of War. He IS the franchise and a beloved character.

can you guys fix the graphics on level 3?


OT: i am down for the different setting; but if the concept art is real; they should just go all the way with a complete character refresh....don't need to Norse-icize Kratos...

Looks like someone fiddled a bit with Unreal 4 and made a really vague Kratos look-a-like.

Regardless of whether they like him, people generally are just tired of him, at least chronologically after 3.

The hate stems from 1) him becoming full-tilt asshole after GoW 2) the gameplay formula running its course during 3 and 3) the BS ending of 3 where they try to spin Kratos' actions in a positive way.
