At San Diego Comic-Con, Neca announced a partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment Santa Monica Studio to create two products from the upcoming God of War game.
The first an awesome Kratos action figure. It’s seven inches tall with over thirty points of articulation and some really, really nice sculpting and detailing done. It captured the new bearded and fatherly look of the formerly violent hero definitely well.
The second is a foam prop replica of Kratos’ new axe that will become his main tool of the trade in the new game. It’s 36 inches long, and perfectly safe to swing around.
Unfortunately, the official picture only shows the silhouette of the axe, but Game Director Cory Barlog comes to the rescue, having tweeted what seems to be a prototype of the item.
Tools for surviving playtesting day 3. Excited about progress of the game but dear gods so much work to do. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/4824IsJZP1

Incidentally, from the tweet we learn that the game is being playtested. Barlog says to be “excited” about the progress done on it, but it appears that there is still a lot of work to do before the release in early 2018.
