Sony Interactive Entertainment opened the official website of the upcoming PS4 exclusive God of War, including a fantastic animated vista that you can see at the bottom of the post, and some official information about the story, including some interesting new details.

What Lies Ahead:

It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside of the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created…

A New Beginning:

His Vengeance against the gods of Olympus far behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the lands of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… and teach his son to do the same.

Second Chances:

As mentor and protector to a son determined to earn his respect, Kratos is faced with an unexpected opportunity to master the rage that has long defined him. Questioning the dark lineage he’s passed on to his son, he hopes to make amends for the shortcomings of his past.

Midgard and Beyond:

Set within the untamed forests, mountains and realms of the Norse lore, God of War features a distinctly new setting with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods.

Vicious, Physical Combat:

With an intimate, over-the-shoulder free camera that brings the action closer than ever, combat in God of War is up close, frenetic and unflinching. Kratos’ axe -powerful, magic and multi-faceted – is a brutal weapon as well as a versatile tool for exploration.

You can also find some awesome backgrounds and artwork from the site by Rafael Grassetti and Jose Daniel Cabrera Peña,, that will probably make for some great desktop or device backgrounds.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
