Santa Monica Studio teamed up with the Gnomon School of Visual Effects to go behind-the-scenes in the making of God of War's art and design.

Since its release a couple of months ago, God of War has been stunning players with its amazing gameplay and gorgeous visuals and sound. Last night, Santa Monica Studio teamed up with the Gnomon School of Visual Effects based in Los Angeles, California to do a very deep dive into the making of God of War. For those unable to attend, it was all livestreamed on Gnomon’s Twitch account.

Clocking in at just under four hours, the event definitely went in depth going behind-the-scenes in the creation of God of War’s incredible environments and character design. Santa Monica Studio also tweeted some of the visuals that were shared during the three panels.

The game got some more news at Sony’s E3 2018 Press Conference last week with the announcement of A New Game+ feature that will allow players to carry their progression into a new playthrough.

God of War is currently available exclusively for PlayStation 4. You can read DualShockers’ review of the game here, and if you have yet to pick up the game, you can do that right now on Amazon.
