PS4 Exclusive God Of War Gets Epic New Concept Art Showing Midgard

Sony revealed new concept artwork of the upcoming God of War game for PS4, and there was even more hidden behind the scenes.

August 31, 2017

Sony Interactive Entertainment has been riddling God of War fans with small translation riddles in Elder Futhark, the ancient Norse runic alphabet widely used in the game.

This time around, as you can see below, the sentence meant “Realm of Many Mysteries.” By now we’re quite used to Elder Futhark, as we used a while ago to translate the tattoos on Atreus’ arm.

And indeed, the revealed concept art showcased the “many faces” of the realm of Midgard.

Yet, there was a bit more to uncover. The tweet pointed to an interactive book on the game’s official website, showcasing four new pieces of artwork. The numbering of the files actually indicated that there might have been a few more hidden in the site. Changing the digits indeed revealed three more images in addition to those revealed today, and to the winter-themed pictures released yesterday.


You can check them all out in the gallery below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the gameplay trailer from E3 2017, and a batch of beautiful 4K screenshots.

God of War will release in early 2018 exclusively for PS4.

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.
