God of War Fan-Made Poster Raises Excitement Levels for Upcoming PS5 Sequel
God of War 2 fan art will make you wish you could get your hands on the game sooner.
As you may know, the sequel to God of War is making its way to the PlayStation 5 next year. A short teaser for the next installment of Kratos was showcased at PlayStation PS5 Showcase recently which was a hit among excited fans. Although we only saw a very barebones clip, many of us knew within seconds what was being shown by the haunting music and then the obvious Greek circle symbology. In anticipation of God of War 2, we have some Kratos fan-art that will make you wish the game was here sooner than 2021.
Ömer Köse, an award-winning key-art and motion designer from Turkey, has put together an incredible God of War “Ragnarok is Coming” poster that is mostly taken up with the serious and imposing face of Kratos. Ömer states that this particular Kratos image is taken from an in-game shot which goes to show how much detail the developers really went into making Kratos. You can see every line on his face, the intensity in his eyes, and the years of fighting taking a toll on his salt and pepper beard. It’s a simple image but it holds so many stories and Ömer has done an amazing job at bringing it to the surface. All that’s left to wonder now is what exactly will take place in the sequel, who will Kratos face, and what will become of Atreus.
If you’re interested in Ömer’s keen eye for detail and impactful design, make sure to check him out over on Instagram for many more posters ranging from Breaking Bad, James Bond and Spider-Man to The Avengers and The Witcher.
To see another other pieces of fan art that this time depicts an older Atreus, you can check out Sam Yang who does a bunch of brilliant digital paintings in photoshop. Recently Sam captured Atreus as a fully grown man and Kratos as a much older man in the background – it’s a really stunning piece that you can view right here. Coming in with some cosplaying adventures is Ibelinn, a talented cosplayer from Norway who mimicked the beautiful style of God of War’s goddess Freya and it suffices to say that all her hard work and hours put into this cosplay truly paid off. For those of you who are big Kratos fans, you may dig this clay sculpture of the big man himself done by the incredibly talented Reddit user and artist Flompydompybompy that is crafted with the finest touch and also impeccably detailed.
At the start of the year, Sony and Santa Monica Studio released an episode of the Worlds Collide podcast, which is a deep dive into how the many elements of God of War came together to tell a rich and deep narrative. In one particular episode called “The No-Cut Camera,” we got a look at how the studio managed to pull off a single-take camera effect with no cuts. We all know that God of War director Cory Barlong is the king of witty banter on Twitter and recently, we saw him and The Last of Us director go head to head in a jokingly way by pitting the two games by claiming that God of War uses more teraflops than 2013s The Last of Us.
God of War is available exclusively on PS4. If you have yet to experience the game for yourself, you can pick up the game right now over on Amazon. Make sure to keep an eye on the DualShockers website for all God of War 2 news and information regarding the game in the coming months.
