The upcoming God of War is one of the most eagerly-awaited games coming to the PS4 this year and not only for its spectacle and action, but for the emotion and character development that the game will imbue into Kratos through his relationship with his son.

Sony has released a new behind-the-scenes video on the making of God of War, with the video looking specifically at the dynamics of Kratos and Atreus’ bond, and how their relationship will be one of the main driving forces behind the latest installment of the series.

Aside from that, the video also explores how the game’s development team at Sony Santa Monica sought to integrate Atreus in a way that made him a “seamless companion” for the player throughout their journey, but also while adding his own moves and abilities that would not only make him unique from Kratos, but also not require micromanagement or complex sets of commands from the player in God of War.

God of War will release exclusively for PS4 on April 20th, 2018. For a closer look at the game ahead of its release next month, you can check out the new video from Sony below showing the bond between Kratos and Atreus:
