Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released five minutes of new gameplay of the upcoming God of War by the good folks at Santa Monica Studios.
The video showcases a battle against a massive troll. Incidentally, trolls aren’t generic enemies, but each is a unique full-fledged character. Each looks different, fights in his own slightly different way, and has his own name.
We also get to see some exploration, including treasure hunting, loot, puzzles, and interaction between Kratos and Atreus.
One thing is for sure: while the jury is still out on how the game plays, it looks absolutely gorgeous. You can see for yourself in the video below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy more videos about the game’s lore, another video about the relationship between Kratos and his son Atreus, one about the lack of any cuts interrupting the cinematic experience, and some more really spectacular gameplay.
God of War went gold a couple of weeks ago, and it will release exclusively for PS4 on April 20th.
