One of the most interesting elements of God of War is the trolls, a race of giant creatures that you’ll get to fight at various points through the game.
Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment released a brand new trailer showing off exactly that.
On top of some spectacular battles rendered on PS4 Pro, we get commentary from Game Director Cory Barlog, Principal Character Artist Raphael Grassetti, and Lead Gameplay Designer Jason McDonald as they explain who the trolls are and how they fight. The intriguing fact is that they’re not just random members of their race, but they are unique individuals with names and personal fighting styles.
Incidentally, McDonald is correct. The first time I fought a troll I was definitely intimidated by his sweeping attacks that appeared to cover every angle, so I was chickening out and throwing the axe at them. It took a bit of time to get used to his moves and start getting stuck in Kratos-style. That’s part of the fun.
