In the upcoming God of War for PS4, Kratos doesn’t just abandon the Greek setting for the cold lands of the North, but he also drops his usual weaponry for a gruesome war axe, and and the skilled team of blacksmiths at Man at Arms: Reforged set out to create exactly that.
The result is a massive weapon, that gives a very clear idea of just how lethal Kratos will be in the game.
Funnily, we also get a note of color. According to the master blacksmiths, the handle of the axe is not an historical design, but it’s simply inspired in shape by a modern fireman’s axe.
That’s not so surprising, as after all we’re talking about a game, and a bit of poetic license is certainly warranted to make things look cool. Kratos’ axe definitely does.
At the moment the game still doesn’t have a release date, or even a window, but you can check the video below and see if it makes the wait easier, or harder.
