Sony Santa Monica’s God of War will come out early next year, and we still have quite a few months to wait, but today Sony Interactive Entertainment Vice President of Marketing Asad Qizilbash was at the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas to talk about the game.

According to Qizilbash Sony Santa Monica has a “phenomenal” team working on God of War, and that gives them confidence. Early footage shows that they’re in “The right place” and he feels that people are going to be blown away.

We also hear that differently from the previous games of the series, what the development team really wants people to feel is caring for Kratos in the quieter moments.

Combat has changed as well: it’s no more one versus many, but more focused on one versus one or versus two. It’s more personal, strategic and visceral. It’s also going to be “the most brutal God of War ever.”

Interestingly, Kratos’ Leviathan Axe has been forged by the same dwarfs that made Thor’s hammer (Sindri and Brokkr), and Qizilbash confirmed that it can be upgraded.

If you want to see more, you can also watch the impressive trailer from E3, and some really awesome 4K screenshots dating back to June.
