I bet by now you are familiar with the Gods- slayer Kratos. My experiences are completing Chain of Olympus on PSP and God of War 3 on PS3. Yeah, the Ascension (PS3) demo as well.
However, I would be glad to buy the PS4 title – set in the Norse mythology – and at the same time complete the other titles in the series.
PS4’s GoW looks superb and here’s a 2 hours long documentary on making the game:

Kratos IS the most bad ass character ever created, period.
Different gaming sites are reporting and quoting God of War’s director Cory Barlog as he’s saying that there were plans for DLC content but it’s not happening.
“There was a time when I wrote a couple of DLCs that we were talking about. Ok, what if we did release some other stuff after?” Barlog said. “You know, there are interesting ideas but I think the amount of time we’d have to put into it, it would start to end up kinda like a Left Behind or a First Light kinda thing where it’s just so big…like Lost Legacy of something like that.”
“I think I have a difficulty with the lower ambition portion, that I end up [saying] ‘maybe it’s a little too big!’”
“I had a really fun idea for a DLC that I only regret because I would love to have done that,” Barlog told Kinda Funny. “But it was too ambitious.”
Barlog said it would have been like The Last of Us 1‘s Left Behind or Uncharted Lost Legacy releases, which were big enough to warrant their own standalone releases.
“It would [have] ended up being its own thing,” Barlog said of the mystery God of War DLC. “Rightfully so, everybody said, ‘Dude, this is crazy, this isn’t DLC, this is a little too big.”
God of War was released April 20 and sold 3,1 million copies at launch.
A month has passed and the numbers look pretty good. 5 million games, making it match up the numbers of God of War III from launch up to date. Also, it took Horizon: Zero Dawn one year to reach 7,6 millions sold copies, a success that God of War has good chances to surpas.
God of War thrusts Kratos in a brand new realm filled with a new mythology. Learn why game director Cory Barlog decided to leave the Greek realm behind, and what attracted him to new mythos.
