      That GOW4 is in production is a worst kept secret after Cory's inadvertent leak a while back. It has also been closely tied to the PS4K leaks/rumours.

      Yesterday it appears that a couple of "insiders" have been talking up a Norse mythology setting for the game and concept art "confirming" this has leaked at nerdleaks.

      GoW4

      A big thumbs up for this if true.

      That's a pretty cool route to take the franchise after so man games of Greek mythology. But they need to drop Kratos and create a new character in my opinion, create something new and fresh.

      How cool would it be to control a Viking version of Kratos!!

      I'm neutral on Kratos. He's a good character but the angry vengeance thing in the context of Greek gods has run its course.

      If it continues with him in a Norse setting then the back story needs to be compelling enough to make it work.

      Polygon appear to be confirming this leak to be real.

      I love that they are going for Norse mythology but yeah I hope Kratos in those pics is just a place holder and they have someone new I feel Kratos's story ended with GOW 3 even though it hinted he survived at the end.

      I think I'll be doing a GOW 3 remaster followed by GOW4 combo with this. Really enjoyed the Uncharted remasters and GOW looked fantastic on PS3, so assuming the remaster didn't drop the ball, it will set up the 4th instalment nicely..

      Well they have Kratos although he does seem to have calmed down a lot now he has a kid, I'm guessing the mother has died or not around by the way he was talking to his son and asking about her training him in hunting.

      I'm wondering if Kratos is actually going to be the main one in this It kind of felt of a passing of the torch, Kratos teaching his son what he knows for the beginning of the game something happens and the Son is played for the rest of the game grown up of course I would like to see that as i said previously i felt that the Kratos story has been done his Son would be a fitting replacement.

      It looks like Santa Monica have spun the series on it's head, similar to how Crystal Dynamics reinvigorated the Tomb Raider series.

      Personally, I'm a huge fan of devs that have the balls to do this.

      God of War finally looks like it's grown up, though it's always been the epitome of graphical finesse.

      PC master race...eat your heart out and suck on this.

      "This game is about Kratos teaching his son how to be a god, and the kid teaching Kratos how to be human again."

      Liking the look of this. The original GOWs were a bit boring and shallow IMHO (though good at what they did) but this seems a more rounded game.

      I've always rather liked them. Mindless slash em up, lots of fun carnage. How many games gives you a chance to beat the living crap out of Hercules?

      I'm up for this. Whens' the release date?

      25-35 hours sound standard, to me.

      It's interesting, I always used to find that most games were of decent length when I was younger, but it could just be that time felt slower then. I like my games long and lengthy, as long as the gameplay is good.

      That's fantastic news. It blows my mind that EA can come out and say the market has shifted and no one wants single player games anymore. Ludicrous!
