God of War on PS4 looks to be one of the most promising upcoming games on any platform- the game looks to take the classic Sony franchise, and expand it greatly when it comes to mechanics, setting, and scope. Its director, Cory Barlog, who incidentally also directed God of War 2, the best game in the series so far, is pretty active on Twitter, answering questions about the game and its development- so even though we haven’t actually seen more of the game since its debut at E3, we never quite forget about it.

For instance, in response to a fan’s query on Twitter, Barlog confirmed that the game is a brand new God of War saga, implying that the game will kick start a new story arc, and have sequels continuing its narrative. That’s good news for fans of the series- also what’s good news is that the game has been in development for over three years at this point. Why is that good news? Because judging by how long it takes to develop the average AAA game, that seems to imply that God of War may soon be nearing the end of its development cycle.

God of War is due out on PlayStation 4 exclusively some time next year.

    They really should release this one week before the Scorpio comes out.
    That would really get some fence sitters.

    • bardock5151

      Not really. The game will be eclipsed by a massive marketing campaign for Scorpio and Scorpio enhanced titles.

    • GK

      digitalfoundry,experts in they line of duty said that 900p and 1080p more different then 4k and checherboard rendering,so more or less all people who buy PS4 getting 4k,so scorpio not going to shine so much.and most of all,desire for hardware comes from software,so,if Sony makes good exclusives and release them in time,they overshadow scorpio.

    • bardock5151

      I’ll put it this way.
      Scorpio/PC = 1080p Ultra/High (Scorpio at 30fps)
      Scorpio = 1080/60 High
      Scorpio = FauxK/60 high/medium
      Scorpio = 4K/30 high/medium
      PS4 Pro = fauxK/30 medium
      PS4 Pro = 1080/60 medium
      Vanilla consoles 1080/60 and lower at low.

      Now 1st party is where Scorpio will shine. Through actual graphical effects as well as resolution.

      He still thinks he’s getting 4K on most new games. Cute.

      It won’t be shining with those awful textures.

    • bardock5151

      I don’t believe most new games will have true UHD output. But even if/when they do, they’ll still render higher, play better and have better effects than the PS4 pro at fauxK.

      But Sony has some comforting words for you, “it’s close enough”. Lol.

    • Mr Xrat

      Overpriced for what it’s supposed to deliver, too late into the gen, no exclusives. Really MS should have just tried to undercut a PS5 with a 2018 launch of a brand new console. Instead they’re stuck with another limp upgrade with the aforementioned PS5 around the corner. Oh well.

    • bardock5151

      PS5 in 2018? Wow, if Sony do that then they’ll just be shooting themselves in the foot. From their newly instituted 3 year console cycle to a 2 year cycle. Commercial suicide, worse than always online.

      You keep saying overpriced as though it’s fact, but you have no clue. Reinforcing evermore the fact that you are little more than an ignorant fanboy.

      A limp upgrade is the PS4 pro, just for reference. Probably worse actually.

    • Mr Xrat

      Try reading, goober. I said: “MS should have just tried to undercut a PS5 with a 2018 launch of a brand new console.” Instead they’re going to get undercut into the next gen like they did with the limp upgrade. Pretty sad that you don’t seem to grasp this, just as you can’t grasp that it’s now just power that makes or breaks a console’s success. The resolution stuff really got to you, didn’t it? Keep making these mistakes, please.

      Your precious Phil pretty much confirmed it’s gonna be on the level of the original Xbone for price tag, a few days after he downplayed the difference between 1080p and 4K. I’d get those expectations down too as well, if I were him. Gonna be quite the slap when it’s over $400 for slightly fewer asterisks and those compromises Aaron Slugberg said wouldn’t happen. At least that unwanted camera won’t get bundled with it this time.

    • Mr Xrat

      Uncle Phil’s house of cards is all set to tumble down.

    • Dougdec92

      That would take x out of the Xbox…savage..lol

  • Mr Xrat

    More Xgimp rage and delusion. Yes, maybe someone who isn’t an Xgimp will care about the Shitpio in a year.

  • Dougdec92

    God.of war is just a beast of a game and I really like their approach of telling a full blooded story with each mythology and its respective pantheons it encounters, I was quite at a loss like the dev team choosing between Norse and Egyptian mythology as the dev team earlier faced. In short its a game that does nano work of making your jaw drop
