Sony Santa Monica Studio decided to celebrate the launch of God of War in a unique way by creating a set of animated GIFs for the game that seems to have been based on the some of the popular reaction GIFs that we can see on various websites. The best part is that your favorite character like Kratos or other God of War cast can be seen in these GIFs animating the same reaction.
These GIFs were shared by God of War director Cory Barlog, Senior Animators at Sony Santa Monica, Jack Ebensteiner and Melissa Shim. They can be viewed below and if you fail to recognize which popular reaction they are copying, they are from Anchorman, Parks and Recreation, Brendan Fraser at Oscars and Thumbs Up kid Brent Rambo.[KGVID]https://gearnuke.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/god-of-war-funny-videos-1.mp4[/KGVID] [KGVID]https://gearnuke.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/god-of-war-funny-videos-2.mp4[/KGVID] [KGVID]https://gearnuke.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/god-of-war-funny-videos-3.mp4[/KGVID] [KGVID]https://gearnuke.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/god-of-war-funny-videos-4.mp4[/KGVID]
Naughty Dog has similarly created custom animated reaction GIFs for their characters so it is not surprising to see Sony Santa Monica Studio doing the same here. They are definitely going to get a lot of use across the internet.
