God of War 4 To Be Based On Nordic Mythology – Report

Sony Santa Monica Studio are famous for their God of War series and the last time we saw Kratos was in God of War: Ascension on PS4. It has been a while since we have seen this this cult character in another game but at last year’s E3 event, Cory Barlog, who is currently heading an unannounced project at Sony Santa Monica, accidentally revealed that it is a new God of War.

Now that we have an accidental confirmation of the new game, we also have an idea of what type of mythology it will utilize and it seems to be quite a difference from the Greek mythology seen in the original God of War trilogy.


This is according to industry insider Shinobi, who got this information from his sources in the gaming industry. He made two cryptic tweets with the hashtag #GodofWar4 confirming that the new game will have a different mythology compared to the old games.

While Shinobi has proved himself numerous times in the past, this is still an unconfirmed rumor for now and shouldn’t be taken as an official confirmation of the new God of War settings.

Sony will host their annual E3 conference at Los Angeles this June. If there is a new God of War, it has a high chance of being revealed at that event. Guess we will find out about it soon enough.
