A new batch of rumors have popped up this week. And instead of being about a new console, or an upgrade to a console, it is about an individual game. God of War. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!
The latest rumor regarding God of War has stated that the next game in the series will be based off of norse mythology. I have not posted this rumor to the site because I am very, very cautious about posting any rumor that doesn't look guaranteed. But I would still like to discuss it here.
In the concept art, it appears that the main character will yet again be Kratos. He looks a lot different, but it is definitely Kratos. So here is the question: is it actually the Kratos we know from the original trilogy? Or is it a reimagining of Kratos? Either way, I will be quite disappointed if Kratos is in the game at all.
I loved the God of War trilogy. The gameplay, the bosses, the story, I thought it was all great. But the worst thing about the series was Kratos. He wasn't likable in the slightest, and I think it hurt the game to some degree.
My ideal follow up to the God of War series would be set in a new mythology, with a brand new player character. I seriously have no idea why Santa Monica is so insistent on keeping Kratos as a main character.
Again, all of this information is based on a rumor, a rumor that I felt was not very reliable. Either way, a new God of War game is on the way, and maybe soon. Where would you like to see the series go? And do you think Kratos should continue to be the main character? Let me know in the comments!
