Sony kicked things off by bringing a beloved franchise roaring back onto the scene with a gameplay trailer for a new God of War. I dig the new, old, bearded Kratos and the transition to Norse mythology from the previous exploration of Greek gods and myths. An even bigger change than the setting is the style of gameplay, with the new game making the switch to a more modern third-person perspective. There have been some great third-person action titles in recent years. Sony Santa Monica certainly have their work cut out for them but the small slice of playtime we saw seems to bode well for the game. What really piqued my interested more than the gameplay, was the potential themes the game could explore by putting Kratos in a very different situation.
