It's cool I can pick the most difficult mode right off the bat, will potentially make it a one run needed platinum.
But I'll start with the balanced mode probably so I don't think God of War is a Souls game
God of War hardest modes have always been pretty damn hard, but it's cool to know I'll have to relearn how to approach the enemies because of it, it'll really feel like a Souls mode for it.
This game is smelling like a masterpiece to me, might surpass 3 and become the best of the series and chart on my top 10, everything about it just seems great (I do hope we have at least two more main weapons after the axe, though)
