Forums - Sony Discussion - God of War releasing April 20th, new trailer and new Special Editions announced

Pre-order offer

I should first mention, if you pre-order *any edition* (or already did) worldwide at a supporting retailer, you’ll acquire these three legendary shields skins (which you’ll need internet to access!) for Kratos to bash and defend against all manner of creatures we created in the brutal Norse wilds.

If you pre-order any edition at selected retailers across Europe, you’ll also receive Luck of Ages XP Boost, which grants you +10 Luck and has 1 Enchantment Slot. Luck influences the following:

  • Increase XP gain
  • Increase Hacksilver gain
  • Increase the ability to trigger Perks

Collector’s Edition

The 9” statue was crafted by our team in collaboration with the incredible folks at Gentle Giant. The cloth map is a unique companion to your journey, and an art piece on its own. The Huldra Bros carvings pack as much detail as their personas do in game. Just a few of the highlights, not to mention the digital items as well!

Limited Edition

Designed to look like it came straight from the forges of Midgard, the black and silver SteelBook is embossed with the Huldra Bros logo, and it comes with a physical copy of the art book by Dark Horse too. Of course, we’ve also included some cool in-game extras, like the Death’s Vow armour set, Exile’s Guardian Shield and a GoW PS4 theme.

Digital Edition

If digital-only is king for you, we didn’t forget. Adorn the legendary Death’s Vow Armor Set to increase your strength, and honour the solemn promise that sends Kratos and Atreus on their journey through the Norse wilds of Midgard and beyond.

The digital comic book from Dark Horse, Issue #0 starts to unearth the story of Kratos before his quest with Atreus begins. Not to mention both the digital comic and mini art book will come with exclusive creator commentary tracks.

Again, mark your calendars for God of War’s release on 20th April! If you’re not convinced yet, watch that trailer one more time or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more development updates!

God of War vs Nintendo Labo!!!!

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Very good. I was hoping for a GOW Pro edition console. I haven't upgraded to a Pro yet and thought that this would have been inevitable. Guess not...

The PS5 Exists. 

Around the Network

The Labo vs GoW battle will be interesting. I think GoW will obviously outsell it at launch but labo will pass it after the holidays.

First day for me

is this a Labo thread or a God Of War thread?

anyway, trailer was decent, would have liked to have seen a bit more combat/enemy/location variety, but I guess I can wait. will be interesting to see how people and reviewers react to the change of direction in the series. Some people used to complain about the lack of depth of Kratos and the main storyline, but some may not like the new focus or think it's too similar to soe other Sony games

January: Monster Hunter World, DragonBall FighterZ
February: Shadow of the Colossus remake
March: Yakuza 6, NiNoKuni 2
April:God of War

Great start.

Kratos is back. And he's Training the next generation Slayer - Atreus.
