God of War: The Original Versions of Kratos Were Very Different

Premier Gaming Network - Before he became a God he was a man, and before that he was nothing but an idea sketched out on paper. Today some brand-new concept art of the original Kratos released via Rise of the Warrior Challenges, all of them looking completely different from the final version. (God of War, PS2, PS3, PSP)

im pretty sure every god of war fan knows this by now especially if youve beaten the first game, though ill admit ive never seen the last pic of alpha kratos, he looks like a guitar hero character.

It looks like the Outcast from Starhawk, a title that Santa Monica helped on. Pretty sure it is!

I think the God of Funk picture with the fro in the article pic is the best.

None of the pictures from your link or from the article link are as good as the afro pic in the corner.

ya, that last one (blue eyes, skull painted on face)
is one of the skins in Starhawk.
over all, i think the original is the best, would not change a thing on him.

Can we play with Afro Kratos, please? Sony Santa Monica? Come onnnnnn!
TheGamerDood  +   934d ago
He actually looks good with a fro.
RTheRebel  +   934d ago
lol hope they put that in gow ascension

If you could unlock the Afro when you complete the game, that would make me play it twice just for that!
dalibor  +   933d ago
That would be a great incentive to beat it multiple times. Plus make it where you could use that online. I want to see Kratos with snakes as hair similar to Medusa. That might be to much it could look crazy if done right though.

Kratos's disco party, March 12th people!

Yeah... I see zero point to this article. Talk about old news :/

Don't like any of them. The original they went with is sweet.

This one reminds of an early Guitar Hero character.

The second last one looked pretty cool, the braid type things. But yeah, that one totally looks like a Guitar Hero guy. F***in generic as home-brand toilet paper.

Glad they went with what we are used to now. Either that or the 2nd last pic.

Power of the Afro to the max.
MeatAbstract  +   933d ago
I remember seeing all this ages ago. Wasn't it on the original God of War disc on PS2? I vaguely remember an interview with David Jaffe and he talks about creating Kratos and originally he had loads of armor on and then wanted someone more primal and brutal. So yeah, kind of old news, this.
modesign  +   933d ago
this would of been news 12yrs ago when they where showing off concept art for God of war.lol

He looks like he should be playing in the horn section of Earth Wind and Fire.

Kratos the clown.

I don`t really get what people see in kratos. I think he`s a generic character without depth like for example gears characters. I remember buying the first game, smoked a joint (not doing that for decades now), and were fascinated by the first 5 minutes. Then it was a downhill playing through the rest of the game in three days. I guess each taste to it`s own, but there are bad taste and good taste.

hmm

I see the avatar Kratos uses Afro sheen from the gods. on the serious side, the majority of those pictures doesn't fit the back drop of the game, most don't seem intimidating, which makes me think, was the story of God of War originally suppose to have Kratos kill the Gods?

My problem is how his voice acting changed. I know it's the same actor but in the first 2 games he had a controlled rage that bubbled up at times, now he just yells everything and it feels forced.

WHO DIDN'T KNOW THIS ALREADY!? They showed different models WAY back in 2005. Come on now. This is RIDICULOUSLY old news. How the hell did this get approved?
