In this video, lead gameplay designer Jason McDonald opens up on the difficulty of redesigning the basic pillars of God of War's combat.
I'm gonna have fun throwing this axe around
Day one axe murdering going on lol
Throw axe and punch enemies to death. I actually enjoyed punching enemies in Ascencion and the way the camera zoomed and those punches felt. What an underrated game...
Hand to hand combat will return in God Of War.
This game looks AMAZING!
Nothing weong with being a girl. I was joking with you. Triggered?
A terrible joke to be honest.
What? I'm surely missing something here...
This is certainly a touchy subject. It will be very interesting to see what the longtime fans of the series think of these changes.
Changes a huge portion of the game and what made it a unique classic, I'll be open minded but it was definitely a bold move.
It stopped being ‘unique’ after 6 games
Ama miss them chains tho.We see how the Axe works in action!
I'm gonna be throwing Leviathan like crazy!
Still not sold and I’m one of those OG GoW fans.
Well, Sony Santa Monica isn’t confirmed or neither denied about the old weapon returned. But they very tight lipped about it.
According to Cory the blades of athena will be discussed in the Game... People needs to wait for the Game..
The ESRB mentions double-chained blades. https://i.redd.it/xw0yilrws...
I thought you had green blood these days?
I’m not sure what that’s supposed to even mean.
Throws the AXE, Chops a Norse monster's head and Takes Photo Mode .. That's gonna be Me
How Kratos' lack of jumping ruins the game
Yes because platforming is what longtime God of War fans will miss the most /s
Not just that, but any sort of arial combat and combos
You must be really disappointed, Frinker, we all know how much you love PlayStation games.. 😏
You played it?
When i first saw this game i was worried about the combat but i trust them to do a great job.. The new storyline/gameplay will make this title feel fresh
Axe is great, but the first time they showed the SHIELD, I was thinking ".....YES!!"
Gimli would be proud.
I wished they would've just stuck with hack and slash free form combat system
