Check out God of War's updated combat system in this seventeen minutes long leaked gameplay video split into three videos. The game is out on April 20th.
Oh boy it's looking good.
I hate the fact that there will be moment on release day that I will not be able to play because I will have to go see super troopers 2. Real world problems.
looks great, i’m excited to give this one a go on my PS4. The combat style looks like a nice changeup to the previous entries
This game impressed me a lot. The game play and the fluidity of the combo is rewarding. The combination of scripted events, linear level and short open world maps gives me a great sense of scale.
The combat is phenomenal. It has strategy and variety but it's so brutal. Wow.
This is just the same footage from PlayStation Underground but without the commentary and either a bad resolution or very compressed.
Looks great april 20th can't come soon enough
I don't expect any less out of this great game. The more I see it, more I'm convinced that Sony and this development team are focused. They know what they are doing.
Does look great but only 2 or 3 enemies on screen at a time?
Very nice cant wait to play this game so close.
Still one month. Too much!
Plenty great games in the meantime. Ni No Kuni II, MLB The Show 18, and Yakuza 6 same day. Burnout Paradise and AC Rogue Remastered as well as A Way Out. 4-5 years into the generation and we are inundated with games, especially on PlayStation.
PS4 has one of the best first world problems right now
Gameplay looks similar to souls games...I approve! Games should have adapted this kind of gameplay since way back...
I agree Up close and personal is a winner for me I can soak up the violence
I understand the comparison but, God Of War looks so more fluent and faster pace than souls games. That is no shade to dark souls one of my favorites. I'm just loving what their doing with this game.
I don't see enough similarities to pick Souls, out of all other games to compare it to.
Do you see the gameplay more comparable to Mario?
No, more like Ryse, Hellblade, and the games that inspired that style of combat/ perspective. Give of list of how the gameplay is similar to Souls games. I think the guy first played his souls game when Bloodborne became free, and is now comparing every game,
*Must not watch* enough leaks though I'm buying a PS4 to play this game.
the GoW Pro console perhaps?
WOW! This looks beautiful.. One reason i went digital because i dont have to wait any further post 20th April , Once the clock strike 0.01am I am on for the New Beginning..
Thank you Lord Kratos for you have allowed us to bare whitness to your wrath.
Bare whiteness, I see what you did there.
He didn't say whiteness you did, so you saw what exactly?
@offroad I saw the joke go right over your head lol. I know he meant to say witness.
So so so excited for this game that it's driving me a little insane. Lol
Love ittttttt :3
This is gonna be AWESOME
I just want to rip off as many cyclops eyes (😜) as i can.
enemies basically just waiting until kratos kills them, not even invisible witch was chellenging little bit dissapointed.
Do you really think this tutorial in indicative of... Oh you do.
I would like to think you're being sarcastic because... No one can be this ignorant to not see this is a demo of the game.
Just needed to see about 2 mins of the video.. Loved it.. Loved the brutality.. The shield mechanic is pretty awesome.. Def day one purchase
So glad you don’t have to mash ⭕️ to open gates anymore lol. I feel like I’m breaking my controller sometimes playing gow3 again.
Honestly I'm loving the close quarter visceral combat.
where are these videos getting leaked from?
Ok, seriously. Any doubts I had about the combat was absolutely washed away by this. Combat looks fluid and incredible. I'm so excited.
Yes, cant wait!
Not watching but I've seen all I needed to see in the previews before! Sony's first party studios deliver period and Barlog's last entry was my favorite out of the first trilogy so I know GOW is in capable hands! This game will be amazing both in scope and delivery! Can't wait till 4/20 because after that date all those "worriers" about the combat, camera and tone can rest at ease!
Still not a fan of the axe, I know the blades are gone to follow the story but I would of preferred to dual wield some type of daggers or swords.
I love the new combat direction Its feels a lot like Resi 4 and that´s an amazing thing!!
Next level. Damn.
So kratos went from being a black man to a white man even his new kid is white.
Kratos was never black. His voice actor was, and still is, but he's not.
The combat is anything but slow. If u hate the combat u are just a salty motherf*****
