Santa Monica Studios' Cory Barlog and Rob Davies discuss sending the angry Spartan to Scandinavia.
Can’t wait for Christian mythology and fight moses
and Jesus too lol
Fight of Gods is already out :)) http://www.gospelherald.com...
Haha. Monotheistic religions would be pretty lame because there would only be one God to kill. Can you imagine what the reaction would be if they went with the islamic myths?
You'd have to go take out the prophets.
Catholicism kind of has its own pantheon though with all of the saints acting as deities that people pray to all the time. I have no idea what powers they would have and it would still be pretty lame. Some angels have some decent powers though and if they ever go this route, we're definitely killing Saint Peter. Maybe you even get to kill Santa. Would be perfect if a game featuring that released around Christmas.
Christianity is way to sensitive and influential i'd avoid it if i were them.
They won't touch it, the game would get more flack then all of Rockstar titles combined. Honestly, I probably wouldn't play it.
I'd play it but, just choose your battles i'd say.
We may get upset when people constantly mock us and much worse, but we don't retaliate with terrorism, I'm just sayin'...
Must people mock Christianity? Have you no respect for Christians in this website...
^^^^^^^^^ Case in point, Perfect example of the problem. smh!
i have respect for some christians, but thats because they are people before Christians. the religion itself, i understand it, i understand some people follow it. i have no intention what so ever to be told i need to follow a religion that has caused some of the greatest mass murdering in the name of a god. also the fact the word of god says that gays are goign to hell is a bigg no no in my book
Just use the Jewish mythology, Christianity originated from Judaism.
It's a joke man. I am a christian too
Not that I think it's a myth, but it could work if they do it with some degree of respect (unlikely). Stargate did it with the Ori, I think there's a ton to draw from there with Excalibur, Paladins, the miraculous and the whole warrior angel and demon thing, the end baddie being Satan would be something even Muslims could get behind. The theme of the game could be sacrifice, or the miraculous/faith and Jesus and the messenger angels could appear to Kratos now and again to steer him down the better road (not that he always has to take it). It won't happen though but the possibilities are endless. If you want an idea how this could look (so to speak), then I recommend the book "The Final Quest".
Why call someone’s religion a myth?
Egyptian would be awesome! Would love a boss fight against Anubis, Ra, Osiris, etc.
It would be badass and epic
It would be awesome but I wouldn't want for it to come out now. I'd feel overwhelmed with so much Egyptian lore with Assassins Creed Origins just releasing a few months ago
When I say now, I mean "right now", not "I don't want it to come out anymore". Norse mythology was the better pick for this moment in time.
Ancient Egypt would've made more historical and geological sense. Both Civs were relatively close to each other and often had contact between them. So much distance and time seperates Ancient Greece and the Norse.
I'm glad they decided to go with Norse mythology since I'm more familiar with it then the other two.
I hope Egyptian is sometime down the line. Would love more games set in Egypt. Assassin's Creed Origins is amazing.
I agree. Egyptian would be the next best choice after norse in my opinion.
Loving the Norse mythology so far can't wait to run into the big names like Odin and Thor...
Im glad they went with norse mythology, i think its more interesting and diverse. You got lots and lots of gods, Jotuns, creatures and lore. And the world you can build upon ancient scandinavia is awesome :)
I'm glad they went with Norse mythology on this trip, at least for the next two or three games but they have to end the next series off with Egyptian Mythology. Taking down mummies and Egyptian Gods. Looting Egyptian pryamids maybe rocking a pole arm or some other new style of weapon. The potential is most definitely there.
There's still time! maybe the next trilogies!
Oh man Mayan would be great for future IPs that follow this route, the mythos in the culture is scary and beautiful
I may be in the minority, but either one of those would have been better. I mean this game looks glorious and I will enjoy it, but since day one I haven’t liked the Norse direction, granted it still full of great stories and characters. I would have freaking loved a Mayan one, I would say Egyptian but ACO kinda filled that void. Don’t get me wrong, I’m down with the fresh scenery and lore of the Norse, I just feel like I’d want a new fresh take down a road no one takes such as the Mayan idea. Oh well, maybe one day.
Egypt would've made more sense since the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians were trade partners and knew about each others civs.
Mayan would be dope af. I believe i saw some concept art from a student not too long ago and it looked fantastic.
