Just like they did with God Of War 2 on PS2. I have fully confidence on them.

You think God of War 2 was better than the 1st? I always felt it was, i dunno - definitely different. But not better. I still prefer David Jaffe over Cory Barlog

Blade92165d ago

I like them both. However I have to say I think Barlog did this game justice with its soft reboot.

"I still prefer David Jaffe over Cory Barlog"

Lmao, sorry that's not a thing.

Cory just delivered easily the best GOW to date, whereas Jaffe is struggling to stay alive in the industry, and his last game drawn to death was a shallow flop.

I'm gonna be pissed if Atreus grows up in the sequel and Kratos stops calling him "BOY!!!!"...

Jokes aside, (not really I'm serious) I cant wait for the next one. It will be a PS5 game so I cant even comprehend the upgrades this engine will receive!

Thor, get your as in the hyperbolic chamber and stay in there cause Kratos is coming in 2-3 years!!

God of War 2 was arguably the best one in the main trilogy in terms of story, length and gameplay refinement.

UCForce165d ago

David Jaffe have similar struggles like Cliff B. Despite the first God Of War wasn’t Cory Barlog first creation, but he was part of GOW team. SSM trusted him to take care the sequel and he did it justice.

God of war 1 is a classic like 2 but 2 is easily better

StormSnooper165d ago

GOW2 was amazing. GOW1 had the initial shock effect but 2 was definitely the better game.

Did you actually read what you typed? I mean they could just make a remake, and we could be excited, cause we dont get anything else....ROFLMAO.

darthv72165d ago

GoW2 is my favorite of the original trilogy. It just was epic in scale and execution. 3 was very good as well but 2 was clearly a labor of love for the series.... that is until this new one.

bluefox755165d ago

I just can't imagine the new GoW being bigger or better, lol. This has me excited.

IamTylerDurden1165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

I will always respect Jaffe for creating the franchise, but GoW 2 is bigger, better, and longer than the original. It just is. They should've developed the characters and story more in 2, but i felt like 2 was a larger journey with better action. The scale was larger as well.

wolokowoh164d ago

Balrog was the lead gameplay designer of the first GOW as well so he had a lot to do with why both games were awesome. I can understand the preference for the first game though. It is shorter, more focused, and had several gameplay features that were never used as again to the same degree.

Blaze929164d ago

@wolokowoh - at least one person understands.

All of the God of War games have been great. Especially this new one. I have no doubt they will craft another incredible game.

That's quite feat considering how good GoW is. Cory and the team topped himself already so I got no doubt he may do it again

blitz0623165d ago

They don't need to change a lot of things. Me personally I just want bigger and better bosses and not differently colored trolls and soul eaters

Ashunderfire86165d ago

Yeah that enemy variety is repetitive, but it was the game was still fun. I feel that all those enemy was fillers, because they didn't want to show Odin and Thor too quickly in the first game. They are leaving all the enemy variety for the second game. I wonder what God of War Ragnarok is going to look like for the third!

getbacktogaming165d ago

Yesss ! Bigger bosses ! ...and I'd love it if it comes out on PS4 although I'm ok with PS5 too as long as I can carry my games collection over :)

IamTylerDurden1165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

The first boss fight was among the best in the series. The dragon was massive and it has all the Valkyrie optional bosses. There were numerous mini bosses such as The Traveler, Trolls, Soul Eaters. I have yet to finish the game, but i wouldn't say the enemies and bosses were disappointing. Maybe we are just spoiled by GoW 3? That had an epic collection of huge bosses, but the new GoW is a better game.

IamTylerDurden1165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

I believe they can do it. The production of God of War was tumultuous, but now they have an engine, assets, and a blueprint. Cory has stated that the development was a tireless struggle, but it's a testament to the team how everything came together. But now they have a vision and they know what worked and where to go.

The sequel will blow the doors off. Thor, Odin, Asgard, Valhalla. Oh yea.

BeardedDrachen165d ago

Game will be even better?? Man... It will be an early game on the PS5.. then the last game in the trilogy will be near the end of PS5.

CyrusLemont165d ago

Looking forward to it big time, I hate how excruciatingly long the wait will be for this though.

It’d be cool to see Kratos get pummeled by Thor with his hammer left on his chest, Leviathan taken and Atreus kidnapped in the opening moments, then years pass and something happens which liberates Kratos but now he has to look for his son who has been completely turned and manipulated by Odin/Thor while living in Asgard.

Bathyj165d ago

What if Kratos lifted Mjolnir?

Ooooo I just got chills.

Goldby165d ago

If an elevator can lift it. Kratos can lift it

solideagle165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

not sure if they will have "only worthy one" can lift it...but it Mjolnir look same as Leviathan. Actually its like

- Leviathan <-- Ice
- Certain weapon <-- Fire
- Mjolner <-- Thunder
- xxxx <-- Wind?
- xxxx <-- Earth/Sand? Egyption?

SuperSonic91165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

Kratos has Brock and Sindri on his side so it going to be ......

HallowedSoul1165d ago

I guarantee Kratos is going to kill Thor with Mjolnir.
