It's an absolutely phenomenal game. I hope we get an expansion pack like The Frozen Wilds, to hide us over until the sequel drops.

/\---- Yess... Please...

bouzebbal2175d ago

good! the series must be up to a fresh new start.
they built a good foundation for the next episodes, now i hope they add content like new bosses and different types of enemies.

Shiken2175d ago

They confirmed that there will be no DLC for the game already. I would rather have them focus on the next game anyway, this one is already a complete experience.

UltraNova2175d ago (Edited 2175d ago )

Yeah dlc is not coming as Shiken mentioned. Its a shame really but at least we are getting a new game + patch soon. Speaking of which, where the hell is it? I've intentionally put the game aside waiting for the NG+ patch ever since I got my new TV saving it for GOW's HDR eye candy!

Common SM bring it on!

bouzebbal2175d ago

@UltraNova:
i think they will announce some DLC at PSX later this year.

Shiken2175d ago

@bouzebbal

They already announced that there will be no DLC for the game. Have you not been paying attention?

UltraNova2175d ago

Bouz,

They will surely announce the NG+ mode at PAX for sure.k

They are holding firm on them not making any DLC for this game. For once it's the full package which is awesome. Amazing game from start to finish.

Jeff2572175d ago

Well at least we are getting New Game Plus. I really cannot wait to see what they do with it.

ninsigma2175d ago

Funny thing is when I first started playing it I really wasn't enjoying it. I didn't know what was wrong with me because I could tell it was a quality product but I just wasn't having fun. After a couple days playing, I gave it a break then started it again from the beginning without finishing my first save. 2nd time, I loved it. It was so weird 😂
Best game I've played all year, just an astounding achievement to evolve the franchise in a very big way yet still keeps those who played the old ones. Would love some expansions for it!

sprinterboy2175d ago

I was the same buddy, its not until you unlock stuff when you find your playstyle imo with the attack and a defence you like or are familiar with, when I got to end I wa like shit I haven't used that attack as much as I should of lol. The thing that makes gow great is its varied gameplay, changing your playstyke to suit different sections of the game which kept it fresh from Start to finish. However although I liked the controlling the kid I did feel I just press the buttons without really knowing half the time if it was a good move it bad lol.

WelkinCole2175d ago

I you are a fan of the old it might have been that. Took you some time to love the new direction

ArchangelMike2174d ago

I'm like that with alot of games. I get half way through and have to start again. I think it takes me a while to settle into the game mechanics.

madforaday2175d ago

I have a weird feeling we WON'T get any DLC related for GOW. I do think they are going to take some words from the New Game Plus that GG did for Horizon Zero Dawn.

They talked many times about how they wanted a lot more armor pieces and etc. but didn't have enough time.

I think they are going to add more armor pieces, enchantments and etc. (maybe new moves, most likely not though). I would LOVE that!

Skuletor2175d ago

With almost any other game, Muselpheim, Nilfheim and the Valkyries would all have been payable Dlc.

ArchangelMike2174d ago

I know exactly what you mean. I guess Sony want a sequel out sooner, and don't want to divide resources for the DLC.

Sarcasm2175d ago

It's a bit cliche to say, but it's my personal best game of this generation. I know I know, there are a bunch of great games that have come out. But none that hooked me the way this did. Re-inventing the series in the best possible way. I seriously can't wait for the next one.

paintedgamer19842175d ago

No dlc... but i wouldnt mind a traditional gow made by someone else to hold us over. I dont see another 3rd person gow until like the 2nd or 3rd year into the ps5

Yea God of war was pretty much flawless.
Good to hear. Can't wait for spiderman especially.

doggo842175d ago

Shame, disagrees, life must be tough knowing the PS4 is the best.

TheGoodestBoi2175d ago

Jesus I'm so hyped for Spiderman. Partly because it's insomniac and partly because it's Spiderman. And God of war exceeded even my high expectations

Enturax2175d ago

It's not like it had boring and repetitive beginning (a few hours of gameplay), disappointing bosses (except the 1st one), extremely generic platforming (if we can even call it that way), small variety of enemies, terrible looking-for-rune sequences just to open a chest (on the open environment mostly).

No, it was flawless.

doggo842175d ago (Edited 2175d ago )

Maybe it wasnt flawless, but it is still one of the better games released this gen without a doubt.

"It's not like it had boring and repetitive beginning (a few hours of gameplay)"

Your opinion, nothing more. I didn't find one second of playing GOW boring or repetitive. Plus the opening boss fight was more than epic

"disappointing bosses (except the 1st one)"

You just contradicted your first point by saying "except the first one". But yea, the second one can improve on the first in terms of boss battles

"extremely generic platforming (if we can even call it that way)"

Yea sure, because GOW is a platformer at heart /s. By this time it's clear you're digging for reasons to downplay GOW, which i'm finding hilarious.

"small variety of enemies"

Fair enough, that could be one flaw. A minor one considering how great the combat is, but i'll give it to you.

"terrible looking-for-rune sequences just to open a chest (on the open environment mostly)."

Cool, i havent a played a game this gen that matches the quality of God of war overall. Metacritic seems to agree with me http://www.metacritic.com/g... just in case you forgot.

Dark_Knightmare22175d ago

Cool story bro you hated the game no one cares. People are here to celebrate it and whether you agree or not it will be goty and will go down as one of the best games not just this generation but all time

jobboy2175d ago

yeah guy...go back and play your sea of thieves "master of variety" game!

trouble_bubble2175d ago

Enemy variety? Eh. What’s Mario if not turtles and mushrooms, reskinned with wings? This cheep cheep flies. That cheep cheep swims. There’s something to be said for the k.i.s.s principle

AspiringProGenji2175d ago

“It's not like it had boring and repetitive beginning (a few hours of gameplay)“

lol what?

PowerOfTheCloud2175d ago (Edited 2175d ago )

Enturax
Sarcasm seems fun. I'll try myself:

It's not like one small glimpse on your comment history could give the impression that someone at sony inapprobriately touched you when you were a child, like 1 or 2 years ago.

So obviously you have a genuine opinion on gow and not just blind hate.^^
