There's also a big God of Wars info blowout detailing some new screenshots, combat details and gameplay.
In the recent God of War PS4 rating from the ESRB, we also discovered the extent of the violence.
“ Larger enemies and bosses are dispatched in more intense sequences of violence: Kratos slashing and stabbing a dragon's tongue; a character using an axe to hook and tear off an ogre's jaw. During one sequence, players decapitate (off-screen) an imprisoned character and carry the severed head around; headless corpses also appear in other scenes. “
Even though we're still waiting to play the new God of War, there's even talk about future games in the series. Recently, game director Cory Barlog said that Kratos may dice with death against Egyptian and Mayan Gods.
