Is it Christmas yet? The new God of War game has arrived and gamer’s are going crazy. The game is developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. God of War is a hack and slash action adventure game. It is based on Greek mythology. Set in ancient Greece, the awesome game has vengeance as its central story motif.
In the new series, it starts with Kratos the story protagonist and his son Atreus hunting a boar in the woods near their house. Kratos’ son, Atreus shoots an arrow that eventually makes them meet a witch of the wood. She leads them to her home and the mission continues.
Suddenly the entire scenario of the forest changes, the cold, cutting windy woods suddenly become bright, warm and green. Further a mission starts which is filled with thrill and adventure of next gen.
Gamer’s are tripping over it. It is just April 2K18 and here we have a game that is so intense that it tickles your bones.
In the game, the player controls the protagonist i.e. Kratos a Spartan warrior who serves the Olympian gods.
The game play is hell good. It focuses on combo-based combat. The main player’s weapon is called the ‘Blades of Chaos’. Though there is a secondary weapon that the player acquires later in the game.
When the first game came out, it sold more than 4.6 million copies worldwide. It was the eleventh best selling Play Station game of all time in 2005.
The brutal combats, the fight sequences and the frames designed are just mesmerizing. They take you on a journey of events that less of a game play and more of an experience of the both worlds. If there is someone who knows how to turn mythology into the best game ever then it is the makers of the game, Santa Monica Studios!
Let us talk about gaming in general, it is a story based program that moves further the way you play it. It seems as if you are the character yourself. A gamer not only plays the character but lives inside them. Gamer’s feel every pain the character feels, they cry when the player dies and sometimes do even break the monitor when missions seem irritating and they keep on dying.
The General System requirements for the game are-
- 32 bit or above operating system
- Intel core with 2.4 GHZ or more speed
- Random Access Memory (RAM) 4GB minimum
- 25 GB hard drive free space
- And at last, the AMD Radeon 7870 or higher, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or higher with at least 2 GB graphics memory.
Here in the new part, there is a major change where we find Kratos with a son. He protects him and tries to master his rage that has kept him going through years. But the most surprising thing is that he no longer uses his signatory double chained blades, instead he has a new battle axe which he uses in combat and for other daily life activities.
The game has also received universal critical acclaim from critics being praised for its narratives.
The combat system, the revamped combat system and the world design is the heart of the hero. Players who have the system requirements to run it are loving it. There are already a bunch of game plays available on YouTube that showcase the game’s superb frame rate and involving story line.
The game industry makes hundreds of millions of dollars every year and is growing rapidly. We see craze in not only teenagers and youngsters but also in the adults who would love to sit and slaughter some enemies at any point of time.
There are some people who are against games that showcase violence. According to them children learn from what they see and that can end up in severe casualties when tried in real. Though it is mocked that how would a child ever manage to get hold of a double chained blade or a battle axe? Also even if they somehow find those items magically, there will be no further miracle that would give them demo god powers to fly and jump hundreds of meters at once.
So we all should just relax and now adapt that games are slowly becoming a part of our lives. They are tools through which one can relieve themselves of stress and anxiety. Also some people make good living out of gaming too.
The God of War has hit the markets with full rage and it seems that this time Kratos will get his final revenge. Because the same plot over and over again makes a game monotonous like the ‘Prince Of Persia’ series.
The new game has very efficiently given a new kind of story line and acknowledged that “change is the only thing that is permanent.”
