    God of War has received 15 minutes of new gameplay footage, courtesy of PlayStation Underground, on the official PlayStation YouTube account. The combat on display is much different from previous God of War games, offering a heavier style, less reminiscent of a button masher brawler, and allegedly more similar to Bloodborne, as claimed by the PlayStation Blog. We also get a better look at how Kratos's Leviathian Axe works, being able to throw your axe from afar and let it boomerang back into his grasp. This trailer also showcases the game running at checker-boarded 4K resolution, on the PS4 Pro. The new God of War launches later next month, on April 20th.

    Biggest disappointment of this generation for me. I was SO hyped when I saw the reveal trailer. Cannot believe one of my favorite series is following the "Generic RPG" path.

    What are you talking about "generic rpg"? Looks nothing like an rpg to me and very much like a God of War game - just without his blades.

    You are one of those guys who keep complaining before the game got released.
    Looks like you don't know what is RPG.

    I LOVE this new battle system. The fact that they included "press down on dpad to quick turn" Shows that they know the camera slightly limits you and that they are balancing the game around that as well. It looks very well thought out despite the massive difference. The fact that Atreas distracts enemies that get behind you is pretty dank too, his AI is legit. The story is the selling point for me, just seeing where the story of Kratos leads. I can only imagine the crazy shit the devs are gonna throw at us this time.

    I'm guessing because of the weapon, that it feels a little bit like the old GOW. Looks like you can't hurt the kid. Which is a good think, since he can't get in the way.

    Besides the Textures it has nothing to do with the old God of War Series.
    I am really dissapointed to see its now more like Skyrim or the Souls games in battle system.

    Apart from that it's looking breathtaking.

    It looks interesting,but i still dont know how it will work with its story and how they will eventually fill in the god of war 3 ending cliff hanger.As much as i love god of war as a series,only reviews will tell if its any good.

    If you watched the interview of the game director, he did say they wanted it to have a combat system like the Dark Souls but not to make it into another Dark Soul. Guess we can only wait and find out.
