Apr. 20th, 2018

I love this trailer. After I saw it, I pre-ordered the game.

So, April 20, 2018…mark the date on your calendar people.   Clear that schedule, tell your significant other they are wonderful, because that is always a nice thing to do, and then wonder what you will do with all that free time you have now that you don’t need to keep asking me when the release date is.  

Thank you everyone for your continued support of our game making addiction. I will do my best to keep sharing information as we head towards launch. 

…But wait, there’s more! I’m proud to share our limited Collector Editions and Digital Deluxe Edition whose every component is connected back to the Norse universe and story of our game.

I should first mention, if you pre-order *any edition* (or already did) at a supporting retailer, you’ll acquire these 3 legendary shield skins (which you’ll need internet to access!) for Kratos to bash and defend against all manner of creatures we created in the brutal Norse wilds.

If you pre-order any edition at GameStop or EB Games, you’ll also receive the Luck of Ages XP Talisman which improves the wearer’s luck, providing: 

  • Increase XP gain

  • Increase Hacksilver gain

  • Increase the ability to trigger Perk

The 9’’ statue was crafted by our team in collaboration with the incredible folks at Gentle Giant. The cloth map is a unique companion to your journey, and an art piece on its own. The Huldra Bros. carvings pack as much detail as their personas do in game. Just a few of the highlights, not to mention the digital items as well!

Available in the US and Canada only, this edition includes everything in the Collector’s Edition along with 4 very distinct, rare items directly from the game. You might recognize Atreus’ wooden Horse and Troll carvings from our E3 2016 debut. They complete the collection with the Huldra Bros btw. The Stone Mason Ring is a finely crafted piece of jewelry, whose story we won’t spoil. The talking Mimir Head keychain may be your personal favorite after you interact with him in game. Massive credit to Gentle Giant capturing the exquisite detail of these!

If digital only is king for you, we didn’t forget. Adorn the legendary Death’s Vow Armor Set to increase your strength, and honor the solemn promise that sends Kratos and Atreus on their journey through the Norse wilds of Midgard and beyond. The digital comic book from Dark Horse, Issue #0 starts to unearth the story of Kratos before his quest with Atreus begins. Not to mention both the digital comic and mini art book will come with exclusive creator commentary tracks.

Finally, available to addresses in the US and Canada only, pre-order this Digital Deluxe beauty to get a sweet exclusive shiny limited run God of War physical pin.

Again, mark your calendars for God of War’s release on April 20! If you’re not convinced yet, watch that trailer one more time or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more development updates!
