How Kratos Kicks Ass While Dad-ing in ‘God of War’

Spartan murder machine Kratos is a dad now. Well, he was a dad before, but he was the kind of dad who accidentally massacred his family in a fit of rage and then went on a several-game revenge-spree to punish Ares, the Greek god responsible (kinda) for Kratos’s actions, and then everyone who had ever looked at him wrong—god and mortal alike.

But in the next game he’s a dad again, and he’s trying to make fewer serial killer mistakes this time out. That’s the plot of the new God of War, which developer Sony Santa Monica announced officially at E3 2016 this month with a new and lengthy “Kratos teaches son to hunt and also to kill enormous Norse monsters” video.

That video is back, this time complete with commentary from developers. Lead Gameplay Engineer Jeet Shroff and Combat Designer Mihir Sheth talk about Kratos’s still-badass ass-kicking abilities, despite his being several years older and many hairs beardier.

Shroff and Sheth talk a lot about the new approach to God of War and the combat you’ll be using in the game. And they talk about Kratos’s new dadly tendencies, like trying not to yell at his son for no apparent reason (or very apparent reasons, like shooting Kratos with an arrow by mistake) as they go on an adventure through Norse mythology.
