In celebration of God of War’s one year anniversary this week, I wanted to pay homage to my favorite video game of all-time. After releasing on April 20, 2018 on the PlayStation 4, God of War has made it’s mark in the gaming industry with over 190 Game of the Year awards worldwide. From superb narrative storytelling, to the incredible graphics, the phenomenal acting, the fun combat system and gameplay, along with a remarkable soundtrack, God of War has the complete package. This is truly one of the best video games of our generation and in history. Not to mention that it resonated with myself because it is held in the realm of Norse mythology and focuses on a journey with a father and his son.
If you haven’t had a chance to play this game, I wanted to give you a taste of the characters, setting, and pieces that created this world. Below, you can take a Journey Through the Norse Lands with me as I provide in-game photos that I have captured with Photo Mode from my time with God of War through my three playthroughs (and now my fourth as we speak). Most of the photos will be relevant toward Norse mythology as you will see gods, Valkyries, dragons, the Midgard Serpent, different realms, creatures and more!
At the end of our journey here, check out where you can find more God of War information. As well as a link to the novelization, a short series podcast, the newly announced card game releasing this year and details on the week-long celebration of God of War’s one year anniversary.
