Some rumors are horrible (Prankish Dogs remastering The Last of Us Segment II), some rumors are better, like this one, which claims that Sony Santa Monica would possibly well well well also honest be working on a smaller adventure in the God of War universe.
This got here up in a recent conversation about “half of-games” alongside the traces of Uncharted: Lost Legacy. Leaker ViewerAnon chimed in to discuss about Ragnarok DLC or a half of-sequel in the works. Many imagine this would possibly well be a myth about Atreus specifically, in the vein of Lost Legacy or one thing like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a theory which has worked out successfully for Sony with two of its glorious franchises, as we can search for.
An Atreus sport makes a mode of sense, each narratively and gameplay-sparkling. God of War had trim sections of the game the assign you played as Atreus, a “bow predominant,” as it had been, with bonus mystic powers including undoubtedly remodeling into a endure. He is Loki, finally, in a position to all kinds of tricks and spells. So, vital of that gameplay for the persona has already been created, and it would magnificent desire to be expanded upon.
Past that, God of War Ragnarok ended with (spoilers) Atreus splitting from Kratos in elaborate to explore “lands outside the 9 Realms” in elaborate to search out the relaxation of the giants. It looks logical that this sport would possibly well well well also honest be the events of that adventure, and that presumably it would eventually lead Atreus abet to Kratos for the next full God of War sport, in on the other hand many years that’s intended to near out. The Norse saga for Kratos is over after these two games, and it looks the next scuttle would throw him into a optimistic realm with a brand new space of gods. I procure shock if the game would by some skill uncover a technique to near abet to Greek mythology eventually, despite the total, , ineffective gods over there. It’s fantasy! Folk procure resurrected!
I judge the approved thought is that most players would pretty proceed to play tell material in these universes, even at a lesser scale, in space of wait 5+ years for full sequels. Both Lost Legacy and Miles Morales had been very successfully bought. Miles Morales specifically grew Spider-Man’s storyline to the point the assign each characters are now playable and co-starring in the sequel. So these kinds of games can undoubtedly seriously revenue future full projects as successfully.
So no, I’m no longer keen on infinitely remastering old projects. I am keen on those cheaper, smaller, fine quality “half of-games” that Sony has been making, and I am hoping this Atreus one turns into a truth.
