We’ve been waiting for some time for the God of War release date to be confirmed. Well, worry no more, as PlayStation Blog has just confirmed that God of War will release on April 20th, 2018!

Check out the new story trailer here: 

From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for one of gaming’s most recognizable icons. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

This is super exciting! I can’t wait to start tearing through a roster of Norse monstrosities. They’ve also confirmed that all pre-orders will come with three new shield skins. If you want more than just the basic version however, here’s the various special editions:
