Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I wrapped up the Valkyries this weekend and I think it's time to move on. I still have one more dragon and some hidden stuff that I don't really feel like searching for and I don't want to get burned out in case they add some DLC down the line. I don't see anything else topping this experience this year. GOTY!

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Cory Barlog has said there's no plans for DLC, so it'll be interesting if that's true or not. My GOTY so far too, I want to play more! Hopefully at least they add a new game+ mode.

Cory Barlog: I made this game to be so that you bought it, you went home and played it, and you got the whole game. There’s not a plan, at all, in any of this, that I was going to deliver any DLC or anything like that, simply because I loved, as a kid, to get a game and play the whole game. And feel like I got everything.

Spoiler:
Kirk Hamilton: Yeah, but your final scene has got Thor standing outside the door with his hammer!

Barlog: But I mean come on, if you played God of War II, you know that I’m not gonna end it with, “everything’s done!” I love the sort of Lord of the Rings concept of, when you finish Fellowship, you’re getting ushered into Two Towers, right? I think, for me, that is the continued engagement. There is the end-of-the-credits scene that teases something, right? And I don’t think anybody watches any of the Marvel movies and goes like, man, you ripped me off, you put this credits scene at the end, when are you gonna finish it? Obviously you’re gonna finish it in the next movie. This is the same. This is all building towards this sort of grand story.


For me, I’m not a huge fan of DLC simply because sometimes it is approached in the manner of, “Okay, well, here’s the game, let me just cut this off and that’ll be DLC.” Also, I need a rest, man! Five years! I don’t wanna jump into DLC right now.
EDIT: Shit, realized there's a spoiler in there, so I spoilerized that part.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Finally finished this game - I definitely didn't get close to 100%, but I did plenty of side stuff during my initial playthrough, so I have zero desire to go back and randomly roam about to see what I may have missed. Nothing important, I assume.

And in case anyone missed it, when you finish your game, go back to your home and rest in your bed to get a quick little post-credit sequence/teaser.

God of War to Get New Game + Mode

Quote:
As you would imagine, New Game + will offer a harder difficulty, but you'll be able to play through the game with all of the upgrades you had when you finished your last main quest. You'll keep your armor, pommels, talismans and everything else, but your character statistics will be exactly the same.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I don't need this game to be any harder - I just want to know how to find what I may have missed.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Each area has a map with the number of objectives left. It doesn't always highlight exactly where you need to go, but at least gives you an idea of what you need to search for.

https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018...hes-august-20/

Quote:
God of War New Game+ will be available as a free patch update on August 20 (that’s our four-month anniversary already). Remember, to access all the greatness of New Game+, you’ll need to complete the story campaign of God of War on any difficulty. If you already did, New Game+ will be ready and waiting for you on August 20 once you’ve patched. If you haven’t beaten the game yet, you’ve got two weeks, friend. Your boat and Axe and BOI are waiting.

So what is God of War New Game+? It’s inspired by your feedback first and foremost.

With New Game+ comes along a host of new gear, more difficult enemies, and cinematic skipping!
  • Relive the journey of Kratos and Atreus with all of your previous armors, enchantments, talismans, resources and abilities on the difficulty of your choosing.
  • Test your skills against higher level enemies; some of which might even have a few new tricks up their sleeves!
  • Unique to New Game+ is a brand new rarity level of equipment to craft and upgrade! Collect ‘Skap Slag’, a new resource to upgrade your gear to the best of the best from our finest blacksmiths.
  • Play the game in a whole new way by exploring new customization options with extremely powerful new armor sets and enchantments.
  • Finally, get right back into the action with the newly added ability to skip through cinematics in both normal and New Game+ modes once a full play through has been completed.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

It's pretty awesome that they went back and added that. It's still too soon for me, but I could see myself revisiting next year on a higher difficulty since I can keep my upgrades.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Yeah, it's cool they added that but I think I'm good. Finished it recently, awesome epic game, but not really into starting over (or going back to search for stuff I missed). But really a fantastic game.

I’m not sure if I’m going to replay this game all over but I’m trying to finish off the Trials and kill off the Valkyries.

God of War's free New Game Plus mode is now live and adds new Valkyrie and Realm Tears updates, among other features.

As detailed on PS Blog, Valkyries are tougher than before in NG+ as they now have different attack patterns. Timed Realm Tears are also being introduced – you won't be able to run away from combat once you open a rift, forcing you to battle Hel-Vikens and Revenants.

Forging new armor sets for both Kratos and Atreus will be an option, which offers new gameplay abilities such as a chest piece that creates massive explosions whenever you stomp on Health or Rage stones.

You'll also be able to convert talismans and armor sets into enchantments, which will allow you to create new combinations that were not possible outside of NG+.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

So I've been playing this for the last month. I was never a huge fan of this series but this game has blown me away. Kratos from I & II was a non-character with zero development for me and I've never been a huge fan of games with fighting mechanics with dozens upon dozens of combos to memorize. Fortunately the story, setting and overall game design in this one has elevated it way higher than any game in the series prior (well, at least I & II as I haven't played III). I'm nearing the end and have poured probably 60+ hours into it. I only have a couple shrines left to find and a couple other trophies (Primordial, Zealot, last Blades upgrade) to clean up. It's been a fun ride.

Now, since I'm not a fighting game guy, I dropped it to easy after a handful of hours. I wasn't going to bang my head against the wall in frustration. It's been far more enjoyable since I did that. Still found a few battles a challenge and still die on occasion but now I'm at the end.... I just spent an hour fighting the Queen Valkeryie Sigurn and still haven't beat her. I'm throwing in the towel tonight. Fuck that bitch. It doesn't seem like she leveled down like everything else in the game. She's annoying as fuck and kicking my ass.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I saved the Valkeryies for after the game once I had really good gear and runes. It made the experience much better IMO.
