Unlike previous games, which were loosely based on Greek mythology , this installment is rooted in Norse mythology , with the majority of it set in ancient Scandinavia in the realm of Midgard. For the first time in the series, there are two protagonists: Kratos , the former Greek God of War who remains the only playable character , and his young son Atreus. Following the death of Kratos' second wife and Atreus' mother, they journey to fulfill her request that her ashes be spread at the highest peak of the nine realms. Kratos keeps his troubled past a secret from Atreus, who is unaware of his divine nature. Along their journey, they encounter monsters and gods of the Norse world. Described by creative director Cory Barlog as a reimagining of the franchise, a major gameplay change is that Kratos makes prominent use of a magical battle axe instead of his signature double-chained blades. God of War also uses an over-the-shoulder free camera , with the game in one shot , as opposed to the fixed cinematic camera of the previous entries.

How would that motivate you to work out every day to get a girl. Thanks for commenting on my blog. However, I'm going to show him your post tonight and hopefully he will agree that it's worth a try. Unfortunately I've been sort of seeing a girl who is basically a real deal Mormon.
