It’s been a while since we’ve had a new, big God of War game, and it looks the new one has been worth the wait.

God of War is the first new entry on PS4. There’s no number attached to it, but it stars the same Kratos we know from the older games.

Kratos has moved to Midgard (Scandinavia), leaving behind his former life as he starts a new family and learns to control his anger. For most of the game, Kratos will be accompanied by his son, Atreus, who will help him take out enemies and learn from him along the way.

Unlike earlier iterations, the new God of War will play out from the behind-the-back perspective for the entirety of the game, with no cuts for pre-rendered scenes or anything else.

God of War features four difficulty settings, and will allow you to customise the HUD to turn off unnecessary icons.

Take a look at the reviews so far below. As always, these scores are out of ten except where noted.

God of War is out now on PS4.
