God of War: A Father’s Day Tribute

Posted by on Jun 17, 2018

We hope that trailer leaves a lasting impact because today is Father’s Day, a day with a very special meaning to the new beginning of God of War. At its heart, this is a story of a father and his son on an incredible adventure and a deeply personal quest together. Therein lies a connection for all of us between their story and the ones all of us have shared with our fathers, or for anyone who is a parent to a child.

16 Tips to Conquer the “Give Me God of War” Difficulty Mode

Posted by on May 16, 2018

Heyo! My name is Mihir Sheth and I’m a senior combat tech-designer here at Santa Monica Studio. Now that God of War has been out for some time – and plenty of players have experienced the combat themselves – I wanted to take a moment to talk about “Give Me God of War,” the hardest difficulty mode available. As many of you have likely noticed, Give Me God of War sets itself up ominously with bold red text stating that the difficulty cannot be changed mid-game. It’s not for the faint of heart!

Hopefully this post (along with the plethora of great player-made resources already online) can remove some of the mysticism behind the difficulty mode, and offer some advanced combat tips and techniques in the process!
