The newest God of War was years of development, one that saw the franchise’s lead Kratos potentially facing the guillotine before it was decided to resurrect him as a father figure trying to raise his young demigod son (This based on the real life fatherhood that game director Cory Barlog experienced during the game’s development). Not to mention Barlog evolved the narrative to cinematic levels after working with Mad Max director George Miller himself.
Such a long path to the final product, it’s no surprise that a full-length documentary titled Raising Kratos will be released on Playstation’s official YouTube channel. Well, according to Sony, it’s not a documentary but rather, in their words, “A collection of developer experiences and shows how they put ‘relentless time and effort’ into making the award-winning title”. Utilizing over 400 hours of behind-the-scenes footage that chronicles the game’s development from production to it’s public debut at E3 2016. Check out the announcement trailer below:
No official release date has been announced for Raising Kratos as of yet. Stay tuned!
