So it looks like this isn't in development yet, they're still hiring for their team to work on it.

Oh that sucks. Was hoping we'd see it in the next 6 months.
I hate when you hear about a game and then don't see it released for a few years.

Going to be avoiding spoilers for the next 3 weeks as I have the Stone Mason edition preordered from Amazon US since January. Checked last night to see what the price is and if you were to order it now, the price is now over $300! Glad I got in early.

I enjoyed God of War 3, but prefer a bit more depth or complexity than hack and slash adventure generally. I'll pick this up eventually.
Seen lots of positive reviews for this (9.5-10 / 10), with a metascore of 94, it's the highest rated sony exclusive, and record breaking sales in it's first week; Goes to show the developers 'gamers dont want single player games' comments are false. They want to justify their 'games as a service model' which has them making money off microtransactions, loot boxes and dlc.
I'm glad to see developers rewarded financially and with positive reviews (like this, witcher 3, last if us) as ive always enjoyed single player games with a great story (waits for sw kotor remake  :troll: )

I've only played the first "level" or so and find it spectacular.
I say level as apart from a title change flashing across the screen it's pretty seemless. Just like Naughty Dog with Uncharted/TLoU where cinematic and gameplay are so perfectly blended you don't realise where either begins/ends until you lose/regain controller movement again.

I really like the change up from the previous GoW titles. Though it's still a little hack & slash, the story so far is solid and the RPG aspects of upgrading/unlocking skills etc looks like it could keep it interesting. I'm already attacking in different ways each time to experiment.

So far, very pleased with it... will see if this continues as I progress.
