The rebooted God of War had a strong showing at E3 last night with a new gameplay trailer that features a giant sea monster.
If there’s one game you knew would make it into Sony’s show last night, it was the upcoming Norse reboot of God of War. Although it didn’t close out the show, it made a memorable appearance in a trailer that showed off gameplay, combat, and even had a sighting of a giant sea serpent.
The sea monster, which the boy calls “The World Serpent,” is very likey Jörmungandr, the mythological child of Loki. It is said to be large enough to encircle the world and grab its own tail, and when it releases it, Rangnarok (the apocalypse in Norse mythology) will begin. Could Kratos be the bringer of the apocalypse? It would certainly fit his past personality.
There’s still no firm release date for God of War, but the trailer says we can expect it in “early 2018.”
