God of War Set to Bond Father & Son in March

The PlayStation Store has revealed a release date, ahead of this weekend's PlayStation Experience.

One of the more ancitipated games of 2018 will see Kratos go off on wholesome god-killing adventures with his young son. Because cracking skulls and slaying monsters is a surefire way for a father and son to bond, of course. The PlayStation 4 debut for the God of War series was widely expected to release in 2018, but it now looks like there's an official release date.

The posters at ResetEra (via WWG) observed that the Chilean PlayStation Store listed a March 22 release date for the next God of War. The U.S. PlayStation Store has since followed suit, appearing to make this March release date official.

With this deployment date a little more than three months away, it would be a no-brainer that Sony will spotlight the family shenanigans of Kratos & Son heavily at this weekend's PlayStation Experience event (especially after missing last year's show) or even at this Thursday's Game Awards. Keep an eye on Shacknews throughout the weekend for any further news relating to the PlayStation 4's future lineup and Kratos' next adventure.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
