Plus, Santa Monica Studios details what gameplay enhancements PS4 Pro owners can expect
We are very excited to announce that a God of War Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro bundle will launch alongside the game on 20th April, 2018.
This special bundle features a fully customised Leviathan Grey 1TB PS4 Pro console inspired by Kratos’ Axe, a matching Dualshock 4 wireless controller with insignia and a copy of God of War Day One Edition on Blu-ray disc. With PS4 Pro, you’ll be able to experience Kratos’ journey through the wilds of Midgard in stunning 4K*.
This limited edition bundle will be available in select retailers across the region, and pre-orders start today.
Additionally, the God of War Limited Edition Dualshock 4 will be available to buy standalone on 20th April, as well as a PS4 1TB Jet Black bundle with a copy of God of War on Blu-ray disc.
This Limited Edition God of War PS4 Pro was designed in close collaboration with Santa Monica Studios, bringing to life Kratos’ Leviathan Axe.
Shannon Studstill, Head of Santa Monica Studio, shares the background and thoughts that went into the special unique design of the custom PS4 Pro:
“When we designed Kratos’ new Leviathan Axe, we knew it would have far more meaning not only to the game, but to our fans. Santa Monica Studios was extremely proud to adorn the custom PS4 Pro with the Leviathan Axe in such detailed fashion. We spent a painstaking amount of time to ensure this PS4 Pro was special, for the special fans who will cherish it.
“The top front panel is the Axe skill tree you’ll use in-game to upgrade your axe, along with the runic gem slots on the handle that enable unique special abilities.
“The side panels are trimmed with a beautiful Norse design, and the runes on the front each represent a realm in the game. The Leviathan Grey DualShock 4 wireless controller has the Huldra Brothers brand on it (just like the Axe), and a very subtle God of War logo on the touchpad.
“I enjoyed every bit of the design process with Cory and the team, because we were united in our vision of what we wanted the custom PS4 Pro to embody. The game looks absolutely stunning on PS4 Pro and we can’t wait to share a new beginning for God of War with you, when it launches on 20th April.”
