Sony Announces God Of War Documentary And Release Date

Sony’s iconic PlayStation 4 exclusive, God of War, is one of the company’s most successful titles – and for good reason.

The 2018 reboot of the classic series won countless (literally countless) awards for everything from its storyline to its graphical achievements. It even scooped multiple game of the year awards. Yeah, director Cory Barlog and the team at Santa Monica Studio really knocked it out of the park with GoW.

According to the studio, “Raising Kratos tells the story of how God of War became the metaphor for [the] studio in its entirety…new beginning, treacherous journey, family, struggle, and transformation.”

Santa Monica Studio is still enjoying the huge success of GoW, and it definitely hasn’t shied away from celebrating with its fans.

Last month, the studio rewarded a GoW superfan by surprising him with what he thought was a tour – it turned out to be something a lot more special.

Emanuel Mojica Rosas, from Jalisco, Nayarit in Mexico, has a grand total of 583 God of War items, which he’s accumulated over the last eight years.

Mojica Rosas was crowned a Guinness World Record holder at the Santa Monica Studio event, but what’s even more impressive is the gift he was given from GoW director, Cory Barlog.

Barlog presented Mojica Rosas with the original burned disc for the very first God of War game, which released on the PlayStation 2.

The wonderful occasion was all captured on video, which you can see below from the official PlayStation YouTube channel.
