God of War has been a very different game from its predecessors. Up until now, we have not been sure how your son will fit into the bloody and violent combat.
For Kratos, it is take your son to work day. The trailer shows Kratos and son fighting some draugar underground. The boy uses a bow, and Kratos uses a magic ax. (We are still coming to terms with the loss of the blades of chaos.) Environmental kills are shown, and it looks like it will not be a long escort mission. We hope.
God of War is coming early 2018.
