How far is it possible that we may see God of War 5 release? It was an ambitious dream till recently. However, now that the fourth part is in progress we can certainly speculate on God of War 5 gameplay and other features.
It is useless expecting this part to be released soon. Since Sony does not reveal any details on release date of the fourth part, we may hope that God of War 5 will come one day.
There a lot of rumors about this game. Some have even found an image depicting God of War 5 cover which has not been confirmed officially. Nevertheless, there is God of War 5 trailer on the Internet which looks rather convincing and promising. If so, there is a possibility that the new part will go as Redemption.
Hardly can we expect the fifth part for any other platform than PS. There are assumptions that God of War 5 will use VR device as well as GoW 4.
Even though God of War 5 trailer does not reveal many details about the storyline we still hope that it will focus on son of Kratos. He may grow up since the fourth part so he can be introduced as secondary character. On the other hand, he can be just an option. In other words, you may be able to summon him in difficult situations. Thus, the main features of God of War 5 gameplay are going to depend on use of the son. There is a possibility that some enemies can be defeated only with his help which rather reasonable for the game of the type.
Hardly can we expect old gods returning in this part. In fact we are bound to see Kratos who will be much more brutal and his son who will be older. Nevertheless, introduction of new creatures is quite possible.
The thing unchangeable for God of War 5 trailer is that it is brutal third person slasher. It is said that new generation of this genre is going to offer you better scenery with unforgettable graphics. Kratos may get a set of new weapons. However, his classical blades may well stay. Introduction of new abilities of his son will definitely influence gameplay. In which way? We will learn more about closer to release date. The idea is to focus God of War 5 gameplay on secondary role of Kratos’ son. It means you will be able to use him as an archer to snipe enemies down, for example. Perhaps he will learn a few magical tricks which will make the game even better.
