The brand new God of War on PlayStation 4 will be single-player only. The game was recently announced at Sony’s E3.
Director, Cory Barlog has confirmed that Krato’s son will not be a distraction from combat while he is around as he will be able to hold his own ground. This is great news as you will not have to flee away from a fight to protect or save him.
It has also been confirmed that Kratos has yet to tell his son of what kind of past he has had. However I am guessing he is going to have a pretty good idea by the end of the game.
