With God of War‘s release date drawing close, more information has been coming out regarding the title. One piece of information recently revealed is the game’s file size, which looks to be nearly as epic as the game itself.
The install size for God of War comes in at just under 45GB, which has been seen before on some more recent titles. This file size may not be worrisome to some gamers who have a larger internal hard drive or have an external hard drive for their PS4, but those who still have a 500GB one may need to delete some games to make space for God of War.
For those who are looking to upgrade their PS4, or pick one up for the first time, a limited edition PS4 Pro is coming out for the game, as well. It is worth noting this file size is for both physical retail copies, as well as digital.
The title, which moves the series out of Greek mythology and into the frigid setting of Norse mythology, is set to release later this month. The new setting is not the only thing to change with the newest game, either, as this entry sees Kratos going on a quest with his son in tow. Kratos has also ditched his chain blades in favor of a more Nordic-themed weapon, the Leviathan Axe.
The change in scenery will also bring a change in enemies, as well. No longer will Kratos be battling beasts like minotaurs or harpies. Instead, he will face off against the likes of trolls and draugr, both of which have their places in Norse mythology. A recently released video, which highlighted exploration of the game’s world, showcased an enounter with a troll, as well.
The new title also ditches the panned out camera view of the previous entries in lieu of an over-the-shoulder third person perspective, similar to titles like The Last of Us or Uncharted. Zooming in this close should let players feel like they’re in the middle of the visceral combat sequences the series is known for.
From a performance standpoint, there have been a few other improvements made, as well. The developers stated the game will not feature loading screens and will also offer a performance mode on PS4 Pro.
God of War will be available on April 20, 2018 exclusively for PS4.
