It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created. An intimate chronicle of the years-long odyssey to bring Kratos and Atreus’s beautiful and brutal world to life. Step into Midgard and explore beyond, as Dark Horse Books and Santa Monica Studio proudly present the quintessential companion to the enormously anticipated God of War. This is a document unlike any other that sets readers on an exhaustive behind-the-scenes journey to witness the creation of an epic of tremendous scale.

Games as Art. The book opens with a very brief foreword by Cory Barlog in which he describes video games as art. Most of the paintings in the book depict locations while the others depict characters, creatures, weapons and there are a few double-page paintings. Many of the creature paintings appear in the ‘The Lost Pages’ series of videos which were posted online before the game’s release.Compared to Marvel’s ‘Art of’ series there are very few character and creature concept paintings. There is surprisingly little of The Witch of the Woods and I would have preferred more images of Kratos and the other characters. The game includes some stunning armour sets for Kratos but some of these are not included in the book.This art book is a suitable companion to the strategy guide. Those collectors looking for lots of character and creature concept art may be disappointed.

I wanted more I love video game art books. I know GOW is supposed to be dark however after playing the game I wanted more from this book. It did not wow me like game did. I’ve barely picked the book up since I brought it
