Hope that doesn't turn out to be a "pet" function like other games.

The New God Of War Has A Button Dedicated To Your Kid

Kratos isn’t alone in the new God of War. Not only does he have a son, that child will be with him for the whole game. The two are so tied together that Sony’s dedicated an entire button on the controller to interacting with the kid.

The relationship between Kratos and his son is central to God of War’s latest installment. The big question at the heart of the game, according to the developers, is whether Kratos is capable of redemption. He paved the roads with blood in his quests, but things are different now that he’s responsible for a life.

In the demo shown at Sony’s press conference, one that was expanded upon in a private presentation I saw this afternoon, the kid will do his best to help Kratos navigate the world and during battle. This doesn’t happen randomly or by accident; there’s a button on the controller (I forgot to ask which!) who’s sole purpose is summoning the kid for a variety of contextual actions in the game.

What that actually means for the game remains to be seen, however. In a fight with a giant troll—the same one from the demo you saw at the press conference—the button prompts the kid to fire electrified arrows that stuns.

Hopefully, we’ll get a better sense of what the kid can do later this year.

Ok. Well... i'm not excited for the babysitter simulator.

No longer a day 1 for me. But i may get it discounted eventually.

Interesting it's good to see companies willing to try different things with there IPs instead of churning the same again and again.

Meh... if theres nothing wrong with it i don't see a problem with churning out the same thing with better graphics everytime.

Reminds me of The Last of Us. If the story is anywhere near as good as that I won't be complaining about having a companion.

The series was pretty stale after 5 regular games imo. Not many series' go longer then that without major changes.

Pretty sure it was 4, unless youre counting the psp ones (then its 6). The last one was a prequal and prequals sell less. But the multiplayer was pretty popular. I'm surprised they dropped it.

Still this is a genre change. A bit too dramatic of a change. They just needed to change the setting cause they ran out of greek gods.

Yeah 6 then, they all kind of blurred into one so I lost count I guess. These kinds of games are popular at the moment so there going with it.
