God of War is easily one of the most popular video games to ever exist. And in a world where comic books, video games, and book adaptations have become commonplace, it’s only natural that millions of fans who’ve played this video game would want to see it come to life on screen. A God of War adaptation rumour isn’t new, but now, it looks like it’s finally happening.
In the video game, players control Kratos, a Spartan warrior who is sent by the Greek gods to kill Ares, the god of war. As the story progresses, Kratos is revealed to be Ares’ former servant, who had been tricked into killing his own family and is haunted by terrible nightmares.
God of War first launched in 2005 and has since spanned more video game sequels (eight now) with no signs of slowing down. The Sony Playstation property is incredibly popular and continues to receive rave gaming industry awards. With its move to live-action, God of War sets itself to be introduced to a new kind of audience.
Here’s how the God of War series news broke.
