God of War is probably PS4's best game and it’s certainly the biggest exclusive on the PlayStation this year. So plenty of people are looking for ways to buy God of War cheap. The story of Kratos travelling with his son, Atreus, captivated so many players when it first released. Losing his trademark chain-blade weapons and trading them in for the Leviathan Axe, Kratos battles across the world of Midgard to spread the ashes of Atreus’ mother at the highest peak of the Nine Realms. The latest in the saga charts a story of epic proportions as the father and son duo battle monsters and Gods from Norse mythology.
Bringing some of the most beautiful visuals to the PlayStation 4, Santa Monica Studios has created a modern masterpiece which has players hunting down secrets, fighting huge creatures and yet takes time out of the carnage for some genuinely wonderful moments of emotion. God of War empowers players, giving them use of a raft of upgradable powers that crush enemies. It wouldn’t be an open world epic without RPG elements, spending currency and some light puzzle solving, but none of these things should distract you from the coming-of-age tale that lingers hauntingly among the bodies of your foes. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see this latest adventure top the Game of 2018 lists. It's already high up in our best PS4 games.
The best deals on God of War (PS4)
What do the critics say about God of War?
“It is rare to play a game so accomplished in everything it sets out to do. God of War is a standard-setter both technologically and narratively. It is a game that, until recently, would have been impossible.” – The Guardian 5/5
What other versions of God of War can you buy?
Along with the standard edition of the game, there are several other options to look at, should you still be able to find them.
A collector’s edition - The Stone Mason Edition - comes loaded with physical extras, including a cloth map, lithograph, two small carved figures, steelbook case and, perhaps best of all, a 9” statue of Kratos and Atreus. The statue is beautifully designed, showing father and son mid-battle. This edition of the game also comes with digital content; a dynamic theme for your PS4, a comic and art book from Dark Horse, the Death’s Vow armour and Exile’s Guardian shield (which boosts XP, luck and adds an enchantment slot).
The Limited Edition comes in a steelbook case, with a physical art book from Dark Horse included. While there’s still some digital content, only the dynamic theme, armour and shield are bundled.
Are there God of War console bundles?
Don’t already own a PS4 and want this stellar game to be your introduction? There’s a limited edition console to be had, too. A 1TB PS4 Pro decorated in the style of the Leviathan Axe – grey with runic symbols adorning the top of the console itself. The console comes bundled with a physical copy of the ‘Day One’ edition of the game – which includes the digital items and limited edition cover art, as well as a matching DualShock 4 controller. Just, er, beware the shockingly high price - the console has become VERY collectable.
The limited edition grey DualShock 4 is available separately, as well as bundles of the standard 500GB PS4, which includes the base version of God of War. If you want something a little cheaper... check out our best PS4 bundle deals.
