God of War's release date finally confirmed in this (literally) godlike trailer

God of War for PS4 finally has an official release date: it's coming out on April 20, 2018. Sony confirmed the date that Kratos will return with a new trailer that focuses on the story players will uncover as they play the game - particularly the ramifications of a former(?) god wandering off into a new realm and starting a family. Much as he still enjoys shouting and punching, Kratos is driven by far more than just revenge these days.

Sony also announced a new set of rewards for folks who pre-order God of War, including this set of stylish shield skins. I don't think they called different shield designs "skins" back then but they didn't have magic boomerang axes either so whatever.
