God of War (2018) Celebrates First Anniversary

Santa Monica Studio is celebrating first anniversary for God of War with new PS4 dynamic theme and avatar set.

It has been a full year since developer Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment has brought us genre defining action-adventure PlayStation 4-exclusive game God of War and it is time for some celebration.

On their first anniversary of Kratos and his son Atreus stepping into a new saga, entire studio is planning a week-long celebration to honor their dedicated fan-base of this beloved action game and they also have a message for community.

Kick-starting their mythical journey back in 2005 when Santa Monica rolled in their first installment for God of War, the studio already celebrated 10 year anniversary of this renowned fan-favorite franchise back in 2015.

Then creative director Cory Barlog came up with a vision that would revamp everything about the series by sending Kratos on a journey to fulfill last wishes of his wife and his son Atreus to honor his mother, while building a dynamic father-son duo.

Bringing change to a long-established game series is not just hard but it comes with a lot of doubt and is a huge risk for entire dev team. However, millions of PlayStation fans have embraced that newly envisioned journey with love and passion.

To show their appreciation, a dynamic PS4 theme and a set of character avatar will be made available from this Wednesday, April 17. Regardless of whether you own the game or not, these two giveaway items are free for everyone at PlayStation Store.

Last year, the game even won "Game of the Year" honor at The Game Awards 2018 and many other prominent outlets with support from an overwhelming number of fans worldwide, which doesn't come to any surprise at all though.

Santa Monica Studio has mastered the craft of storytelling in video games over past two decades and that experience is what shaped God of War to become a masterpiece reflecting their passion for art, something we look up to see in their future games too.
