Update: The suggested retail prices of all editions of God of War in Singapore have been revealed, and they are as follows: Blu-ray Disc Standard Edition (S$72.90), Blu-ray Collectors’ Edition (S$184.90), Digital Standard Edition ($64.90), and Digital Deluxe Edition (S$78.90).
Amidst all the potential leaks and retailer listings, we finally have confirmation of the release date for one of the PlayStation 4’s marquee titles in 2018.
God of War will be available this coming April 20.
Announced on the PlayStation Blog, together with a new Story Trailer (above), Santa Monica Studios’ creative director Cory Barlog talks more about the journey of making the game as well as thanking fans for the continued support.
More importantly, we got more information about the “Limited Collector’s Editions and Digital Deluxe Edition, whose every component is connected back to the Norse universe and story of our game.”
Pre-ordering any edition of God of War will entitle you to these three legendary shield skins for “Kratos to bash and defend against all manner of creatures we created in the brutal Norse wilds.”
There will also be the GameStop/EB Games exclusive pre-order bonus of Luck of Ages XP Boost, which grants +10 Luck and has 1 Enchantment Slot.
Luck will give you increased XP gain, increased Hacksilver gain, and increase the ability to trigger Perks. Gamers in Asia will certainly get something akin to this bonus with local retailers.
The previously revealed Stone Mason Edition is real at US$149.99, and will have the following goodies:
- 9″ Kratos & Atreus Statue by Gentle Giant
- Limited Steelbook Case
- 2″ Huldra Brothers Carvings
- Exclusive Lithograph
- Cloth Map
- Stone Mason’s Ring
- Mimir’s Head Talking Keychain
- 2″ Horse and Troll Carvings
Digital Contents include:
- Defender of the Chosen Shield
- Death’s Vow Armor Set
- Exile’s Guardian Shield
- God of War Digital Comic #0 by Dark Horse
- God of War Digital Mini Artbook by Dark Horse
- Dynamic Theme
The Collector’s Edition (US$129.99) has the same items as the Stone Mason Edition, with the exception of the Stone Mason’s Ring, Mimir’s Head Talking Keychain, and the 2″ Horse and Troll Carvings.
The Digital Deluxe Edition (US$69.99) will grant you the game, the Dark Horse Comics Digital Artbook, the God of War Digital Comic Issue #0, a Dynamic Theme, the legendary Death’s Vow Armor Set and the Exile’s Guardian Shield.
For folks in the US and Canada, pre-ordering the Digital Deluxe Edition also nets you a “sweet, exclusive, shiny, limited-run God of War physical pin.”
Are you set for April 20? Not only is God of War coming out, the Nintendo LABO will also release on that day. Perfect if you are into crafting stuff instead of destroying them.
Alternatively, you may pre-order at the PlayStation Store from January 24, 2018 onwards, and explore the world of Norse mythology before everyone else!
