God Of War Was Almost Set In Egypt | E3 2016

Sony unveiled a new God of War during its E3 2016 press conference. The game has a Norse mythology focus but that wasn’t always the case. However, Sony Santa Monica had considered a focus on Egyptian mythology for the game.

“Half the team was way into that,” Sony Santa Monica creative director Cory Barlog said during a round-table interview, as reported by Eurogamer. “Egyptian mythology is about the pharaohs as embodiment of the gods on earth and there’s a lot more about civilization.”

He continued: “It’s less isolated, less barren.” The team chose to move away from that idea and towards the Norse setting, as they wanted the focus to stay on Kratos. “Having too much around distracts from that central theme of a stranger in a strange place,” Barlog said.

Either way, Sony Santa Monica deciding to tackle Norse mythology is an exciting prospect for the God of War franchise and exploring Egyptian mythology would have been just as exciting. How do you feel about the new Norse mythology-inspired God of War title? Let us know in the comments below!
