God of War's Immersion Mode turns off all unnecessary HUD elements

God of War crafting system has evolved since last game

If you want to play the new God of War with a clean, unobstructed view of Kratos and his son Atreus fighting foes both human and supernatural, you're in luck. The leak comes just two weeks from the game's release of 23 April 2018.

For those looking for more (or less) of a challenge, God of War will feature four different difficulty options to choose from.

'Lead Gameplay Designer Jason McDonald and Lead Systems Designer Vince Napoli were recently featured in an interview with PlayStation Lifestyle, where they discussed the difficulties and challenges they had to overcome during development.

For reference, when describing this difficulty level Sony said it was for "those who wrestle polar bears in their undies" and from what is understood that is putting it mildly. Now I've never had the privilege to do this, as polar bears are quite hard to come by where I live, but it sounds like something that could be very hard to do. Also, if you find yourself having a hard time with this difficulty, you will not be able to change to an easier difficulty unless you start all over again. We've been seeing several different trailer reveals of what to expect from the new vision of God of War and Kratos as well as how players can shape his growth over the course of the game. The option can be turned on or off through the settings menu at anytime in-game. "There's no right or wrong way to play; you'll certainly have a lot of helpful info close at hand if you're playing with the HUD fully enabled", Shroff wrote. For more, check out GameSpot's new video where we play the game alongside Stranger Things star David Harbour and game director Cory Barlog. Says Sony, "Don't be sorry, be better?" Not only that but the developers have looked at individual encounters and enemy behaviors to try and make the interactions as threatening as possible. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very unsafe world with his son.

It's not long now until we learn how Norse God of War stacks up compared to the Greek God of Wars.
