New God of War Not Showing Up at PlayStation Experience, Director Says

But Sony will show something "really awesome" later on.


Sony's new God of War game for PlayStation 4 won't show up at the PlayStation Experience event in November. This is according to game director Cory Barlog, who said on Twitter that he "won't be showing anything of the game at PSX." He will be at the event, but only to "hang out with PlayStation fans and play games."

In another tweet, Barlog said the wait will be worth it. "I promise we will be showing something really awesome when it is ready," he said.

PlayStation Experience 2016 takes place December 3 and 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Sony has not yet announced a full lineup of games that will be at the show or offered any details on what might be announced.

The new God of War game was announced at E3 2016 in June. Later that month, Barlog talked about how the game was influenced by a canceled Star Wars TV show and will offer a "more diverse emotional palette."

Barlog previously spoke to GameSpot about the challenge of making people take Kratos seriously. He also talked about reinventing Kratos and the series' perspective, in addition to why the angry Spartan can find himself in the middle of Norse mythology.

The new God of War is set after the events of third game, and it won't feature an open world--though Barlog did say it was "open." It also won't feature the original Kratos voice actor, T.C. Carson. The role has instead been taken over by Stargate SG-1 actor Christopher Judge.

Additionally, the new God of War will not feature any multiplayer, while fans discovered that the game's E3 announcement trailer contained some secrets.
