God Of War PS4 Guide: The 13 Best Skills To Unlock First
Created by Matt Espineli on
God of Skills
God of War's combat is fairly limited at first, but once you start acquiring more Skills, battles become more complex. Enemies only get tougher as the game goes on, so it helps that there are ways to defend yourself.
During the first five to six hours of your adventure, you don't earn a lot of XP. With so little to go around, you'll have to prioritize which combat skills to unlock. There's not a lot of wiggle room early on, so it's important to start thinking about which skills best suit your playstyle. But don't fret, you're not forced to unlock certain skills over others the whole way through; you'll eventually nab enough XP to unlock every ability on the skill tree. Until then, choose your skills wisely.
To help you get an idea over what skills are worth unlocking, we've gathered what we believe to be some of the best early on. But what skills do you like the most? Let us know in the comments below.
