Game looks Great !!!!
I don't know if this is a sequel. It came across more as a reboot set in Norse mythology (even though it said "Spartan Rage" during the big fight). Plus, the panel at the end of the gameplay demo simply said "God of War" with no number or subtitle attached. The glyphs and dragon at the end definitely doesn't say Greek to me. It also could simply be that Kratos has moved on with his life after killing all the Greek gods, so more of a reboot to his own life and not the entire game's universe.
Either way, the change in gameplay direction certainly has my interest piqued.
You'd be surprised how good looking Sony Santa Monica makes their games, look at God of War 3 on the PS3 - way ahead of its time.This is the first GoW I want to play. looks epic.
Graphics will look significantly worse once the game is ACTUALLY released though. Guaranteed that was running on a 1080 + i7.
December 2017 very long wait.....

I'm willing to bet this was run off of a PS4K dev kit though, as was the Horizon footage we saw at E3.
Japanese trailer I wonder if the Axe is the main weapon for the whole game kinda weird they traded in the signature chains. The sound effects and background ambience and the music is top notch.
I'm 100% okay with the change. The old games ran their course. Making yet another one would be heading into Assassin's Creed territory. A total reinvention can hopefully give us another Tomb Raider situation.
We've had 6 games with chain whips. They were awesome at the time but I'll be happy if they never return.
While we are at it, let's trade out Thors hammer for a rubber mallet.
Wolverine can use butter knives.
Batman can drive a black Prius.
