Love listening to this crew. They are PS based but remain professional when speaking about different games, so it is not a constant praise fest for PS even though there is plenty to praise. I also love when they switch it up and we have in depth talks with devs about their games and the game industry. Keeping being awesome!

In this limited miniseries, we are bringing together developers from different departments across Santa Monica Studio, who collaborated on a feature that helped evolve God of War.

In this limited miniseries, we are bringing together developers from different departments across Santa Monica Studio, who collaborated on a feature that helped evolve God of War.

While we worked hard on developing his positioning, traversal, and progression, it was Atreus’ core combat system that became, perhaps, an even greater challenge. The design, tech, and animations of Atreus’ combat were meticulously planned for almost every imaginable gameplay situation, including how he interacted with Kratos in battle. In this episode of Worlds Collide, we bring together our Senior Staff Technical Combat Designer and Senior Animator to discuss how Atreus’ combat went from feeling mediocre to feeling empowering and eventful.
