God of War‘s release is now just over a month away, an occasion which marks the first big PS4 exclusive release of the year for Sony. More importantly, God of War is the first new game in the series to be released in five years. Sony plans to go all-out for the release, and as such, it has announced a PS4 Pro bundle that comes with a specially designed console and controller.
As pictured below, the console is primarily silver and grey, with some yellow and dark grey highlights. The top of the console is adorned with the skill tree from the game that’s used to upgrade Kratos’s new Leviathan Axe. On the front, you’ll see runes that represent different realms from the game. The matching controller features a much simpler design with the same colors; the right grip includes the Huldra Brothers brand that’s also seen on the Leviathan Axe, while touchpad has the God of War logo.
Both the system (which is otherwise a standard 1 TB PS4 Pro) and controller are available in the limited edition God of War PS4 Pro bundle. It also includes a physical copy of God of War and unspecified “digital content.” It’ll be released on the same day as the game, April 20, and will cost $400 in the US (the same price as a standard PS4 Pro) or $500 CAD. The bundle will also be available internationally, although specific pricing has not been shared.
As noted above, God of War is the first game in the series since 2013’s God of War: Ascension. The new entry features a markedly different tone from past games, as it centers around Norse mythology (rather than Greek) and the story of Kratos and his son, Atreus. In addition to the base version, there are also more expensive special editions available, though you won’t get those with the new PS4 Pro bundle.
