This instant classic follows the events of the 2013 smash hit The Last of Us, Where Joel and Ellie fight for survival against hoards of infected “runners”, that have mutated from human to zombie in the midst of a global pandemic.

The Reboot that saw the gaming world go crazy for Kratos, and his fatherly – or lack thereof – love for his son, Atreus. This is God of War (2018), the latest entry into the esteemed franchise that has dominated the PlayStation platform and is responsible for multiple Game of the Year accolades attached to Sony Santa Monica.
The campaign see’s an older Kratos, widowed after the untimely passing of his wife Faye. Before she passed, she had requested to be cremated and for her ashes to be scattered atop the highest peak of the Nine Realms.
