God of war

After seeing that God of War had won 4 awards: Best Storytelling, Best Visual Design, Best Audio and PlayStation Game of the Year, we wanted to share our work on the franchise
God of War centres on Kratos’ life after leaving the gods of Olympus behind. He is now trying to find peace amongst the unfamiliar lands of Norse monsters and gods by taking the ashes of his past wife to a sacred mountain top

We were proud to provide the global media kit for the game's launch. The kit was bespoke and drew on the powerful new storyline of Norse mythology. We also created two Special Editions for the team at the Santa Monica studio, with the kit coming in a wooden box. The box was hand stained and laser engraved with Nordic insignia and the release date.
