Sony releases 2-hour God of War documentary

Raising Kratos details studio’s ‘sacrifice and struggle’

Sony has released a documentary detailing the development of Santa Monica Studio’s God of War.

The two-hour feature film, which is available for free, follows the “sacrifice, struggle and doubt” surrounding the critically-acclaimed title’s development, according to Sony.

“The ultimate goal was to go beyond a ‘making of’ piece and dig deeper into the experiences of those who spend relentless time and effort into making something great,” PlayStation‘s Scott Rohdes said of the film.

“All creative endeavors, especially those of this magnitude, require an incredible amount of dedication and focus that constantly toe the fine line that separates both success and failure,” he added.

“The hope is that once people see the experience of Santa Monica Studio unfold on the screen, they will recognize the undying passion for their work and the incredible respect they have for their craft.”

The PS4 exclusive was the big winner at this year’s British Academy Games Awards, taking home five prizes including Best Game.
