Not that we needed more reasons to get on the God of War hype train but there it is - Sony have launched God of War: Mimir's Vision for Apple's iOS and Google's Android platforms, letting players take an AR peek into Kratos' new world.
Of course, we're still well in the domain of Kratos and the revamped God of War - it's just that the head you may have seen dangling off Kratos has now got its game. Man, Kratos makes everyone look good.
Jokes aside, the game is Augmented Reality based and will give you a unique insight into the world that awaits Kratos on his new journey. In fact, all the in-game locations are contained therein so until the real thing is here, you may as well look around a bit.
The reason why we may not have heard about it earlier is probably the fact it wasn't developed by Cory and the gang. Indeed, God of War: Mimir's Vision's Play Store and App Store links list PlayStation Mobile Inc. as the developer.
The description says users can swipe across the map the way they see fit and open points of interest "to learn the lore behind this realm of many mysteries". How about a mystery as to how Kratos chopped off the dude's head?
Anyhow, God of War: Mimir's Vision claims the proud bearer of the game's name has "seen it all", most likely prior to being dismembered by our favourite bald deity. The game packs all the locations, "from The River Pass to The Mountain Peak" so get ready for some pre-launch browsing.
Mimir's Vision requires ARCore on Android 7.0 (Nougat) and later and you can find it here on Google Play Store . Appletons will also require AR services and the new God of War will run on iOS 9.0 and higher, meaning iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices. You can find in here on the App Store .
The game weighs in at 436.8MB and seeing as how not all mortals get Cory and Co's previews, we all might as well indulge until the real thing is here.
