The new God of War series promises epic action and strong ties to the original story from the last two games.

Amazon officially confirmed that they will begin with the production of the God of War TV series last week, and now in an interview with Collider , Amazon Studio's head of television, Vernon Sanders, said that their adaptation of God of War will be "incredibly faithful to the source material."

Sanders said he is aware that God of War has passionate admirers, but that the series was chosen for adaptation not for that reason but for the possibilities of the story itself. As he explained, God of War has a great epic storyline, but it's also a story about fathers and sons, which is why the series may appeal to those who don't play video games.

"I think what the showrunner and the writers have come up with for the first season and the series is both incredibly true to the source material and also compelling on its own. If you have never played the game, you will fall in love with the show and feel very much invited in. So we think it's going to be huge," Sanders added.

Some God of War fans are already criticising the idea to base the series only on the game's plot, considering that the game is already excessively cinematic and developing a series with a similar premise makes no sense. 

On the other hand, two TV series based on the video games, Resident Evil and Halo , were criticised for deviating from the original story. We sincerely hope that the producers of the God of War series will find the perfect balance.

Aside from Resident Evil and Halo, which came out this year, there haven't been many TV series adaptations of video games. We expect the premiere of HBO's The Last of Us in January next year, and, of course, God of War, about whom we know almost nothing.
