Speaking with God Of War’s Cory Barlog this month was revelatory. He’s channelled a career of Kratos creation and film work into the forthcoming return of the series on PlayStation 4, meaning this God Of War will be more cinematic, contextual, and emotionally rewarding than any that have gone before. Find out how time spent with Mad Max’s George Miller affected God Of War’s game director on p56.
Speaking of film influences, Call Of Duty’s Nazi Zombies is coming back and has been given a Hollywood makeover. The voice cast looks fantastic, and includes ex-Doctor Who David Tennant, and Ving Rhames. Discover who else makes the cut on p16.
There’s more cinematic gaming this issue too. On p52 you can read my verdict on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy; Toy Story turns up in Kingdom Hearts III on p38; and Ben delivers his review of Hellblade on p82. Movie buffs talk about the Golden Age of cinema – are we in the Golden Age of games?
