'God Of War' News: Missing Out In PlayStation Experience 2016? PS4 Release Date & More Explained [VIDEO]
After the initial unveiling of "God of War" back at E3 2016 in June, fans of the critically-acclaimed franchise have been eagerly waiting for news about the PS4-exclusive and its release date. As the PlayStation Experience 2016 event comes in December, fans might be disappointed to hear less of the game during their attendance there, according to sources.
It was reported that the latest installment to the "God of War" franchise will not be shown nor featured in the upcoming PlayStation Experience 2016 event in Dec. 3 and 4 at Anaheim, California, Gamespot learned.
This news came about when the action-adventure game's director, Cory Balrog, went on his Twitter account to post that the game won't be shown during the event, Gamspot reported. He also told fans of the game that he will be attending the event but only to spend time with PlayStation fans and to try out the games to be featured in the event, according to the source.

In fact, Gamespot took note that Sony themselves have not yet announced the final list of games that would be showcased nor any details of what might be featured in the event. Despite the lack of any preview of the game at the highly-anticipated PlayStation,Experience 2016 event, fans can rest assured that any news regarding the hack-and-slash game will be released in the future and it is definitely something for them to look forward too. Cory Balrog went on with a second tweet to address "God of War" fans, promising them that the long wait will all be worth it, Gamespot noted. The game director posted that once the game is ready, he will definitely show something amazing to the fans.

Inspiration behind 'God of War'
Moreover, Gamespot reiterated how the game developer explained the inspiration behind the latest PS4-installment to "God of War," which was a canceled 'Star Wars' TV show. Balrog went on to elaborate that this should offer a "more diverse palette" to its fans, the source reported.
Other sources shed light to some other features of the game and its release date. One such feature is a dedicated button in the PS4 controller that enables the player to interact with Kratos' son, PC Advisor reported.
As for the release date, there hasn't been an official announcement yet, and PC Advisor took note of Balrog saying that the trailer is merely a preview of the early developments of the game. As such, it might be quite some time until we hear more news about the game's final release date.
