Sony has finally announced the release date of God of War for PS4! April 20th, 2018 is the official release date for the franchise's soft "re-boot". Along with the news of the release date, Sony also confirmed that several special editions will be made available as well as special pre-order bonus skins for the Kratos' in-game shield.

In addition to the skins for the shield, if you pre-order through GameStop or EBGames (in Canada) you will receive some additional perks:
  • Increase XP gain
  • Increase Hacksilver gain
  • Increase ability to trigger perks

Now for the special editions themselves:

Available for $129.99

The 9’’ statue was crafted by our team in collaboration with the incredible folks at Gentle Giant. The cloth map is a unique companion to your journey, and an art piece on its own. The Huldra Bros carvings pack as much detail as their personas do in game. Just a few of the highlights, not to mention the digital items as well!

Available for $149.99
Available in the US and Canada only, this edition includes everything in the Collector’s Edition along with four very distinct, rare items directly from the game. You might recognize Atreus’ wooden Horse and Troll carvings from our E3 2016 debut. They complete the collection with the Huldra Bros, btw. The Stone Mason Ring is a finely crafted piece of jewelry, whose story we won’t spoil. The talking Mimir Head keychain may be your personal favorite after you interact with him in game. Massive credit to Gentle Giant capturing the exquisite detail of these!

Available for $69.99

If digital only is king for you, we didn’t forget. Adorn the legendary Death’s Vow Armor Set to increase your strength, and honor the solemn promise that sends Kratos and Atreus on their journey through the Norse wilds of Midgard and beyond. The digital comic book from Dark Horse, Issue #0 starts to unearth the story of Kratos before his quest with Atreus begins. Not to mention both the digital comic and mini art book will come with exclusive creator commentary tracks.

One of the few times a physical item is included with a digital purchase on PSN

Finally, available to addresses in the US and Canada only, pre-order this Digital Deluxe beauty to get a sweet, exclusive, shiny, limited-run God of War physical pin.
