God of War took home Game of the Year at the DICE Awards in Las Vegas last night, along with a whole bunch of other awards. Celeste got best indie, while Florence was voted the best portable game. Interestingly, only one award—Outstanding Technical Achievement—for Red Dead Redemption 2.
God of War’s long-awaited New Game Plus will arrive on August 20, Sony said today. The mode comes in a free update and will offer new gear, tougher enemies with “new tricks up their sleeves,” and an option to skip cinematics. No word on whether you’ll be able to change the size of Kratos’s beard.
Today is Father’s Day, and there’s a special new God of War trailer to mark the occasion. It’s full of soaring music that tugs at the heart strings, but it also spoils one of the more moving moments in the game.
