The body of former WWE wrestler, martial artist, and actor Shad Gaspard was found Wednesday morning on California’s Venice Beach, after being carried away by a riptide over the weekend while saving his 10-year-old son’s life. Gaspard was the body model and a motion-capture artist for Kratos in 2018's God of War.
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.
