Yesterday, Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) announced the availability of the new PlayStation 4 Pro God of War Limited Edition console come April 2018. Similar to your regular PlayStation 4 that you can find on the shelves, this bundle comes packed with a PlayStation Pro equipped with 1TB of HDD, a DUALSHOCK 4 controller, and a physical copy, Blu-ray disc of the new God of War.
According to the reveal trailer, the surface of the PlayStation 4 Pro console is a decal representing the Leviathan Axe that was shown in the God of War trailers. On the right side, you can spot the handle of the axe filled with runic gem stones. On the head of the axe are the skill trees that you unlock in-game. Of course, they do not light up, that will probably require a painstaking custom-made job. On the side panels, you can also spot runes from the game as well. As for the DUALSHOCK 4 controller, it comes in Silver, just like the console, but it comes with a God of War logo on the touchpad, coupled with a Hulda Brothers brand on the right grip of the controller. We can’t be sure how the decals will hold up after using it for a long time, but if you plan on adding protective sheet to keep it mint, make sure you don’t remove them, as the decals might be removed along with it.
In God of War, you play as Kratos, the main character throughout the series, who embarks on a journey with his son, Atreus into the Norse wildlands to fulfil a personal quest, while Atreus will have find out who he really is and what it means to his life after Kratos’ eventual passing. It was also hinted that this game will be the last game that we will be playing as Kratos.
The PlayStation 4 Pro God of War Limited Edition will be available come April 2018, with no set date, and is priced at RM1,999. Aside from the PlayStation 4 Pro console and DUALSHOCK 4 controller, it also comes with premium digital content codes for the game, as well as a special dynamic PS4 theme. A PlayStation Plus membership of 3 months is also bundled together, allowing you to enjoy PlayStation Plus benefits and multiplayer capabilities.
If you already have a PlayStation 4, you can just buy the standalone standard version of the God of War game at just RM229(Physical Copy) and RM209(Digital Copy), and prices may vary depending on the store you purchase it from. The God of War Digital Deluxe Edition will cost RM249, but comes bundled with some digital goodies such as two-in game equipment and some digital artwork, comic and PS4 theme. If you have some extra money to splurge or is a God of War fan, the Collectors Edition, which costs RM549, might be of interest to you. Aside from a few extra digital goodies mentioned earlier, it comes with a 9-inch Kratos & Atreus statue, and more physical goodies. God of War will be in stores on the 20th of April 2018.
