The God Of War TV Series Will Adapt The 2018 Game – And That’s A Weird Choice

To understand why starting in the middle doesn’t work here, it’s important to understand the beginning. The first “God of War” game released in 2005, nearly two decades ago, where it wasted no time introducing the world to Kratos (Terrance “T.C.” Carson in all but the most recent two installments), a bloodthirsty Spartan captain and demigod son of Zeus who made a fateful deal with Ares, the Greek God of War. In exchange for his servitude, the deal permitted Kratos and his soldiers to survive certain death, even bestowing the Spartan leader with his signature weapons, the fiery twin Blades of Chaos. But Ares tricked Kratos into slaughtering his wife and daughter, an act which the arrogant god believed would free his new servant from earthly ties. To add insult to injury, Kratos was cursed to bear the ashes of his dead family permanently upon his skin … yeah, he’s not just a chalky dude, that’s his family. On his skin. Forever. 

It would be fair to say that Kratos didn’t handle his new master’s betrayal particularly well. Bursting with vindictive rage and unbridled self loathing, Kratos spends subsequent games culling the Greek pantheon with brutal efficiency. Ares, Poseidon, Athena, Persephone, Hephaestus, Hera, Hades, even Zeus, all fell to Kratos’ rage. Demigods, like Perseus and Theseus, and Titans, like Gaia and Helios, met their match in Kratos, as well. Some Olympians, like Artemis and Apollo, survived by steering clear of the Ghost of Sparta (a name he earned in no small part thanks to his ash-infused skin). Aphrodite chose a, uh, different approach, and survived by seducing him. 

The “God of War” series very much earned its Mature ESRB rating, just as Kratos very much earned Ares’ old title.
