A teaser for God of War 4 have leaked, it is filmed off screen and pretty teaser-y. But it could easily be the real deal.

So what do everybody think? True Real or fake?

EDIT: Gah, how do one add a poll?

@Village_Guy: What's up with all those leaks eh?

But yeah I think it's true. Looks pretty real with the whole off-camera and all.

I hope it's fake because God of War 4 is a bad idea.

"coming soon to Xbox 360" Fingers crossed. I know it won't happen but it's a nice dream

Looks fake to me.  It's kind of low-budget looking, which doesn't really describe anything Sony does regarding God of War.  Also, I thought Santa Monica was supposed to start working on something new now, but I suppose Sony could always force them to continue with this franchise--not to mention the fact that Santa Monica has had their name attached to almost everything Sony has put out recently.  
 
For my part, I hope this isn't another God of War, especially if it's continuing Kratos' story.  They should give it a rest and maybe revisit it years from now, hopefully with a new character/story and fresh gameplay.

Hm. Not sure, if it is fake, it's a pretty good one. Only thing that looked really sketchy was the logo at the end. The main question I have to ask, is what would GoW IV even be about? I wouldn't mind seeing it, as I'm pretty fond of the franchise now, but he kind of straight murdered everyone already. How could they base an entire game off the one minor loose end? I'm really curious to see what they do. And if it is real...what the heck was the narration talking about? Some mentioned rumors of online coop play...does that mean that it could be Deimos talking? Hm...

I hope it's not God of War 4 which is weird because I generally like the series. God of War 1 was a great goal oriented story with some pretty good story twists. God of War 2 is just fucking incredible with it's globe spanning story and it is probably on my top 5 games of all time. Chains of Olympus had some nice heartfelt moments. I hated 3 and haven't played Ghost of Sparta yet but I hear good things about it and I have the remastered collection for PS3 so I'll pop it in sometime.

Jaffe's original concept was Kratos landing in the North, engulfed in Norse mythology.

If it's unreleased, shouldn't the ESRB notice be 'content not yet rated'?

#11 Edited by N7 (3658 posts) -

I can tell it's fake from the very first second of the video due to the fact that games don't get ratings for quite a long time. Especially not when they were just announced.
 
EDIT: LOL that was the worst font I've ever seen. They couldn't even get the God Of War font? Jesus.

And in that sense, it would have still gone downhill. If all God of War is is Kratos petulantly murdering every pantheon of gods he comes across because rage, then I don't want to see any more of these games.

#14 Posted by Grissefar (2842 posts) -

Nice sound near the end that is hijacked from the E3 2009 trailer where Kratos jumps off Gaia and rips apart a bird.

Fake.

God of Four/God of W4r.

I have no input on the video, I just needed to get that out of the way.

#18 Posted by Zippedbinders (1030 posts) -

Fake as hell, no character visuals, incorrect font, and amateur voice acting. This is someone dicking around with movie maker and filming it.

God of War IV will exist. This trailer is obviously fake.

FAKE! Compare this to the original trailer for GoW 2 and 3. There is no comparison.

super fake.

#28 Posted by Twinsun (488 posts) -

Yeah, the font and the voiceover among other things make this seems quite fake. Besides, I doubt we'll see a game called God of War 4 anytime soon, but who knows.

#29 Posted by AndrewBeardsley (371 posts) -

The logo at the end is what does it for me. So my vote is fake

#30 Posted by fox01313 (5088 posts) -

Until the platform console or developers come out with something saying here's the next teaser trailer for a game, it's probably fake. There's no telling if this is some fan made thing or just a developer made test idea to give the rest of the studio some ideas on any number of projects (maybe they made it to show off the timing or voice work) but until something's announced this is just a video showing nothing concrete of anything.

#31 Posted by Eidderf (507 posts) -

Looks like an animatic for a possible trailer but even that is a stretch really.

#32 Posted by Sackmanjones (4781 posts) -

Very fake. They would have used the font they usually use. Right?

#33 Posted by AngelN7 (2972 posts) -

That awful voice trying to sound professional and the crappy font kinda gave it away.

#34 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Yeah, the voice acting sounds super iffy to me. Fake.

#35 Posted by RockAction (377 posts) -

Looks real enough i guess, though the font treatment looked odd.

I imagine its going to happen, and if they can figure out a good way to make it happen, i guess it could be fun.

But i think it would need to change in a resi 4 way, i greatly enjoyed GOW2 and GOW3 but playing 3 felt like playing an old game - a good game, but an old game, even though i hadn't played the first two when they came out, i played all three after three came out

I think its going to happen but it'll be interesting to see what they do with it

#38 Posted by Irvandus (2885 posts) -

The wake up, wake up sounds way too amateur for this to be real.

#39 Posted by sirdesmond (1256 posts) -

Definetly fake. It was just filmed off-screen like that to make it seem real. A teaser for GoW4 would have way more than just a little voiceover and concept art. Plus, that logo at the end was not a thing that would ever happen (looked really bad). Oh yea, and the rating thing at the beginning as others have mentioned.

#40 Posted by JasonR86 (9762 posts) -

It looks real. That sucks though. That studio needs to do something different.

#41 Posted by Patman99 (1619 posts) -

Fake, because the real title is "God of Four"

Don't forget the upcoming PS3 version of Halo 4.

#46 Posted by Marz (5666 posts) -

God of War 4 needs to be set in a different mythology.. 
 
Norse mythology, new protagonist, Ragnarok the setting....   Fighting big wolf Fenrir and World Serpent... yeah ...that's what i want.

@msavo: I don't really understand how someone could HATE God of War III. Being disappointed by aspects of it, maybe, but hatred seems a bit strong for such a massive game. I dunno. I'm just talkin' outta my ass.

#48 Edited by NTM (7516 posts) -

Well, I hope that there's a sequel. I really disliked God of War 3's story. I had my mind made up of how I'd love it to end back when I had played the original in 05. I was a little less interested in the God of War series by the time the third came out, but I still had the same thought, though didn't care to have any one expectation at the time, in the end though, it just didn't end how I would have liked it to. In the first God of War, Krato's seemed like a guy who killed, but overall had a sympathetic side to him and felt a bit guilty for the things he had done in his past, and aside from the whole sacrificing thing he had done at Pandora's Temple in the first, I liked him a lot as a character.

In two, he just seemed more (dare I say it) bad-ass, without necessarily fleshing his character out to one side or the other, but in the third, he just goes on a total killing streak and it just felt very disjointed. His story and goal seems to have shifted in a huge way, though not in a very understandable way, from the first to the third. It should have ended in a more... relatable way. I was hoping that in the end it'd take a more Gladiator-esque ending, where if he died, it'd be a somewhat emotional ending where he meets his family in Elysium. I think David Jaffe's ending was quite good from what I had heard. Oh, and about this "trailer", it looks extremely fake, but I guess in time, we'll have to see.

...while Final Fantasy is practically the same story of VII told over and again and again and again.  I sense a double standard.
