God Of War Being Turned Into A Novel By Cory Barlog’s Father


God of War is easily one of the best games of 2018, with people praising the game's portrayal of a father-son relationship between Kratos and Atreus. Now a novelization of that story isn't anything unexpected, but the choice of J.M. Barlog, God of War director Cory Barlog's father, feels appropriate.

The senior Barlog is a fairly well-known author of young adult fiction, having written a number of fantasy and mystery books in his career. 

"A Chicago native, I served in the Air Force during Vietnam," he writes. "That was when the writing bug took me. I started (with no success) writing short stories about things that interested me. Before long I was expanding into novels and exploring many different facets of life. I came to realize that stories were all around. All I had to do was be observant and let my imagination go where it wanted."
God of War is available now on PlayStation 4.
