Sony kicked off their E3 press conference earlier this morning with an extended look at God of War. Fans were treated to an almost 10-minute long gameplay demo that eased them into a very different kind of God of War experience.

For starters Kratos is a dad now. He spends the entire gameplay demo trying to teach his son how to hunt, which would probably go better if they weren’t constantly interrupted by weird undead creatures and, at one point, a massive troll.

Given the lack of a number after the title, it seems that God of War is a reboot, with Kratos being slightly less cruel and more of a stern father type. Plus he has a beard now.
