God of War gets an ass-kicking Stone Mason Edition


Attach the Stone of Triumph

While there is no confirmed release date just yet, this year will see the return of the beast-punching, head-ripping Kratos, who will return, along with his impressionable young son, to lay waste to mythological creatures of legend in Sony’s God of War.

For die-hard fans, a Limited Edition of the new PS4 title is on the way. The “Stone Mason Edition” will include a steelbook edition of the game itself, complete with a digital art book, comic and a dynamic PS4 theme, as well as some exclusive in-game shield and an XP boost. Also included in the set is a cloth map, a dramatic lithograph, a talking keychain, a finger ring and a selection of small carvings.

The centrepiece of the set is a nine-inch statue of Kratos and Atreus engaged in the time-honoured, father-and-son tradition of slaughtering demons. The Stone Mason Edition will set you back around $150, which is pretty hefty, but at least there’s some neat gear on offer. There’s been no confirmation thus far as to whether the set will be made available outside of the U.S.

God of War is yet to receive a specific release date, but if recent murmurs are to be believed, it is expected to launch on PS4 around Spring/Summer of this year.
