Sony has finally released a two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary called Raising Kratos focused on the five-year development process of God of War. You can watch it below.
Sony states that the documentary was made with 400 hours of behind-the-scenes footage, from the development floor at Santa Monica Studio, to the performance capture stage, to the game’s public debut at E3 2016, and even further.
“The ultimate goal was to go beyond a ‘making of’ piece and dig deeper into the experiences of those who spend relentless time and effort into making something great. All creative endeavors, especially those of this magnitude, require an incredible amount of dedication and focus that constantly toe the fine line that separates both success and failure. The hope is that once people see the experience of Santa Monica Studio unfold on the screen, they will recognize the undying passion for their work and the incredible respect they have for their craft,” said Scott Rohde explained.
The is led by Cory Barlog and the Santa Monica development team discussing the decisions behind God of War, and the reasons for its success.
