Dark Horse Comics has announced a new comic based on the God of War franchise, titled God of War: Fallen God. It'll a prequel to 2018's God of War, since the events will be set after God of War III and before the latest game. It'll be a mini-series of four instalments, with the first issue releasing on June 24, 2020.

Announced via Comic Book and Dark Horse Comics, the mini-series will be written by Chris Roberson, who also worked on iZombie and God of War, and artist Tony Parker of God of War and This Damned Band in collaboration with colorist Dan Jackson, letterer John Roshell, and cover artist by Dave Rapoza, who designed the cover in the tweet above.

The official description reads that "God of War: Fallen God follows Kratos after conquering Zeus and thwarting Athena. Believing himself to be finally free of his bondage, he sets sail for the desert in an attempt to distance himself from his home and his shame only to find his rage and guilt follow close behind. Kratos rages against the one foe that has proven to be unconquerable—himself. But a war against oneself is unwinnable, and only invites madness."

The first issue will release on June 24th, 2020.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
