|Overview:||Everything, everywhere changes. Change is an essential part of life. In creative development change is often the explosive spark that transforms good enough into truly memorable. Several years ago, Santa Monica Studio began the journey of creating a new 'God of War'. The Santa Monica Studio team recognized a special honor and responsibility to create a different and better and truly more memorable experience than before. Cory Barlog realized early on that changes had to be made to every aspect of the game. The road to creating a new 'God of War' was a seemingly endless climb up an impossibly enormous mountain, filled with countless gut-wrenching failures and joyfully sweet successes.|
