The God of War video game series adapted as a TV series by Prime Video

“God of War: Ragnarök” is available on PS4 and PS5 from November 9, 2022.

< p class="e-p">The God of War video game series will be adapted for the first time on the screen, according to the Amazon Prime Video platform announced on Wednesday.

The console-exclusive bloody saga PlayStation launched in 2013, and reinvented itself with God of War in 2018, then its sequel Ragnarök, released in November, which marked a turning point in the series with a more intimate narrative.

So much so that this opus won six prizes last Thursday – including the best story – at the Game Awards ceremony, the Oscars of video games.

According to the specialized site Deadline, the television series will be broadcast in more than 240 countries and territories on the Prime Video streaming platform. The plot will pick up on the game that relaunched the series in 2018, God of War, as war-worn protagonist Kratos must climb the highest mountain of the nine kingdoms with his son Atreus , to scatter the ashes of his wife Faye.

It is still too early to know if the production will use actors and actresses who lend their voices in the series of games. Christopher Judge, who portrays the character of Kratos in Ragnarök, won Best Performance at The Game Awards.

The series was written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who were at the writing table for Children of Men, and will be directed by Rafe Judkins.< /p>

The adaptation of the God of War saga is another example of the growing interest in video game adaptations, after The Witcher< /em>, renewed for a 3rd season on Netflix, and The Last of Us, which will be launched on January 15 by HBO.
