Recently, it was announced in style that a television series of god of war has been officially greenlit by Prime Video, with Amazon, Sony Pictures, and PlayStation Productions co-producing an adaptation of the 2018 action-adventure game. Given the game’s popularity and widespread success, it goes without saying that there’s a lot of excitement surrounding it. , which, of course, goes hand in hand with a large number of questions.
One of those questions is how is the TV show going to approach the game in terms of how closely it sticks to it and what liberties it takes in the changes and additions it makes? Specific details aren’t abundant at the moment, of course, but according to Amazon Studios head of television Vernon Sanders, while the TV series will be welcoming to those who have never played the game, it will also be “incredibly faithful to the source material.” ”.
Speaking in an interview for the media ColliderSanders said:
“At the center of it all is this story of fathers, sons and families, set against this giant epic landscape. So what Rafe [Judkins] (showrunner) and Mark [Fergus] and Hawk [Ostby] They (writers) have come up with for the first season, and for the series, I think, it’s incredibly faithful to the source material, and also compelling on its own. If you’ve never played the game, you’ll fall in love with the show and feel very invited. So we think it’s going to be huge.”
While god of war is in the early stages of production, Sony has another major adaptation on the horizon, with the series The Last of Us on HBO that will premiere on January 15.
