Sony has released the new feature-length 'Raising Kratos' documentary today, revealing insights into the development of 2018's God of War for PS4. Charting the five year journey and "Herculean" effort it took for the game to get made, the doc shows how Sony Santa Monica went about reinventing the series.

"Facing an unknown future, Santa Monica Studio took a massive risk, fundamentally changing their beloved franchise and re-establishing their rightful place in video game history," the documentary's description states. "More than just a 'making of', this cinematic journey of second chances rooted in family, sacrifice, struggle and doubt follows game director Cory Barlog and those who chase perfection in art and storytelling."

Featuring insights into the defeats, unpredictable outcomes and "down-to-the-wire tension" the development team faced while creating God of War, Raising Kratos is well worth a watch. Clocking in at almost two hours, it's a proper in-depth look into how Sony Santa Monica brought Kratos to life on PlayStation 4. Check it out below.
