Fascination with the mythology of Greece

An important component of the God of warGame series consists in the type of storytelling. The series has been based on real mythology since the first title and has since incorporated various stories of the gods into the plot.

Greek mythology in particular provides a seemingly endless source of great stories as it tells of timeless subjects such as courage, love, vengeance and death. Numerous films including epic titles like 300 and  war of Gods, therefore like to act in ancient Greece.

The former can be streamed on platforms such as Netflix, for example. Also among the games is God of War Not alone with its setting, because successful games like apotheon or the popular war MMO Sparta: War of Empires, dealing with the historical struggle of Sparta also take place in the said country. The latter can be done on a special Plarium Play platform for gamers, using a pc game launcher can be easily installed and played for free. Different genres can be perfectly combined with the ancient mythology and enable strong stories and true heroes.

But not only ancient Greece has a lot going for it, like the newest part of God of War skillfully proves. After Kratos has defeated all the Greek gods, he has to look for a new challenge. And so it ends up in the middle of Nordic mythology.
