Prime Video has announced that it has officially ordered a live-action God of War series in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions.
According to Amazon’s Prime Video service, the live-action series is an adaptation of Santa Monica Studio’s sequel series, which takes place in the Norse realm of Midgard after Kratos seeks revenge in ancient Greece.
Like the game, the series follows Kratos as he travels with his son to the highest peak as a final request from his late wife.
