This 'God Of War' PS5 Is The Most Extra Thing I've Ever Seen In My Life

This God Of War themed custom case for the PlayStation 5 is simultaneously one of the most OTT and the most incredible tributes to the game that I've ever seen.

Santa Monica Studio is as busy as a beaver working on God of War Ragnarök and there's a lot riding on this one. Of course, the 2018 game had luminous praise heaped and heaped upon its story, art direction, and forceful gameplay, but it's a high bar to clear for the successor. "The mystery of Loki’s role in the upcoming conflict is something that Atreus cannot let go of," said the studio. "He wants to keep his family safe, but Atreus also doesn’t want to stand by and do nothing while conflict consumes the Nine Realms." Oh, yes, all nine Realms will be open for business, including Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard and boasting "a more diverse, beautiful, and mysterious variety of locations than in any other God of War game."

Here's a guessing game - how many times does Kratos call Atreus "boy" across the entirety of the story of God of War?

New characters like Tyr, Thor and Angrboda will be encountered in Ragnarök and it's possible that, at the end of Kratos' Norse saga, we will go toe to toe with Odin himself. Given the undeniable gravitas of the game, there is one way to celebrate Kratos and Atreus' journey and what lies beyond the Norse realms.

InovaryArtsBrasil is a team of two passionate gamers who sell limited edition custom shells for the PlayStation 5 as well as other accessories for the console. An enormous level of effort goes into the creation of these cases and the detail is absolutely showstopping. The God Of War "Gamer Shield" case replicates aged timber with gold decals on the panels, with Kratos' shield and Leviathan axe in the centre of one and Freya's handprint on the other. This dedication to the world of Midgard shows up on the stand, which simulates a wood and iron stand and is embellished with the letter omega from the Greek alphabet. Lastly, a charm of Mimir can chill out on a hook. That's certainly the most unique element of this stunning case.

Not quite your speed? There's a Red Dead Redemption one and a Mortal Kombat one made with an equal level of love for their respective fictional worlds. And it's worth mentioning that InovaryArtsBrasil are selling the components, not an entire PlayStation 5, so you'll be assembling these together on your own. If you are tempted by the product, remember that these are limited edition kits so it's best to swiftly swoop in before stocks disappear
