Just tell me when to shoot. Making sure that Atreus wasn’t a
pain in your ass was a big part of this game. Atreus needed to have some
sort of ability or something he brought to the table that
was different from Kratos. His ability to
understand the language, right? In our world, the writing of the
runes and the speaking of the runes are like the ignition
for magic. Atreus’ ability to understand
this stuff allows him to have magical abilities
that Kratos can’t have. The giants used to gather here
to trade with the gods a long time ago. The simplicity of the
controls was imperative. Should I fire? Wait for my mark. We did not want to be given
commands or have complex orders or anything like that. He is able to autonomously
divide the battlefield just a little bit. So he’s able to take attention,
if you will — “agro” in some
games it’s called — away from enemies. So if you have a
large pack of enemies, firing the arrows will
get their attention. We had to design, like, a suite
of moves for him that he could do that could help; melee with the bow and trip
enemies and keep them at bay. You know, he’s a little guy, so
he can jump on an enemy and grab them from time to time. We didn’t want people
micromanaging the son. Again, we didn’t want people
to think of him as any kind of hindrance, anything they
really had to worry about. You can use him to
your heart’s content, whatever you would like to do. If you don’t do anything,
he’ll still do a lot of things. There are certain circumstances
that there are enemies that say, “I’m going to target him.” But if he gets into trouble, he’s able to get himself out of
trouble most of the time. When you’re in a
fight with Atreus, it’s like you
definitely feel his presence. He feels like he’s there
with you every step of the way. We wanted to make sure that he
always felt like somebody that was helping Kratos
and benefiting you, and you’d never want
to be without him.

    I'll be interested in seeing whether Calliope and Lysandra come up in terms of the story. Both Chains of Olympus and GoW3 really turned on themes of fatherhood, and I think the compare and contrast with Atreus could be quite effective.

    Atreus ? I hope he doesn't talk the entire time…or at least hope that there is a way to make him talk less. I don't need the voice of a young kid telling me all the time "watch out, to your left, behind you etc.." Although yes that's probably what a real kid with his real father might do in a situation like this. But this is a game not real life and we all know how to play a game and that sometimes enemy's come from behind you etc…. fingers crossed.

    By the way, just because SONY Santa Monica where inspired by the last of us…doesn't mean that they can do emotional character development like what Naughty Dog can do. We will see April 20,2018

    By the way #2 just because someone doesn't have the same opinion as you regarding Atreus doesn't make it "hate" it's just a different opinion. The game isn't out yet so I can't know for sure ..but looking at these videos I am concerned that this kids will be running his mouth 24/7. Hope to be proven wrong.
