Game news God of War: Kratos lands on Xbox in a more than dubious game
Despite the power and size of Microsoft, some still manage to break the rules in the face of the authorities. This is the case of War Gods Zeus of Child, a video game released on Xbox which likes to put Kratos at the center of the experience, without any authorization.
Console God of War
The small world of video games may grow and be more and more framed, there are always a few refractories who inexplicably manage to make their mark. This is obviously the case of Dolaka Ltd, a mysterious video game studio that seems to house only one developer in Bromley, South London, England: this one has just put on sale an ersatz of God of War on Xbox, called War Gods Zeus of Child.
Behind this chaotic name – some will even qualify it as a parody, probably rightly – hides an amateur action game… but whose playable character is Kratos, the famous hero of the God of War saga. The iconic God of War is modeled there quite briefly and even appears on the jacket, while the rest of the sheet indicates a PEGI 18 for “Extreme Violence” on the Microsoft Store. The game is sold for £3.39, or €4.05.
Kratos can sleep soundly
It goes without saying that this game is a huge anomaly who knew how to cross the controls and the copyrights, which always turns out to be surprising since we are still talking about Microsoft and not about any amateur platform.
For a little more clarification, this project is sold on the Xbox Creators Collection, a part of the store where developers can sell “lighter” games, without the traditional certification of the Redmond firm and without Success. Nevertheless, taking advantage of the image of Kratos, the indisputable property of the competition since it belongs to Sony, to make money should not please the principal concerned.
Besides, this funny War Gods Zeus of Child wouldn’t be very enjoyablethe Eurogamer site qualifying it as “broken” with geometry thought haphazardly, an absence of music or sound effects or primary animations. In short, not enough to overshadow the real God of War.
Note that the title was released on July 27 (will it be on sale for very long?) and that its creator released, two short days later, a certain Dinasaur Falling Survival which is none other than a low-end copy of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. The title is sold for £3.29 (€3.93) and as an ultimate snub to Epic Games but also to Nintendo, the main character wears Yoshi’s costume, a detail which is obviously important for copyright issues. .
We recall that a short time ago, still on the Xbox Store, a paid copy of Mario had also emerged before it was removed from the digital store. Without surprise.
