Sony Santa Monica concept artist Samuel Matthews recently hinted at the potential that players could take over the reins of Atreus to varying degrees, similar to how you controlled Ellie in The Last of Us Part I and Part II.
From the @godofwarpodcast Instagram page a short video shows him hinting at these playable moments and what they could do with them.
Matthews mentioned you could branch off the two characters allowing for different stories and gameplay. We know that Atreus was a ranged character and Kratos is the melee brute. Perhaps a large boss fight that involves more tactical preparation?
What do you think will; happen, will they allow for playable Atreus sections or not?
