Kratos Looks Weird Without His Beard
God of War artists have released concept art depicting an early version of Kratos - without his bushy beard.
We're not sure what to think about this, as he looks even more menacing than before, and for some reason we can't get the image of an elderly Agent 47 out of our heads.
Say what you will, but the beard was definitely a welcome addition to the chiselled face of Kratos, even though the high-res images tweeted by art director Raf Grassetti make him look like an angry Santa.
More shots from Kratos' face. A lot of it was added on shaders and textures but this is the base I sculpted before that process. The high res beard was also used to bake the final hair cards later. #kratos #godofwar pic.twitter.com/UxyM49ykXS

Maybe this was intended? So he gave off a more fatherly vibe, while he chops and slices his way through the bodies of your enemies - dad of the year!
The God of War revisit was one of the biggest games of 2018 but it was only released for PS4 as an exclusive, so not everyone has had the chance to experience the epic game or see Kratos' epic beard.
