Update: We’ve yet to hear from Sony Australia, but EB Games has confirmed the availability of the Collector’s Edition here in the country. Details can be found below (with thanks to Jamie!).
Original story: God of War will be available on PS4 this April, Sony has today confirmed.
Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Balrog took to the PlayStation Blog to detail the game’s 20 April release date.
Moreover, three special editions of the game were confirmed, as detailed below:
- Collector’s Edition (below): Includes a 9″ statue, cloth map, steelbook case, the Huldra Bros carvings pack and select digital items ($129.99 USD, $169.99 CAD, $199.95 AUS)

The Collector’s Edition is exclusive to EB Games here in Australia.
