A screenshot showing a kind of currency in God of War sparked fears the new PlayStation 4 game will have microtransactions. It wouldn't be the only single-player blockbuster with them after all - I'm looking at you Middle-oeuf: Shadow of War and Assassin's Creed: Oranges.

Barlog is currently in Berlin showing Kratos' new fatherly adventure into Norse mythology to press, including Eurogamer, hooray, and we'll have something to share with you soon.
