God of War Stone Mason Edition: Fittingly DivineApril 23, 2018
Celebrating the long-awaited and epic return of Kratos is the suitably majestic God of War Stone Mason Edition. The lavish premium set is brimming with a wealth of both digital and physical extras, which make it a must-have for longtime devotees of Sony’s cornerstone PlayStation exclusives and a compelling splurge for new fans of the series.
In the tradition of other “AAA” PlayStation exclusives, including Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Last Guardian, and Horizon: Zero Dawn, the God of War Stone Mason Edition includes a range of downloadable bonuses. The high-end bundle comes with items for use in game including the Death’s Vow armor set, and Defender of the Chosen and Exile’s Guardian shields. They accompany the Buckler of the Forge, Dökkenshieldr, and Shining Elven Soul shields which are granted to buyers who pre-ordered the game.
When not immersed in the game, fans who pick up the God of War Stone Mason Edition get to enjoy other digital extras including a dynamic theme and a digital comic (God of War Digital Comic #0) and mini artbook by Dark Horse Comics.
Adding to the extras, the God of War Stone Mason Edition comes with a matching bounty of physical loot, including a copy of the game on Blu-ray, a limited edition Steelbook metal disc case, replica Stone Mason’s ring, Mimir’s Head talking keychain, 2-inch horse and troll carvings, a set of 2-inch Huldra Brothers carvings, an exclusive lithograph, God of War decal, and cloth map of the game world. Rounding out the list of extras is the Stone Mason Edition’s clear centerpiece, the 9-inch statue of the game’s protagonists, Kratos and Atreus. Designed and manufactured by the famed collectibles manufacturer, Gentle Giant Limited, the piece features the game’s intrepid heroes cooperatively dispatching a couple of hapless foes. It’s a shelf-worthy showpiece and a fitting tribute to a game that represents one of this console generation’s most impressive technical and creative achievements. While it’s pricier than other versions, the God of War Stone Mason Edition is a worthy addition to the collection of any gaming enthusiast and a justifiable indulgence for new and longtime fans of the franchise.
The God of War Stone Mason Edition released alongside the standard, Collector’s Edition, Limited Edition Console Bundle and digital versions of game on April 20, 2018 at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $149.99 USD.
