If you don't mind watching a troll get hacked to bits, here's a few minutes of tasty gameplay. From God of War, that is.
The footage was released on PlayStation's YouTube channel earlier over the long weekend, and starts off with a fight agaginst a giant troll called Brenna Daudi. Each of the trolls has a name and backstory of its own, although Daudi uses a lot of lava-esque abilities.
The rest of the video shows other bits you'll encounter in the God of War reboot: light puzzle elements, one button presses to interact with objects and chests, instead of having to mash the button.

Kratos rests his palm on the trunk of a tall birch tree, its bark marked with a bright golden handprint. He stands in quiet, melancholy contemplation. No longer a virile young warrior overflowing with destructive fire, fine crow’s feet mark his face, his strength now staid. His enemies are long defeated and the surrounding forest lies cold and still, but the weight of his bloody past has settled on his shoulders. He lifts the Leviathan axe and hacks into the trunk, a mighty weapon made mundane.
