God of War developer Santa Monica is going through a week of celebrations to commemorate the game's one-year anniversary following its remarkable success and it has teased more free stuff for fans. It already gifted PlayStation 4 owners - even those who do not own the game - the opportunity to download a free dynamic theme, as well as free avatars.
With April 20th, God of War's 2018 release date, just a few days away, the game's director, Cory Barlog, has taken it upon himself to let fans know that there's likely more in the works but has also made sure to state that DLC shouldn't be expected, as it isn't in the plans.
Barlog retweeted with a reply after the Push Square Twitter account announced that Santa Monica would be giving away freebies to PS4 users, claiming: "That's not all." He then returned to Twitter to clarify after realizing that he probably lead fans to believe that DLC could be on the way.
He tweeted: "Just so no one gets the wrong idea - there is no DLC coming for the game. Sorry."
A fan joked that both of Cory's tweets made for an emotional rollercoaster, to which the director responded: "Microdrama, that's how I roll."
It appears that there are still a few things in store as April 20 approaches - and, with good reason, considering that God of War turned out to be the best game of 2018, something given credence by the 190 Game of the Year awards it attracted.
While main character Kratos had already been a fan favorite since the first God of War title launched in 2005, seeing the Spartan warrior reinvent himself in a role as a father took things to a whole new level. The addition of his young, inquisitive son Atreus as a useful sidekick also helped the game score big time.

For now, we know that DLC is off the table so Cory's tweet is still shrouded in mystery. However, there have been suggestions that a sequel depicting Ragnarok could be in the pipeline as the newly-released theme is said to be a teaser in itself.
The boat in which Kratos and Atreus are sitting in displays runes that are said to translate to “Ragnarok is coming.” One can only hope.
