God of War: Ragnarok is a few months away, but other than a few trailers, we haven’t learned much about Kratos and Arteus’ upcoming father-son excursion. Two of the game’s key combat designers, Mihir Sheth and Denny Yeh, have broken their silence and taken a look at the ex-Spartan’s new combat abilities.

Speaking to Game Informer, Sheth and Yeh detailed some of Kratos’ new combat techniques, including the ability to infuse both the Leviathan Ax and Chaos Blades with enhanced elemental traits depending on the weapon – Ice for the ax and Fire for the blades. This activates new weapon signature moves – Frostwake for the Axe and Whiplash for the Blades – which deal massive damage to opponents.
