One of the many armor sets that I had the pleasure of working on for God of War Ragnarok.
This was a fun challenge, as we wanted to bring back the Ares armor that we have seen in the past games, but this time trying to get closer to the first version.
This is a New Game Plus exclusive, so it was also a chance to give our most hardcore players something to enjoy.
The base armor that we used as a starting point was done by the awesome Eric Valdes (which is also our Lead).
My task was to create a design that would fit our current base model, make a new hipoly and create the textures from scratch.
The in-game polish was done by the great Amanda Irani.
