Big God of war The sequel is one of the most anticipated video games of the year, and now you can play it on Xbox. Yes that is correct, baby war god zeusWhich stars Sony’s video game character Kratos and a multitude of similar and generic monster baddies, is currently available on the Xbox Store for just $4.09.
Oh, you thought I was talking about a different game? No, baby war god zeus Is Definitely An accepted and legitimate entry in one of Sony’s most valuable franchises ever sold on a competing console platform.
I promise you’ll want to play it just based on the description of the game:
War Gods Child of Zeus is a great war game. Destroy all enemies and creatures with challenge zeus war gods [sic], Kill them all with your gun. Launch attacks with different combos. Reach the highest monster without killing the dead. Feel the power of the God who warns.
And if that doesn’t sell you on it, check out this gameplay video from YouTube channel Red Bandana Gaming:
OK, I’ll stop joking now. baby war god zeus clearly have some God of war The ripoff somehow slipped through the cracks and was published on the Xbox Store. I know Sony is open about releasing more games on mobile and PC, but I can’t imagine it has any plans to bring one. God of war Games for Xbox. And while Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has said that God of War RagnarokReal God of war The sequel is the game he wants to playI don’t think he will even accept this knockoff game.
In case you don’t know the poorly written description and extremely rough video, as seen in eurogamer, Child’s war god Zeus The developer is a company named Dolka Limited which has snuck another Tremendous ripoff on Xbox Store called: A Fall Guys Lookalike Dinosaur Falling Survival (yes, “dinosaur”).

Microsoft’s strict certification processes generally don’t allow knockoffs to arrive in stores (as we sometimes see on mobile app stores), but eurogamer speculates that Dolca’s titles may be sold through the Xbox Creators Program, which lets Xbox developers bypass the specific processes required to publish games. “If your game integrates Xbox services and complies with our Standard Store policies, you are ready to publish,” Microsoft says on the Xbox Creators Program website.
However, you don’t have to read far to find an example of how both of Dolka’s games would violate those standard store policies. There are characters in both titles that are clearly Kratos and A. are ripoffs of fall friends Bean, and while I’m certainly not a lawyer, this appears to violate Section 10.1.1: “Your Product must not use any names, images or any other metadata that is similar to other Products, unless that the product may not even be published by you.”
We’ve asked Microsoft what’s happening here and whether the games will remain for sale. In the meantime, I’m going to watch the trailer for real God of war Sequel again.
