With just a few weeks to go until 'The Last of Us' TV adaptation debuts, another PlayStation titan is getting the live-action treatment.

'God of War', which just smashed records with its latest instalment, is following the trend of Sony's other major IP and getting a live-action adaptation on Amazon Prime Video.

While Kratos has been knocking around since his PS2 debut in 2005's 'God of War', this adaptation will focus on the more recent reboot/sequel to the series, also titled 'God of War', and the recently released 'God of War Ragnarok' which follows the self-exiled Greek god as he tries to settle into non-god life in the Norse realm of Midgard. Obviously, hijinks ensue (to put it very, very mildly).

"'God of War' is a compelling, character-driven franchise that we believe will captivate our global customers as much with its expansive and immersive worlds as its rich storytelling," Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, said. "We are honored to share in the adventure of exploring the God of War mythology in such a momentous way with Sony Pictures Television, PlayStation Productions, and Santa Monica Studio."

Many of the team involved in the game will be involved in the show, while 'Iron Man' and 'Children of Men' writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby will be writing and executive producing.

The expectations on the show will be high considering the franchise's blockbuster success, huge fanbase and recent Game Awards wins, but all eyes will be on how Amazon handles its adaptation of 'Fallout', and how fans react to 'The Last of Us' in January.

One thing we know for sure is that 'God of War' will be brutal.
