A copy of God of War that was available on the Xbox Store has been removed.
As first reported earlier this week, War Gods Zeus of Child (yes, that’s his real name) has appeared on the Xbox Store for PC and Xbox gamers alike. It featured a legally indistinguishable Kratos attacking an endless stream of enemies in a basic arena.
There was absolutely no challenge for War Gods Zeus of Child. The game simply tasked you with hacking and dicing a million boring enemies, either until you give up and quit the game, or until Kratos meets his eventual demise at the hands of hundreds of monsters.
eurogamer (opens in a new tab) now reporting that the scam has been officially removed from the Xbox Store. It appears to have been completely removed from the store today, August 4, and when contacted about the game and its removal, Microsoft declined to comment.
God of War isn’t even the only game developer Dolaka Ltd. has ripped off. The studio also released a game called Dinasaur Falling Survival which, despite the obscure title (it’s really Dinasaur, not Dinosaur), blatantly ripped off Mediatonic’s hit Fall Guys, tasking players with racing through a series of obstacles with wacky physics. There’s even a clone of Mario called Classic Platformer Mariones, and what looks like a Devil May Cry or Superhot stunt double called Shooter Garenattacks.
You can play the very real Fall Guys right now on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch, and the very real God of War Ragnarok will release later this year on November 9 for PS4 and PS5 consoles.
