Sony projected a scene from God of War on a basketball court this weekend

If you were in the stands for this weekend’s Warriors-Spurs game, you got to see a different kind of warrior during halftime. While the players were cooling off between quarters, Sony projected a scene “inspired by” God of War onto the court.

According to the PlayStation Blog, the scene was displayed using cutting-edge “Projection Mapping” technology, and it showed Kratos and Atreus doing battle with Draugr, Helwalkers, and an Ogre:

This projection-mapping magic uses ultra-bright video projectors together with powerful media server engines to paint vivid imagery complete with sense of motion and depth directly onto large surfaces. It could be a building, a wall around Asgard, a World Serpent…or in this case, the basketball court during half time. Because when you think of Norse myth, you think — basketball. Of course!

God of War will be available exclusively for the PS4 on April 20, and you can view Sony’s rather unique halftime show from this weekend in the video embedded above.
