God of War Story Review

2018’s God of War follows the events of the original God of War trilogy and brings our hero Kratos from the world of Greek mythology to Northern Europe. The game begins with Kratos and his son Atreus preparing for the funeral of Kratos’ second wife and Atreus’ mother, Fay.

After an unforgettable battle with a stranger (later revealed to be the Norse god of light, Baldur), Kratos and Atreus embark on a journey to fulfill Faye’s ultimate wish: to get her ashes from the kingdoms Sprinkle on the highest mountain. The journey of the two begins.

Kratos and Atreus encounter (and often fight) the mythical creatures and gods of Norse mythology, and have been exploring their own interpersonal drama—namely, the shortcomings of Kratos as a father and the hidden aspects of him as a demigod. Identity, he chose to hide in an attempt to hide from the atrocities he committed during previous God of War games to move on.

Helping Kratos and Atreus on their quest is Freya, with whom we find herself a goddess and mother to Baldur, with whom we have a complicated relationship (to put it mildly). Kratos intervenes in their family quarrel, killing Balder against her will to save Freya. As such, she vowed to “pour all pain, all imaginable violations” onto Kratos, making her one of the two main antagonists in Ragnarok.

Kratos revealed his past to Atreus, after which they ascended the mountain and completed their mission by scattering Frey’s ashes. At the top of the mountain, they also find that the Jotnar giant has foreseen their entire journey, while Kratos glimpses a mural of what might happen in the future: a dying Kratos caught by Atreus, a snake out of the latter’s mouth.

In the final reveal, we learned that Atreus was actually Loki, the deceitful god. The post-credits sequence then sets Ragnarok’s other main antagonist: Thor.

This game is definitely worth playing on your own because there are many More twists, turns and memorable character introductions, but for brevity we stick to the most important events. A more in-depth recap of the story can be found in the video below.

God of War Ragnarok gameplay

Like 2018’s God of War, Ragnarok will have its ups and downs between “big bosses,” skirmishes, and quiet moments between Kratos and Atreus. While the rhythm is familiar, the combat options for these moments have expanded, as evidenced by the Ragnarok gameplay trailer, which showcases Kratos’ new attack abilities and Atreus’ new rune summoning.

as listed in Ragnarok PS store On the page, Kratos will have access to his Leviathan Axe, Chaos Blade, and Guardian Shield “as well as a host of new abilities.” Among these new abilities, Kratos uses the Chaos Blade to maintain verticality: the blade can be used as a grappling hook for climbing heights (á la Halo Infinite) and close the gap between enemies (á la Mortal Kombat). look by youself:

Kratos will also have many new Nordic creatures to use these abilities. A new enemy we saw in the gameplay trailer is a centaur-like creature called The Stalker (see below). We also saw the wolf giant Fenrir in the most recent CG trailer, though time will tell if he’s friend or foe.

The last traversal worth mentioning is the introduction of Spikey and Swanain the aforementioned gameplay trailer, the wolves are seen pulling Kratos and Atreus across the frozen Nine Lakes.

Latest Ragnarok News

The most notable Ragnarok news we didn’t cover above is change of directors: God of War 2018 director Cory Barlog has handed the reins to series veteran Eric Williams, credited with the previous game for designers. Barlog said Williams played a key role in leading the series in a new direction, calling him the game’s “sounding board and boundary limit test.”

Another change in the sequel is a greater commitment to accessibility: Santa Monica Studio has promised more than 60 Accessibility options in Ragnarokincluding full controller customization, automatic movement (sprinting, jumping, etc.), navigation assist buttons, and improved subtitle options.

Barlog also confirmed that Ragnarok will mark The end of the series “Nordic Legends”. It’s a little surprising considering the success of the first game, but for Barlog it’s just a matter of not stretching the story too long in a trilogy: “We’re talking about a single story that spans almost 15 years. The story, and I think it’s too much. I think we’re asking too much, and it’s taking so long to say that this story is actually done…it feels too long.”

We recently learned that Dark Horse will release a Ares Ragnarok Art Book The game date is November 9th. The book contains hundreds of pages of concept art, developer reviews, and other behind-the-scenes content.
