The last God of War game had teased Kratos taking on world from different mythologies, but Ragnarok still has him and Atreus traversing the realm of the Norse gods. What’s interesting, a new featurette for the game confirms that the Norse arc with Odin ends with this second game.
Join us on our journey behind the scenes of God of War Ragnarök. Throughout this series, we’ll take you across the Nine Realms as we look behind the curtain at the development process across the many disciplines that bring God of War to life.

Set out on an epic and unflinching journey as Kratos and Atreus struggle with holding on and letting go.
Witness the changing dynamic of their relationship as they prepare for war; Atreus hungers for knowledge to help him grasp the prophecy of “Loki”, as Kratos struggles to free himself from the past and be the father his son needs. All the while, the eyes of Asgard watch their every move…
