Needless to say, God of War: Ragnarok On the way to unravel many mysteries and provide plenty of action-packed moments. However, there is speculation that the game will unimaginable and decades later God of warMove away from Kratos. Although the Spartan Warriors have kept the franchise well for many years, it may be time for Atrius to take the reins, and Norse mythology indicates that the next God of war The game will do the same.

God of War (2020) may have been set up

Of 2020 God of war The series is considered a reboot, and it eliminates many conventions that have served the franchise well over the years. Instead of the usual fixed camera that gives gamers a detailed view of the battlefield, God of war (2020) chooses an over-the-shoulder approach that brings gamers closer to the action, making each push feel even more effective. He abandons his Greek mythological inspirations alongside Norse mythology. As a result, Kratos finds himself in nine regions where he crosses paths with Norse deities like Mimir and Norse mythological creatures like Jormungandra.


The biggest change of 2020 God of war The son of Kratos and Faye, Atreus is added. Since Atrius is young, he can be arrogant, annoying, and at times annoyingly curious. When he realizes that he is a descendant of the gods, his ego increases a lot. However, Atreus helps Kratos in a very helpless situation. Players have some control over the atrius and they can use it to shoot arrows during battle or strategically activate runic summons that can quickly change the direction of battle. As players progress and upgrade Atreus’ gear, it becomes an inevitable part of every showdown, and Kratos feels powerless without him.


The inclusion of Atreus enabled a creative gameplay mechanic who helped create God of war (2022) One of the highest-rated games of its generation, but for Santa Monica it could also be a way for gamers to easily transition from one hero to another. After spending several games with Kratos, the sudden jump to the new hero may have been annoying and may have upset many gamers. However, by allowing gamers to spend time with both Kratos and Atreus, and allowing gamers to grow by associating with Atreus, those controls may be less resistant to passing from father to child.

God of War: Ragnarok The protagonist will not be the only game to switcheroo. Famous, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Substituted Solid Snake for Ryden, which was a controversial move in 2001 and The Last of Us2 Allows the gamer to play as Eli in the first half of the game before bringing an unexpected twist in the second half of the game. However, by spreading the transition from Cratos to Atreus in two games, God of war The protagonist switcheroo can succeed in becoming a franchise to the most beautiful.

Norse mythology emphasizes Atreus / Loki

So God of War: Ragnarok Borrowing from Norse mythology, there is plenty of room for Atrius, but not much space for Kratos, which may indicate who the game will focus on. In Norse mythology, Ragnarok is a terrifying series of events following Fimbulwinter. Ragnarok ends with a catastrophic natural disaster, the death of several Norse deities, and the flooding of the entire world. After the Flood, the world will be repeated by two humans named Lif and Lifthrasir.


It is predicted that during Ragnarok, there will be a lot of quarrels between the deities. The lying god Loki will fight against the gods with the army of Jotnar (fire demon) at his command. There will be a big fight between Loki and Hemdall and the two will fatally injure each other. Loki is an important Norse mythological figure that needs attention because Atrius has a very strong relationship with him. In 2020 God of war, It is revealed that Atreus’s mother Faye had given him his original name Loki and the same name she had given to Jotnar. This suggests that, while Ragnarok is looking forward to the next game, the upcoming battles are to be fought by Atrius, not Kratos.

Should God of War: Ragnarok Take a lot of inspiration from Norse mythology and put Atrius / Loki at the center of the action, questioning the alignment of Kratos. With Atrius / Loki waging war against the gods, it is unclear where Cratos will position himself. Naturally, one would expect Kratos to side with his child. However, Kratos has learned the hard way, that when it comes to the gods, fate has a way of controlling events in unexpected ways, with boys killing their parents. If Kratos and Atreus appear at opposite ends of the battlefield, it will be a shocking one, though not a precedent, for the turn of events, as this is what Kratos fears most.


God of War: Ragnarok Christopher Judge, who plays Kratos, has been delayed somewhat due to medical issues, although the game is now set to release in 2022. Many questions are waiting to be answered and gamers are itching to see if Odin will do it. The scene, how Kratos will deal with Thor and his mighty hammer, and what role Angraboda will play. It could be that gamers will reveal these answers not by Kratos but by Atreus.

God of War: Ragnarok Will be released in 2022 on PS4 and PS5.
