Kratos and Atreus are in for a winter warzone.
Back in 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment released the long-awaited fourth entry in their flagship God of War video game series. This game was a departure from the previous games, showing the infamous Spartan warrior-turned war god Kratos settling down and starting a family in the realms of Norse mythology, going on a journey with his young son Atreus. The game proved successful, thanks in no small part to the relationship between Kratos and Atreus, and now, several years later, we’ll find out where the story is heading next.
The official PlayStation Store page for the game’s sequel, God of War: Ragnarok, was updated this week with a lengthier synopsis, giving us an idea of what to expect in the new game.
“From Santa Monica Studio comes the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018),” the store page reads. “Fimbulwinter is well underway. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.”
The plot synopsis for God of War: Ragnarok confirms Kratos and Atreus will explore all nine realms, and part of the game will take place during Fimbulwinter, which directly precedes the events of Ragnarok in Norse mythology. https://t.co/pq09aoGAF7 pic.twitter.com/5vE9EAYTzY
