Previous installment:

God of War, a reboot of a thrilling adventure franchise starring Kratos, a demigod, was released in 2018. Fans are engaged by the story, and the mythical tales bring the wonder of Norse mythology to life. After taking down Ares, Thanatos, Athena, and Poseidon, Kratos along with his teenage son Atreus, will hunt and kill Ragnarok.

The premise of the game:

The game is based on Norse mythology and is set in Scandinavia. Its protagonists are Kratos and Atreus. In the last series, we saw Finbulwinter drawing close, reflecting light on the prophecy of Ragnarok.

To prevent the dangerous consequences of Ragnarok, Kratos and his son Atreus travel to nine realms. During this attempt, they will also, discover the hidden answers that lie in Atreus’ identity as Loki. They will come across the God of War, Tyr, which will be interesting to watch as he was believed to be dead. Another mind-blowing fact about Tyr is his conflict with the Norse God of Thunder, Thor.

The excitement of this sequel:

Ragnarok is the sequel to 2018’s God of War. They hinted about the looming threats of Ragnarok at the end of the game and left fans to wonder in excitement. Fandom anticipates how protagonists will fight Ragnarok and the bewildering outcomes.

The teaser released in 2019, clearly depicted the shadows of Ragnarok, and while the development of this sequel was already in process, many fans tweeted, ‘Ragnarok is coming’. Although the release date of the game was postponed to the year 2022 because of the pandemic, fans still cannot keep their excitement contained.

In the first trailer for Ragnarok 2021, we can see scenes from previous installments of the game. Also, the trailer gives a glimpse at Kratos and Atreus traversing the nine realms in their dog sled pulled by wolves. Earlier versions of the game only showed six realms, and now we can expect to see all nine realms.

Speaking about the villains in the game, Sony states, “We wanted to remind players that Freya isn’t just a terrifyingly powerful user of Vanir magic, but also that she’s a formidable warrior in her own right. Enraged by Kratos’ evasion of justice by her hand, Freya will turn every weapon at her disposal towards her son’s killer.” The statement is a direct connection to the event where Kratos killed Freya’s son, and now she’ll be on a mission to seek vengeance.
