History

If you did not play the previous title, we recommend you stop reading unless you want to eat the odd spoiler .

As the name of the game points out, Atreus and Kratos have to face the apocalypse of Norse mythology, as well as their main gods, Freya, Thor or the sons of Odin and other lesser known ones, such as Angrboda, one of the last giants , which will be a real obstacle in your way.

The action will take place around the Nine Kingdoms , where spectacular battles will take place. You will have to explore harrowing scenarios – which on PS5 will look luxurious – to discover what is activating Ragnarök. With Atreus revealed to be Loki due to his mother Faye being a giant, it’s up to the duo to figure out how to solve Fimbulwinter, the winter that precedes the apocalypse. And it will be Thor himself who asks them for help, which will make the story even more morbid.

According to several leaks, the title may be around 60 hours of play, although it will also depend on your ability and if you try to complete it 100%. One of the great novelties will be Kratos’s shield improvement : this will have several types that will be more effective against some rivals or others and can be used as a weapon.

The combat system will be identical and the only thing that will change are the different weapons that we will be able to acquire throughout history, in addition to the fact that Spartan rage will also allow us to summon beasts and access unique battle skills .

At the moment it has not been confirmed that Atreus will be playable, although it surely is. Armed with a bow, arrows, Mjolnir, and Leviathan’s broken axe, he will be a vital ally to Kratos. In fact, it is most likely that we can use it for a longer time and even handle it exclusively for one of the more than 15 final bosses that there will be during God of War: Ragnarok.
