God of War Ragnarök description on PlayStation Store
Recently, the PlayStation Store description of God of War Ragnarök was recently updated offering us the best look at the upcoming sequel’s plot. While brief, this actually goes beyond the even briefer announcement trailer that was released recently.
“Fimbulwinter is well underway,” that the description requires. “Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces gets themselves prepared for a prophesied battle that would bring the world to an end.
“Along the way, they would explore amazing mythical Landscapes, and face of some fearsome enemies in the form of Norse Gods and Monsters. The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus are required to choose between their own safety and that of the realms.”
God of War Ragnarök Narrative
Elsewhere, the description suggests that Ragnarök would pick up the main narrative thread that was left hanging in the first. We would be assisting Atreus as he “seeks Knowledge to aid him better understand the prophecy of ‘Loki’ and establish his role in Ragnarök”.
It seems like we would be seeing much of the father-son bonding time, too, as “Kratos Must decide whether he would be chained by the fear of having to repeat his mistakes or break free of his past to be the father that his son Atreus needs”.
It seems like Ragnarök would be giving us something spectacular. God of war only includes six of the nine Norse realms, and a handful of those are minor challenge areas rather than fully explorable worlds.
Midgard, which happens to be the mortal realm, serves as the game’s major explorable region. Alfheim, the home of the light and dark elves is the second Zone that you enter. Muspelheim, the realm of fire, entails a series of arena challenges; while Niflheim includes the Mis Echoes labyrinth. Also, you would promptly escape from Helheim, the Norse afterlife for those who die dishonorably; and visit Jotunheim in the final moment of the game.
It looks as if God of War Ragnarök would complete the set. The final three realms include Asgard, Vanaheim, and Svartalfheim. Chief among those is Asgard – the home of the Aesir gods and the seat of power in Norse Mythology. Asgard is simply the largest and central realm of them all, where the most popular Aesir Gods live.
It is divided into several regions of its own. Valhalla is ruled over by Odin, so we might actually end up entering the golden hall. Bilskirnir, Meanwhile, serves as the seat of Thor, who has been confirmed would be appearing in the game.
Vanaheim also is important in the game. It is the homeland of the Vanir gods, a Sorcerous pack of deities who once fought against the Aesir. Freya who happens to be Ragnarök’s chief antagonist is one of them. According to God of War’s Lore, she was cursed by Odin to prevent her from leaving Midgard, but we actually might spend a fair amount of time in Vanaheim given it’s importance in the Aesir-Vanir conflict.
Finally, Svartalfheim happens to be the homeland of the dwarves. Although it got only a little mention in the first game, Brok and Sindri – the two dwarven blacksmiths who help you – would be returning in this next installment of the series. Maybe they would let us in.
Still, there are tons of questions, including how many of these realms we would get to see. It is likely that we would explore a new area of Midgard, and maybe even return to Kratos’ Woodland Home.
