The gameplay trailer for God of War Ragnarok shown at the PlayStation Showcase showed not only Kratos and Atreus in action but also a rich cast of new characters including Tyr (the Norse god of war), Thor (son of Odin) and Angrboda.
But who are these characters actually? We have decided to collect all the information in a new video to deepen the lore of Thor, Tyr and Angrboda and the mythology of the Sony Santa Monica game, thus tracing a complete profile of the new characters we will meet in the course of the new adventure of Kratos and Atreus .
As known Thor, Tyr and Angrboda they are prominent deities in Norse mythology, characters only mentioned in the 2018 God of War and now ready to claim a front row seat in God of War Ragnarok. We do not want to spoil the surprise and we leave you to watch the video, referring you to our special on the mythology of God of War Ragnarok.
In recent days there have been many controversies for the looks of Thor and Angrboda, controversies that have prompted Santa Monica Studios to intervene to clarify the situation, the team has specified that this is a personal interpretation of mythology and not a faithful representation of Norse history . God of War Ragnarok is expected in 2022 su PlayStation 5 e PlayStation 4.
