New games in the God of War series are closely tied to Norse mythology and Ragnarok is no exception. The latest trailer for the game, which was shown as part of the State of Play, not only reveals the plot details of the new part, but contains many references. In the video, the players found a lot of interesting references that should please fans of the myths about the gods of Asgard.
According to the assumptions from users who carefully analyzed the trailer, the developers from the Santa Monica studio in God of War: Ragnarok are really going to show the death of the gods and the whole world from Scandinavian legends. The plot of the game will be closely connected with Ragnarok and no deviations from the canonical myth should be expected. The plot video clearly demonstrates that the main characters will become direct participants in the events that embodied the prophecy about the end of the world. Kratos and Atreya enlist the support of Tyr and turn to the goddess of the seas – Ran.
According to one fan theory, the mysterious voice in the trailer belongs to Odin himself. When watching the video, it may seem that he is referring to Kratos, but in fact it is not. The supreme god turns to Atreus – Loki. One calls him “a monster that kills for no reason.” It is assumed that this phrase refers the players to the first part, when Kratos wanted to spare Modi, the son of Thor, but Atreus killed him.
God of War: Ragnarok will release on November 9th for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
