God of War of 2018 allowed us to meet numerous Norse deities, most of them hostile to Kratos ed Atreus with whom they have engaged in repeated fights during their adventure.
Some gods, however, were only mentioned in the previous game of the signed series Santa Monica Studiosand are preparing to make their physical appearance in God of War Ragnarokavailable from November 9, 2022 on PlayStation 5 e PS4. Among these it also stands out Odinthe most important Norse deity. Who is Odin in God of War Ragnarok? If you haven’t played God of War yet and don’t want to spoil any possible surprises, do not continue reading any further.
The “father of all gods”, king of the Aesir e you Asgard as well as ex-husband of Freya (in this regard, that’s who Freya from God of War Ragnarok is), is described as a god of death, wisdom, poetry and war. Without ever having met him, during their journey to JotunheimKratos and Atreus got to know many stories about Odin thanks to the tales of Mimirwho describes him as an extremely cruel and evil god, as well as very intelligent, ready to counteract by force anyone who jeopardizes his dominion and that of the Aesir, including his own children, as Tyr (we find out who Tyr is in God of War Ragnarok), who fought his father in an attempt to protect the Giants from extermination.
During the events of the previous God of War, it is revealed that it was Odin who imprisoned and tortured Mimir on top of the mountain of Midgardin addition to putting his son Baldur on the trail of Faye, dead wife of Kratos long considered a threat to the Aesir kingdom. She also controls everything that happens in the world through hers crows (known as “the eyes of Odin”), which gather information for him about everything that happens.
Odin therefore stands as one of the main antagonists of God of War Ragnarok: his figure has not yet been fully revealed, although in one of the game trailers you can see a dark hooded figure go near the house of Kratos, which should represent the most important god Aesir. Could it be that between Kratos and Odin is around the corner?
