God of War Ragnarok Development Lead Eric Williams in an interview IGN told what to expect from the next part of the cult series of slashers in a narrative sense.
According to Williams, God of War (2018) left behind a lot of questions for the players (and the main characters), and God of War Ragnarok will try to answer them, while asking several new ones.
Recall that after the death of his wife Fay, the Spartan Kratos took over the upbringing of Atreus (son). During the game, the protagonist makes several shocking revelations about his family. Followed by spoilers to God of War (2018).
“What I especially liked was the idea of significant growth [Кратоса] at the end of the last game. When he found out that the boy was Loki, and his wife did not tell the truth, he was left alone [с этой информацией]… Have [Фэй]to whom he entrusted his life, there were still secrets from him “Williams explained.
The father-son relationship will remain paramount in the storyline of God of War Ragnarok. This is especially true of the theme of Atreus ‘personality and Kratos’ lack of knowledge about this issue before the final revelations of God of War (2018).
The release of God of War Ragnarok is expected in 2022 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. As part of the last online presentation of the PlayStation Showcase 2021, the name of the game was confirmed and its first full-fledged trailer was presented.
Following this demonstration, Williams also let it slipthat God of War Ragnarok will be the end of Kratos’ Scandinavian adventures and will offer a glimpse of Ragnarok from Santa Monica Studio.
