portal GameRant notes that the action-adventure God of War Ragnarok contains a selection of hilarious references to other PlayStation exclusives. Attention: possible minor spoilers.
As it became known, the “Easter Eggs” took the form of poems by Sage Kvasir – works scattered across the various worlds of God of War Ragnarok, whose names and content allude to popular Sony games.
There are a total of 14 such poems in God of War Ragnarok. They contain references to Death Stranding, Dreams, Horizon, The Last of Us, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, Ghost of Tsushima, Bloodborne, Days Gone, and others.
For example, the poem about Death Stranding mentions several key concepts for the game (child, shore, resin) and in the poem about The Last of Us (screenshot attached above) “heavy bearded man” With “adopted daughter”.
Each work is a separate book with a cover guessing references (see frame below). For example, Bloodborne’s tome contains the Hunter’s Hunter’s Insignia.
This isn’t the first time players have found references to Sony Interactive Entertainment projects in a new exclusive. Upon release, a dozen origami figurines were found in the same Ghost of Tsushima, indicative of a game or in-house studio owned by a Japanese platform owner.
God of War Ragnarok debuted on PS4 and PS5 on November 9th. According to the plot, on the eve of Ragnarok, the Spartan Kratos and his son Atreus will visit all Nine Worlds of Scandinavian mythology.
