God of War Ragnarok story
When the God of War franchise was first announced, it was met with mixed reactions from gamers and critics alike. The story of Kratos and Atreus had been told before, but many wondered how the series would continue to evolve. Many gamers were concerned about the lack of innovation in the gameplay, and for some, this was enough to send them away. However, Santa Monica Studio has proven time again that they are able to deliver on their promises.
In PlayStation’s official blog post, they shared some details about the story of God of War Ragnarok. The game will pick up a few years after the events of God of War and will test the survival skills of Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir. The developer says: “While the last game built an enormous amount of trust and understanding between father and son… there is still a great deal of complexity in their interactions – especially after the revelation of Atreus’ Giant heritage and the hidden prophecy only Kratos saw…”
The sequel will explore the relationship between Kratos and Atreus with higher stakes
The official story synopsis for God of War is out, and it’s not particularly spoiler-y.
“Fimbulwinter is well underway. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters.”
It sounds like Kratos and Atreus’ quest is going to take them all over Norse mythology, from icy realms to fiery ones. The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer in this game, which is likely what prompts Kratos to decide whether or not he should stay alive or die with the rest of humanity.
The official listing for PlayStation’s God of War game, which is due out in 2020, has revealed the story synopsis. The synopsis reads: “Fimbulwinter is well underway.

The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.
