God of War Ragnarok, the latest adventure of Kratos and Atreus, has been out for several months now, although it still does talk about yourself.
The sequel to the big one released in 2018 (which you can also find on Amazon at a really good price) is in fact available on PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles, thus closing the epic saga of the God of the War.
In fact, in our review of the game we told you that “Ragnarok is the irrepressible evolution of the previous chapter, capable of improving every feature of the game in the round, up to enhancing it in a grandiose and impeccable way.”

As also reported by VGC, Kratos could have had a different fate in God of War Ragnarok, as revealed by the game’s narrative director .
In speaking with MinnMax, Matt Sophos was asked about the ending of the God of War from 2018, during which Kratos sees a mural showing his death, hinting at a prophecy that could have occurred in the next game.
Although the mural is shown again at the beginning of Ragnarok, Kratos at the end of the game doesn’t leave us pens: Sophos was asked if there are ever There have been plans to actually kill the God of War.
“There was the first, very first draft of a scheme that we had developed and that we brought to director Eric Williams”, replied Sophos, revealing that in this draft «Kratos died in the fight with Thor at the beginning of the game».
he continued: «And so he would die, even if it would not be a permanent death . What would have happened […] is that it would have been Atreus’s turn to bring him out of the underworld. But 20 years have now passed, it would have been a big time leap.”
«Eric said: ‘I don’t want to do this, Kratos died and then he came back too many times, it would have been a bit much’. […] The hook, the emotion, there wouldn’t have been, and he was absolutely right, and that’s why the idea didn’t last long.”
Sophos also added that the game’s current ending, in which Kratos is still alive, helped send players the message that the fate of heroes is not sealed.
We also remind you that God of War will become a TV series produced by Amazon Prime Video, thus adding to the amount of projects for the small screen.
But that’s not all: the game has recently reached the figure of 11 million copies sold, which is surprising even for a game the size of God of War Ragnarok.
Finally, weeks ago Cory Barlog may have confirmed the development of a sequel to Ragnarok, also anticipating one of the story’s themes.
