This is just a wild guess, but I don’t think I’ll be the only one who will be the first God of War game God of War Ragnarok. Fortunately for me, the developers were waiting for players who didn’t play anymore God of War (2018). When you download Ragnarök At the top of the main menu appears a very convenient option titled “God of War summary.”
At first I thought it would help people like me Ragnarök knowing for sure what happened in the previous game and what to do Wait in this game. However, after watching it, I’m more convinced that it’s actually meant for those who haven’t played it yet. God of War for a while. This is because the half-minute video jumps unevenly from scene to scene and is delivered without context or any actual direct plot summary of the first game. Even though I looked, I have no idea what happened. So I decided it would be funny to write a post about what I thought happened God of War based on official summary per year Ragnarökmain menu of .
There is a big, strong bearded boy named Kratos and a small boy named Atreus. At least that much I can understand because to my surprise I already knew who they were. The game begins because Atreus’ mother has died, and he and his father want to spread her ashes on a mountaintop.
It seems like a pretty tough job because a random lady says the area is the realm of the gods. I don’t know if it’s the mountain region they have to go to, but I’m going to assume it is, because why on Earth would they want to go there otherwise? Kratos tells someone they are gods; but I cannot tell whether it is addressed to Atreus or to this lady, Freya. I’m guessing it’s Freya, since the synopsis suggests she uses magical powers that can make plants grow, and she’s meant to be the leader of the Vanir.
Kratos decapitates a boy named Mimir and immediately presents him to a giant dragon thing. I don’t know why Mimir invited Kratos to decapitate him, but in the clip, Kratos has his head up, so I think Kratos did it. Mimir mentions that Kratos killed the children of Odin, who I guess is a god. Kratos then gives li’l hot gossip about himself. He seems to have chosen to be a man, but he is actually a god. So now I don’t know if he’s a god or a human or just a really strong person.
Atreus learns that he is a god. He says he’s huge, but he looks normal to me. This makes Atreus think that as a god he can do whatever he wants and he goes and kills another god. (This god doesn’t seem to have fought the kid.) Kratos is very upset as he yells and tells Atreus that there are consequences if you kill a god.
This is when the story becomes more dramatic. Another friend named Baldur enters the picture. He doesn’t seem to like Kratos and Freya. And I assume Kratos and Freya are reunited, so I assume Freya serves as Kratos’ guide. But now things look bad because this Baldur guy gets angry and Kratos shakes his head and kills him. I don’t know why he’s upset, but it might be because Atreus literally killed a god. Meanwhile, Freya mourns Baldur’s death and calls him her son, so I assume he is.
Atreus then notices that someone is calling him Loki, and he asks about it. Kratos is not going to explain anything! He deflects Atreus’ question. I think Atreus is not just a god, but an extra special god because Loki is such a significant Marvel character.
Finally, we see them above the clouds and somewhat at peace, so it appears that they have accomplished their goal of spreading the ashes. (Though, again, I’d like to know why it matters.) The synopsis doesn’t say if Atreus is directly related to Kratos, which seems pretty significant. Overall, the first game has a lot of unresolved plot points to develop. Ragnarök. The summary wasn’t amazing, but you know what? I refused to look at the wikis when I needed more information.
