We're in for a hell of a ride with this one, y'all. Not ready.

ID: hc8avt2

It's going to be quite the ride. I'm expecting Atreus and Kratos to have a big falling out. Maybe even an actual fight. Does Atreus accidentally hurt or kill Kratos?

ID: hc8ivj7

Considering the end of the first game showed Kratos dying to Atreus I can also foresee some father-son fight as well lol.

ID: hc8bm0k

That would be badass. Just hoped there was a third game where this would happen. Boy being the final boss.

ID: hc88ayz

This is going to be absolutely epic.

And Balrog isn't directing which I guess was common knowledge but that was a hard hit for me. GoW was magnificently directed, one of if not the most finely directed cinematic games ever.

ID: hc89jjc

I read someplace he got to do a SciFi game due to the success of GoW. The game looks incredible but yeah kinda feels weird now I known Balrog won't be directing.

Especially after watching that mini doc on the creation of GoW and knowing how much he oyut into it.

ID: hc8avms

Yup, he's 100% working on a space epic.

ID: hc8jm72

The only reason people think he's making a space game is because he changed his Twitter profile to space theme.

ID: hc8a4h5

Good thing is Cory is probably working on his original ip, he's been wanting to make.

ID: hc89jcb

I honestly doubt that will make a difference. From the footage, honestly I couldn't tell it apart from the first game at times. Animations and environments are different and Atreus' balls have dropped, that's about it. Looked like DLC to me.

Not saying btw that it's a bad thing, more GoW works well for me and still looks excellent, I'm saying I wouldn't expect much to change in respect of cinematics etc.

ID: hc8rmj5

While of course, the overall design won't change (it's a sequel not a reinvention), maybe a small trailer for what will probably be a very long game (if it's the finale, there is a lot of stuff to show, Ragnarok is not some small event) isn't the best to judge that. I'm sure there's tons that is not shown.

But yeah I'm not worried, it's still the same studio (the director isn't doing everything in a video game), the new guy worked on all the God of War games and they do not put anyone in charge of such a project, I'm sure he deserves it

ID: hc8kn3b

It wasn't common knowledge but if you look at their history it was an easy thing to predict.

4 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:02 ID: hc896m8

I guess we heard that differently. My understanding was that Ragnarok is setting up for the finale.

ID: hc8cx1k

he definitely said it's SETTING UP the finale, since a trilogy makes logical sense. op misunderstood

ID: hc8gimq

Nah, director also said “it will cap off the Norse saga”.

ID: hc8goy0

Cory sitting there sweating like - I was supposed to finish it in two games?!

ID: hc8iw2f

They said in the interview afterwards that this caps of the norse series. Hopefully they’ll clarify soon but seems like this is it.

Edit: IDK why this is being downvoted, there were two separate comments. One about building to a finale and one about capping the series. We’re all torn in this thread. It obviously needs clarification.

Knowing this is gonna be the epic finale for the Norse Saga and Ragnarok is gonna be limited by the PS4 feels a little disheartening, but I'm sure it'll still be good.

ID: hc8oggt

I think the bigger news is that they are calling it "the norse saga". I get the impression that all this is building up for Kratos to tackle yet another pantheon.

I wouldn't mind if we eventually got to Cthulhu. Kratos fighting big otherwordly sea monsters would be pretty rad.

ID: hc8p1jf

Fighting unfathomable lovecraftian gods would be so fucking cool.

ID: hc8pjd6

I hope so. I just hope they don’t kill him at the end. I keep getting that feeling.

Though, granted, they did that once already.

ID: hc8rtmi

I mean the 2018 game was pretty clear that Tyr can travel between realms. And we'll find Tyr in this game. Tyr and Kratos are both gods of war.

That's writing itself

ID: hc8bx5g

It will no doubt be great, regardless if it’s bleeding edge graphics. The game still looks absolutely fuckingtastic.

Seems odd, thought the norse setting will be a trilogy.

ID: hc88fz0

I assumed a trilogy as well. I’m expecting another “saga” since they will be ending the Norse Saga as stated on the stream. Maybe Egyptian mythology next?

ID: hc88wmx

Hmmm, seems like a good bet honestly. What else could they really go for?

ID: hc8ajii

Never gonna happen but I’m lowkey hoping Aztec mythology next.

ID: hc89dg7

Ya I thought Thor this time, and Odin next game.

7 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:57 ID: hc88dc3

Oh wow, so not a trilogy then? That's different, but if thats the story they have to tell then there's no reason to stretch it out.

8 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:55 ID: hc882os

So what mythological period is next then?

ID: hc88ssm

Aztec / pre Columbian would be great, there's barely anything with this mythology in medias

ID: hc8a46y

Catholic. Down with Jesus and God.

ID: hc8g75d

Hold circle to drown Noah

ID: hc8mzz4

Can you imagine the chaos if they made the Jesus fight like the Zeus fight in GoW3?

Wooooooooooo BOY

ID: hc889t6


ID: hc88maw

They teased them in god of war 2018. Idk exactly what the other symbols where but it showed greek, norse, egyptian and an asian one. I'm curious now so im gonna look it up lol.

ID: hc8jwal

Kratos fucks up Buddha

ID: hc8f3az

The "asian" one was Japanese.

ID: hc88vo0

It could be Egypt or maybe they go with aisan mythology which are not that present in game right now.

9 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:57 ID: hc88d14

When is it releasing ?

ID: hc88y98

2022 currently, but I was bit disheartened when no set date was given at the end of the trailer.

I'm hoping no delays are necessary.

10 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:54 ID: hc8gkqs

Aztec next please

11 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:03 ID: hc89ai4

How long is this game gonna be if the entirety of ragnarok plus finding tyr and learning of loki is happening. Plus fighting freya, thor, odin. This might be a big game, side quests might be mandatory if you want to know everything.

ID: hc8bfjl

I hope it’s really long

12 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:11 ID: hc8afqm

I hope it’s a long, meaty game then, with plenty of story, character development, new areas, and post-game content/superbosses.

The Norse setting has been really fun. If this is where they’re going to end it, I hope they really take the time to explore it fully.

13 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:58 ID: hc88jvp

Huh. Really thought this was gonna be a trilogy

14 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:14 ID: hc8asrh

Can’t wait to see Kratos kill Thor with the Mjolnir

15 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:18 ID: hc8bgl1

If this is the end to the Nordic saga then I can only imagine how epic and insane the climax of this game will be. Hopefully they wrap up the story nicely and concretely since its only the second game of this new setting
