that is probably thor

It's definitely thor.

ID: gwlik8h

I mean the game's true ending has Thor showing up at their house so it makes sense that he'd be outside looking in.

that is the ending i had

My brain sees "Balrog" every single time.

Fool of a Took!

I've been saying Balrog for a decade now. What the heck.

ID: gwjo8pj

Until you said something, I literally thought it was.

ID: gwkhe61

Came here to say the same thing, always thought “wahh, how belter would it be to have the surname Balrog”

ID: gwk08qh

What the fuck. Talk about Mandela effect. I've been saying Balrog too. Thought it was a dope ass lastname

ID: gwk8gmi

When I first heard his name I thought “what a perfect name for the hero of a bunch of fantasy/mythology nerds”, then after watching a few (great) interviews with him I finally heard someone ask him how many people call him Cory Balrog. That’s when I realized haha

ID: gwlxw6i

He had it as Balrog on his Twitter until a few days ago, lol

ID: gwl4im9

Holy shit, how have I gone this long seeing Balrog?

ID: gwlxxwn

A while, he used it as his Twitter display name for a long time probably just to fuck with people lol.

ID: gwjgco3

Just imagine a drunk tree trunk

'Bar log'

ID: gwlv3sh

I just realised that it is not Balrog after reading your comment, wow

ID: gwmb3dr

I read it as "bogroll" every single time.

For those outside of the UK, that means "toilet paper".

ID: gwktqkt

Barlog the Balrog

I regret nothing !!

I believe that will get the god of war focus when horizon zero dawn officially comes out , I think the next two months are focused on ratchet, then horizon, then God of war, hopefully by December but that’s wishful thinking

I'm still really hoping the rumor that Roger Clarke (who did the acting for Arthur Morgan), will be the voice for Thor is true.

ID: gwk9g1g

The battle of the “Boy!”s

ID: gwka6xa

Roger did much more than just voice act, both red dead and gow required the actors to carry out the scenes physically as they would in a movie with mo cap. I definitely hope that he'll play Thor as well though, I think he'd do a great job!

ID: gwkgxvu

True, I'll fix the comment to just say acting instead.

Here's the original art - not sure who made it yet.

This was part of a limited edition poster that came out around 2 years ago. Official artwork

He kinda resembles Thor in the after credit ending of GOW 2018.

Hello all! I just would like to warn you that this is the fan art from christmas time from 2018. I remembered it because I used this as the wallpaper for 2 years. There was also possibility to buy it printed. Here is the link to some article mentioning it:

What about the words on the cups? Any special message?

ID: gwle0ch

"Be sure to drink your ovaltine"

ID: gwms65j

On the GoW subreddit there's a whole discussion on stuff but a user and myself made our own little conspiracy: if you look at the original HD uncropped version of the pic then you see nine candles (Mimir blows one out) and 9 cups (one is spilling over). The runes are the symbols of each realm; the realm symbol on the cup being spilled over is Svartelfheim so maybe we see the destruction of that realm? Purely speculation here.

10 : Anonymous2021/05/01 13:12 ID: gwjchdd

That's cool and all but just remember, don't read too much into this, keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.

We already know it's coming, it's closer than we thought and we can assume that with a slight delay, it could release in the first half of 2022 which is pretty great IMO.

ID: gwjd5ks

It's just all the characters from the first game so there isn't anything to read into anyway

ID: gwjzd7z

I heard from my uncle at Sony that Kratos is in the second game, so I'm reading into it hard

ID: gwjeal1

You would be surprised, people were making posts when he retweeted someone's art or something like that.

I won't be surprised if suddenly people will expect a gameplay reveal next week since he changed his background to a GOW image.

It’s Thor and Jormungandr. There are 2 windows.

Here is the full picture.

Are people not seeing the black shaped figure on the window? It's Thor.

There are obvious runes on the cups. Someone find out what it means !!

Seems to be the first letter of each the realms in the game

24 : Anonymous2021/05/01 15:58 ID: gwjxd4q

I might be reading too much on this, but I think the runes on the wine glasses may be leading to something or it could be nothing.

P.S. his location says “the glittering fields”?

Sony is probably going to drop God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West trailers right around when E3 is to steal a bunch of attention away from whatever Microsoft shows.

31 : Anonymous2021/05/01 17:22 ID: gwk9d4a

Yea Sony will directly steal the spotlight then

32 : Anonymous2021/05/01 18:47 ID: gwklj68

I’m really hoping for a time jump. I want Atreus to be a teenager. Wouldn’t even mind playing as him. May be similar to another recent PS game but Kratos could die and you take over to avenge him, original God of War style, as Atreus.

36 : Anonymous2021/05/01 16:24 ID: gwk12ie

I don’t know if this is much more than just a nice picture tbh. It basically depicts the realm where each character is from or their story involves aligning with their cups in front of them, although I’m not sure about the sons of Baldur or the Huldra brothers. Then the world serpent is outside of the characters with the shadow figure I’m guessing is supposed to be Thor. It’s the symbol in the loading screen illustrated.
