2018’s God of War was a fantastic reboot of the over-the-top and grandiose action-adventure series starring the fallen demi-god Kratos, and developer Sony Santa Monica Studios plans to release the follow-up sometime next year. Revealed during Sony’s June PS5 reveal event, the next game will see the return of Kratos and Atreus as they explore more of the ancient Norse realms and encounter more powerful gods looking for retribution.
The Story So Far
Though details are scarce about the sequel’s plot, it’s fair to say that Kratos and his son Atreus will have new enemies to face as Ragnarok approaches. Towards the end of the original game, both demi-gods have a brief encounter with the hammer-wielding god of thunder, Thor, and it looks as though it won’t be a peaceful meeting. In the reveal trailer shown off in June 2020, we saw a brief look at the logo for the next game, along with a voiceover from Kratos saying the words, “you must prepare yourself.”
