Sony tease a very exciting setting for the God of War sequel
More like "God of Awh, give us more details!"
Released on 20 April 2018, the rebooted God of War went on to become a critical and commercial success, winning multiple End of Year awards.
JOE even named it as best game of 2018 (sorry, Red Dead 2 and Spider-Man!), but it really is a fantastically well put together experience.
We've known for a while that there were multiple sequels in the pipeline, but exactly how they'd play out, especially after that teasing, cliffhanger-y ending, had left us with A LOT of questions.
This week, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the game's release, Sony have released some freebies, including some avatar sets and themes.
Specifically though, this new theme is the one that some folk have been paying a lot of attention to:
On the side of the boat, there are some new ruin-y symbols, and someone on Reddit has translated them from Norse to English:
"Ragnarok Is Coming"
While most people only know that as the subtitle to a Thor movie, it does involve pretty much the same story: a huge battle between the most powerful creatures in the world, resulting in the end of the road for several Norse gods.
Which is pretty much par for the course for Kratos, considering that during his original run as an Ancient Greek God-smasher, he was often known for making immortal beings very, very mortal.
God of War's director took to Twitter this week to announce that the anniversary wouldn't end with just these goodies though, and since the actual anniversary is on Saturday, we should probably keep an eye out for a full-on sequel announcement...
Just so no one gets the wrong idea - there is no DLC coming for the game. Sorry.
