God Of War

God Of War !

They say that video games are not a good source of teaching, but we do not doubt that God of War fans knows more about mythology than most. Okay, we Greeks knew a little about Disney’s Hercules, but Kratos is, let’s say, more realistic. After taking down more than half Olympus in his original trilogy, our favorite God of War sought a peaceful retreat to the north. The problem is that he ended up, unwittingly, in the middle of Ragnarok, one that will cause his son Loki or at least that is how the prophecies say.

We also have to become experts in Norse mythology between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the Vikings series, and God of War. However, no one should be ashamed of having seen the new God of War: Ragnarok trailer and having ended with many doubts, especially about the character of Tyr, who is critical in the game. On Mimir’s advice, Atreus / Loki and Kratos set out on their quest to enlist his help. We do not know much more about his role in the game, beyond the fact that Kratos reaches his waist, but we can go to mythology to unravel more about this crucial character in the Nordic imaginary.

Unlike Ares, the Greek God of War before Kratos arrived, Tyr is the God of War and order. He is the most generous and peaceful God of the Asgard, known for wanting to meditate before a conflict for his bravery and grit. In Ragnarok, he will lose an arm while they bind Fenrir, the wolf son of Loki, who will kill Odin. He volunteers to put his arm in the animal’s mouth and bang. Later, he will die in battle while killing, inside, Garm, the Guardian dog of Helheim (the Norse underworld). But God of War happens before these events, and Atreus has not had a wolf child that we know of.
God of War: Ragnarok was announced on September 16, 2020, so waiting for it within a year of its introduction seems like an illusion. We won’t see it appear on PS5 until 2022.

Development news

Sony Santa Monica has been working on God of War: Ragnarok, with Cory Balrog at the helm, since the launch of the previous installment, but in mid-2019, there was still job offers destined to continue fattening the development team.

For now, it is unknown what path the story will take, but it seems that everything will revolve around how Atreus discovers that his identity is that of Loki and that, therefore, he is closely linked to the gods that rule those lands. Fighting them could well unleash the Ragnarok that is included in the title.

According to some sources, one of the incredible novelties of the game could be that Atreus himself becomes the protagonist and playable character of this sequel, but for now, no details have been officially offered about it.

Gameplay and game modes

After succeeding as one of the last great PS4 games with its particular sequence shot, it is to be expected that God of War: Ragnarok will maintain the same style of action and cinematography.

Thanks to the new DualSense, it will incorporate improvements such as haptic vibration, which will make us notice when Kratos throws his Leviathan ax at an enemy both when throwing and picking it up and when he uses his shield.

Although Tyr is an essential God, while Thor is the assassin who fuels Odin’s bloodlust, Tyr is something heavy that always stops the other two from taking down the whole world. In God of War: Ragnarok, Tyr is locked up, and we assume he has to do with his convincing Odin to let some giants escape to Jotunheim and close the door for good, rather than exterminating them all. Things did not go quite well, and, naturally, Odin’s anger turned against the advisor who offered him “more peaceful means.”

That seems the essential story in Tyr that will link him with Kratos and Atreus, son of the giant Freya, which will lead them to explore more and better the kingdom of the giants, whose seal they broke at the end of the last title. Only he, in addition, could mediate to prevent a war between the good Kratos, who is not allowed to retire, and Asgard, with Thor and Odin at the head.

Let us not be fooled by his mediator and benevolent record, though; Tyr was as much a God of war as he was of order. Although he was known to use his powers to help people more than the rest of the selfish gods, this is a tough guy, one whose rune (an upward arrow) was used to adorn Viking weapons and who in some cultures and times was even more worshiped than Odin. The last thing we can theorize about is its size. According to the minor Edda and the more symbolic meaning of his origin, Tyr is the son of Odin and Frigg. However, according to the Greater Edda, he is the son of the giants Hymir and Herod. If it were this last line that the game accepts, we explain its size, but the relationship of enmity between him and Odin would be even more manifest.
