Ragnarok will be the ninth entry in the series, and the sequel to God of War, which was released in 2018. The game is set in ancient Scandinavia, featuring Kratos and his adolescent son Atreus as the protagonists, and is loosely based on Norse mythology. Three years after the events of the last game, Fimbulwinter, a tremendous winter spanning three summers, is coming to an end, signalling the start of the foretold Ragnarök.
Kratos and his son Atreus go on a journey through the nine realms in search of a way to halt Ragnarök while also hoping to find the truth about Atreus’ true nature as Loki. Their adventure will take them to Tr, the Norse God of War, who was thought to be dead. Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, and Freya, an ally-turned-enemy who seeks vengeance for the murder of her son Baldur, will be at odds with them.
