Kratos and Atreus have passed through most of the nine realms, but there are still some new realms they can visit in God of War Ragnarok.
God of War 2018 is a breathtaking adventure, colossal in both size and scope. The PlayStation exclusive introduces gamers to a fascinating version of Norse mythology, in which protagonist Kratos and his son Atreus embark on a journey that could change their lives. The duo’s quest took them across the Nine Realms, and by using a powerful key called the Bifrost, they were able to frequently jump between most of these realms when they needed to. God of War Ragnarok is closer than ever and many fans must have been hoping that this highly anticipated sequel would allow gamers to travel to the lands of the Nine Realms that were not possible in the first game. can come.
Details about Ragnarok have been slowly released, including a map of the Nine Realms and confirmation that this adventure will span all lands, including three realms not featured in God of War . These three lost lands are Asgard, home of Aesir, and the great hall of Valhalla; Vanaheim, home of Vanir and a land of lush gardens and fields; and finally Svartalfheim, home of the dwarves. Each of these three new locations will give players a new perspective on the world of Kratos.
Asgard is the home of the Aesir, one of two tribes of Norse gods that exist in this universe. The king of Aesir, the mighty Odin, resides here with Thor, the God of Thunder that every gamer knows the fame of. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will likely be familiar with Asgard, as it’s a regular location in several of Marvel’s Thor films. However, this version of Asgard will likely be very different.
As one of the kingdoms of the gods, Asgard was also the battlefield for a mighty war between Aesir and Vanir, and it is likely that some remnants of that war will still be on full display when Kratos and Atreus arrive. visit here. The prophecy foretold that when Ragnarok arrives, Asgard’s destiny will be consumed by the mighty fire giant Surtr the Brave, before the world is reborn. Since Kratos is in conflict with Thor and Odin during the events of Ragnarok, Asgard will likely be the setting for some of the most epic battles in the game to take place.
The second of the unvisited gamer realms is Vanaheim. Home to the Vanir, the second of two tribes of Norse gods, Vanaheim is said to be a beautiful, green place, with gardens and fields far beyond sight. Vanaheim was also devastated during the war between Vanir and Aesir. However, what this kingdom will have for Kratos and Atreus is still unknown.
The marriage of leader Vanir Freya to Odin, King of Aesir, brought peace to the land as well as other realms. However, when this marriage fell apart, Odin severed the road to Vanaheim, and only through a magical window in Freya’s house can the player glimpse this beautiful world so far. . It’s likely we’ll see more of it in the sequel.
The third and final inaccessible realm is Svartalfheim, home of the dwarves. Odin sealed the entrance to this kingdom to prevent any sign of alliance between the dwarves and the Vanir. The scenes of Ragnarok gave gamers a pretty clear view of this realm, and on the surface it seemed to resemble Midgard. This place seems to be crowded with dwarves and their various machines, with a diverse landscape of mountains and islands. The powerful dwarf steel, simply known as ‘Svartalfheim steel’ is housed in various rare chests scattered across the nine realms and provides another indication of the highly revered dwarven craft. Atreus and Kratos will be able to find both allies and enemies as they adventure through this realm.
With six other realms all confirmed to appear again, Kratos and Atreus will embark on an even bigger adventure than last time in God of War Ragnarok. When the game releases in November, gamers will be able to form a full, detailed look at Nine Realms, which is an exciting prospect not only for God of War fans, but also people interested in Norse mythology.
