Kratos to fight Norse gods in next God of War game?

Kratos has taken out a lot of the Greek gods. So what’s next for the Spartan warrior? In God of War III, he impaled himself with the Blade of Olympus, however, the ending was ambiguous about his actual fate. Now we have some new leaked concept art suggesting that the next God of War game will focus on Norse mythology.

NerdLeaks was able to post the concept art from an artist’s personal website who worked at Santa Monica Studios, the developer for God of War, in 2015. The art includes environments and a protagonist who looks like Kratos wielding an axe. The site and its Twitter account have been shut down, but they were later posted at NeoGAF.

The art does mention the name of Kratos as he appears to be visiting Alfheim and Vanaheimr, two of the Nine World. The faeries inhabit the realm of Alfheim, which features an ancient stone city with cool colors. Vanaheimr is vibrant with giant trees, flowers and plant life.

David Jaffe, director of the God of War games, has said awhile back that Norse mythology was a possibility.

Since Kratos was deeply entrenched in Greek mythology, perhaps we’ll be getting a new protagonist of Norse origin. Maybe Thor will be the main character? Perhaps it’ll focus on a defeated Loki as he tries to take over the Nine Realms. With that said, the Norse mythology would be interesting for a God of War game since it has a lot of creatures like the Auðumbla, Gullinbursti, the giants, Surtr, Jörmungandr the serpent, and the monstrous wolf Fenrir.

The last God of War game was Ascension in 2013, so it won’t be surprising if Santa Monica Studios reveals a new God of War game soon.

Would you like to see Kratos return to fight the Norse gods, or would you like to see a new protagonist?
