Many years have passed since Kratos took his vengeance against the Olympian gods. Having survived his final encounter with his father Zeus, Kratos now lives with his young son Atreus in the world of the Norse gods, a savage land inhabited by many ferocious monsters and warriors. In order to teach his son how to survive in such a world, Kratos must master the rage that has driven him for many years and embrace his newfound role as a father and mentor.


While the first seven games were loosely based on Greek mythology, this new installment will be based on Norse mythology. Barlog explained the transition: “it’s kind of this BC–AD change over kind of thing. We’re moving and starting from zero and kind of moving forward on that.” Before settling on Norse mythology, Egyptian mythology was also considered.

Barlog said that half of the team was for it, but since “there’s a lot more about civilization – it’s less isolated, less barren”, they decided on the Norse setting because they wanted the focus to stay on Kratos: “Having too much around distracts from that central theme of a stranger in a strange land.”  In explaining why Kratos is now in the Norse world, Barlog said that different culture’s belief systems coexisted, but they were “separated by geography”, suggesting that Kratos traveled from Greece to Norway (Scandinavia) after the conclusion of God of War III.

Barlog also confirmed that this game predates the Vikings; it is the time in which their gods walked the Earth. Throughout the game, players will be able to visit some of the nine realms of Norse mythology.
