New for God of War Ragnarök!
For PlayStation gamers most eager to see what Santa Monica Studio has cooked up with the sequel to the adventures of Kratos and Atreus, this holiday is a blessing. Quite simply because we are entitled to a short six-minute recap of the father-son epic released in 2018 and a leak has just revealed to us a very interesting element on one of the most anticipated characters of this sequel on PS4 and PS5.
So far, the various excerpts published have revealed familiar faces – even if Atreus has grown in stature – and newcomers who will be of great help to the ancient warrior of Sparta and his offspring, in particular Týr and Angrboda. However, Santa Monica Studio has remained quite mysterious concerning the occupants of Asgard that we will be able to meet. If we were able to quickly discover the god Thor, who is far from resembling the image that Disney has been portraying for a few years, his father, Odin, is rather resistant to the idea of revealing his face at this stage. Nevertheless, it is now possible to discover the first sketches.

In this case, additional information has been provided to rule on the veracity of this concept art, now certified as legitimate.. However, nothing is set in stone regarding Odin’s appearance in God of War: Ragnarokand it could be that the members of the studio have made some adjustments to his look, hardest to design according to the artistic director. Maybe we’ll have the chance to discover all this in a future trailer!
