God of War director Ragnarok says ending will be “surprising”


According to the new director of the series, God of War Ragnarok will end the “Nordic Saga” for Kratos and his son and provide a “surprising but inevitable” conclusion to their epic journey.

Since its reveal, there have been a lot of different theories about the upcoming sequel and its plot, but we still don’t have a clear picture of how the sequel’s story will play out. However, new God of War director Eric Williams – who was previously referred to as a “beast mother” by lead actor Christopher Judge – has hinted that God of War fans will be in awe of Ragnarok’s finale.

Speaking to IGN, Eric Williams revealed that with God of War Ragnarok, Santa Monica Studio wanted to tell “a very heartfelt and epic story” about the traveling father-son duo and their inner struggle. In the director’s words, players will see dramatic slices of their lives and how they deal with their emotions, and it was important for the team to come up with an appropriate ending for both titles at the same time.

Williams is convinced that “the mundane things are just as interesting as the big world events”, so perhaps you can expect more personal and smaller information about Kratos and his son. With the harsh Nordic environment that surrounds them, the Santa Monica team say they have created “an experience very worthy of the name of God of War”.

“In the end, we just want to have an ending that feels very […] surprising but inevitable based on all of these things, ”said Williams. Additionally, the director has confirmed that Ragnarok will indeed be performing in the game – just as you can suggest from his title. “Prepare yourself,” he warned.

Previously, Cory Barlog compared the experience of playing both Norse Saga games to the extended Lord of the Rings trilogy, which he described as a contained and satisfying story. Tracking will also dramatically improve the combat system, adding verticality and new skills, including various defensive capabilities for retractable shields.

God of War Ragnarok will launch on PS4 and PS5 in 2022.
