Spoilers for God of War (2018) ahead!
By the end of God of War (2018), we get to know that Atreus is in fact Loki, the God of Mischief. However, it will be an interesting play as in the mythology, Fenrir is one of the children of Loki. The game is following its own storyline which is inspired by the original mythology but still maintains its originality. We also get a good look at new icy monsters emerging from the wilderness.
God of War Ragnarok will also be picking up from Kratos’ last encounter/dream where we see Odinson Thor for the first time in the God of War universe. We are expecting Thor to be one of the final boss fights in the storyline.
