Forums - Gaming Discussion - God of war spoiler theories.

Spoilers of course. Don't read further if you don't want to be spoiled.

GoW's been on the mind since I finished it even though I'm three games past it. So if you're like me and can't get it off the mind but don't want to play it again so early, lets discuss spoilers and theories.

My main one is the first time I played through it I was sure they were setting up Atreus to be Tyr and on reflection it makes sense that they purposely crafted it that way, however we know he is Loki. Now, if I'm not mistaken and my memory is serving me correctly to the aspects where I was led to believe this is Tyr then Kratos.

Tyr, The God of war, Friend of the giants and someone who became a thorne in Odins side or at least a significant threat. As they are weaving in the lore Kratos must have a place and I'd reckon that place is to be Tyr. There are some obvious flaws like time travel is needed but that's already heavily hinted at and as Kratos is fond of saying, nothing is ever written.

What say you? And what theories do you have regarding any aspect of the game?

Finished it on the 26th of last month, done Yakuza and a story run through of Kingdom come, started Matterfall this evening. Some cool paintR VR weaved in and finished the last level of Hellblade. I ran through GoW in 6 days, quicker than the biblical god made the Universe. I had some sleep loss to say the least.

You finished GoW in 6 days while doing every sidequest and exploring all the areas?

Anyway, I love the part in the game where Mimir talks about 'a faraway land covered in sand' or something like that, clearly referring to Egypt...I can see Atreus as the future protagonist and fighting Egyptian gods.

Plat'd in 6 days. Full throttle, best game I've played in ages.

Yeah, the four symbols hint and that indeed, they are leaving themselves choices as well which is great. There is some time travel to be worked in here and I'm not sure if I'm to keen on it, but they are Gods, alas.

My main theory is that Kratos is gonna die in the next game or two by Thor (Frea will likely choose that moment to get revenge, maybe alter Atreus' memory) then Odin adopts Atreus into their pantheon because of his level of power (his mixed bloodline) to use. It fits into the lore of Loki. Atreus recovers his memory somehow when he's an adult and seeks revenge against Thor and odin. Since Atreus is not his father, he won't wipe almost everything. More than likely he allies with Tyr.



Regarding Kratos being Tyr it's pretty obvious that the World Serpent is from the future, Mimir says that their's a rumour that he was hit so hard by Thor during Ragnarok that he gets sent back in time. So that's a way that the time travel would work, though i do not think that Kratos will be tyr in this "time line" as it would mean that the same series of events occurred.

When it comes to my own personal theories i mainly have one, and it has to do with fate. We're told throughout the game that the giants have future seeing capabilities and i think that it's false. First of all we know that Kratos is already able to change, given what he did in the original trilogy, so his mere actions in the world will change that. Also i think that the next two games are really going to focus on "fate" being something that can be changed, such as all of the predictions about Ragnarok. So when it comes to Ragnarok the single thing that would have caused it is Odin's reaction to the predictions, and i foresee him as being blamed for the coming of the prophecy. This all makes it that the giants predictions aren't accurate, but that there mere existence paved the future.


And god your signature gives me a headache 



My theory is Kratos is world serpant! Having said that there are many question left to be answered mainly How Kratos reached norse, how he met Fey? I think the flash backs will be the main theme of the next game



Was the world serpent sent back in time? never got that part



I definitely think Atreus’ anger issues are going to play a big role in the next game and it’s going to be a much darker one. It’s going to play in winter anyway. The moment he “turned” and insulted Sindri and the thunderstorm started was such a powerful moment. Thor, winter, a return of Loki’s negative or at least difficult characteristics...plus probably the already teased shape shifting abilities.

It’s going to be one hell of a game. I just hope Corey Barlog doesn’t jump ship like he wished to do before release.
