God of War: Ragnarok May Be The End for Kratos In More Ways Than One

Other details were also confirmed, such as travel to all 9 realms, Thor and Freya serving as the main antagonists, and more. One key detail, however, stands out, and it could define Kratos’ fate in God of War: Ragnarok.

This detail came as a confirmation that God of War: Ragnarok serves as the end of the Norse Saga. In other words, the adventure here won’t be a trilogy like Kratos’ Greek adventures, and this is the last game set here. Now, this doesn’t rule out future God of War games, as it could go to another mythology next, but it doesn’t bode well for Kratos.

Ragnarok is the twilight and death of the gods, a circular prophecy that Kratos and Atreus are trying to stop. Atreus seems intent on discovering and understanding his Loki identity, while also saving the people from Ragnarok. Those are some pretty big stakes, and it seems the game will resolve most of them. If it’s going to make Ragnarok feel impactful, killing the one god who matters to players might just be the answer. In fact, how may have already been teased.

Knowing the quest now could recontextualize this mural. They are searching for assistance from Tyr, to avert war with Asgard, and to prevent Ragnarok. These goals are incredibly lofty, and it could be that Krato gives his life to end the event—or to at least save Atreus. The mural was already bad news for Kratos, and the confirmation that this is not a trilogy just emphasizes that Kratos’ story seems to be coming to an end. His last game and his death are things fans may be coming to terms with sometime next year.

The good news is, again, that his death doesn’t mean God of War is at its end. Perhaps like his father, Atreus travels to a new land after sparing the Norse people from Ragnarok, and the stories continue with a new playable character. It all remains to be seen, and it is possible that there are other plans or that these hints are red herrings, but God of War: Ragnarok has a lot to answer for—and it seems it will.
