Who plays Atreus in God of War Ragnarok?

Quite a bit of time has passed since the end of God of War, and Atreus has grown quite a bit since we last saw him. What's stayed the same, however, is his voice actor: Sunny Suljic. He returns to provide the slightly older and more confident voice to the growing Greek-Norse hybrid god. hyperxgaming.comGod of War Ragnarok lead cast and characters revealed

Who is Tyr in God of War?

In the God of War Series Týr was the son of Odin and an unknown woman and was the half-brother of Thor and Baldur. Although he was the god of war, Týr fought for peace. fandom.comTýr | God of War Wiki | Fandom

Is Cory Barlog directing God of War Ragnarok?

Cory Barlog has revealed that he won't be returning to direct Santa Monica Studio's upcoming Norse heavyweight God of War: Ragnarök. Instead, the latest installment to God of War will feature series veteran Eric Williams in the director's seat, while Barlog is moving on to work on other unannounced projects.

Spoilers: Thor will be in God of War Ragnarok. Hardly a shock, considering he's one of the most important figures in Norse myth — and it seems like he'll stand opposed to Kratos and Atreus. While his appearance was teased in the previous game, we've not really had a good look at him yet. Don't worry — Santa Monica Studio has unveiled a series of portraits showing each major character in Ragnarok, and that includes the god of thunder.

As you can see, the character is being voiced by Ryan Hurst, a veteran actor famous for roles in Sons of Anarchy, Outsiders, and lots more. Thor in God of War Ragnarok looks like a tough cookie, and we cannot wait to do battle with him when the time comes. That's going to be one awesome boss fight, right?

Anyway, courtesy of IGN, here are all the portraits for everyone else. They include other newcomers to the cast, including Angrboda, Durlin, and Tyr:

Battle of the dad bods it is then.

@nessisonett I wish I had Kratos’s Dad bod, but alas, I have Thor’s.

Not quite how I imagined him. But this could be a Thor who's a bit washed up after the war with the giants and no battles to fight.

So glad Mimir is back, I loved his witty dialogue in GoW.

@nessisonett Dad of Bod: Dadbodrok

@Enuo Ok Dadbodrok is genius. Sony better snap that one up.

@DarthKiwi - I will never not have a wide grin on my face whenever he tells one of his tales or cracks a joke.

Mimir foreshadowed Thor's appearance in the first game, remember when Mimir was telling Artreus about the World Serpent, and how he "Absolutely loathes the fat dobber".

@JustPlainLoco Have you heard of the audiobook for GoW? Mimir narrates it.

Thor you fat b*****d… Should be an easy boss fight, Kratos will run rings round him.

@AdamNovice - No but I certainly want it now!

I love how Kratos is finally going to have a foe that stands toe to toe with him that has a middle age dad bod.

Damn Modi looks a lot like his father if you do a side-by-side comparison, the resemblance is near uncanny in the facial department.

Now imagine if the thor from films looked like him 😂

It's in keeping with the appearance Thor has in Norse mythology for those who weren't expecting Dad bod Thor

Angrboda is the mother of Fenrir so... HYPED.

@BusyOlf Yeah, people are used to the Marvel one at this point. I would think there are many who probably think he was an Avenger to begin with.

@UltimateOtaku91 Well he did look a bit like this in one of them.

Wheres Odin? Unless They are Going to Show Him Later.

I respect this direction. It's way more convincing than the standard comic inspired stuff.

Giving Endgame Chris Hemsworth a run for his money!

Is this version of Thor battling depression too?

Everybody in nu God of War seems to be turning into a bear. I love it.

@UltimateOtaku91 Have you not seen Endgame? Lol

Need a Doughnut Kratos skin to make it fair

No sign of Odin makes me think he'll turn up right at the end, and secretly be zeus. Also in most Norse tellings Thor has either has a red/ginger beard with black hair or red hair and beard. Plus that's a power belly like in words strongest Man. Whilst both Eddie hall and hafthor have slimmed down for their fight neither could when the title of world's strongest Man without a power belly!

Why thor is fat? Isn't he fight all the time like kratos? Can't wait for the game

Finally, a character I can cosplay! 😅

@Enuo 'Bod of Dad" ?

Not a game I thought I'd ever play, but here we are...

@JustPlainLoco doesn't he basically show up in a sort of 'post-credits' scene?

Thor’s hot. Bring on the Thor x Kratos fan ahem “art”…

Thor will be no pushover. Going by the mythology, he's stronger than any of the Greek Gods.

"Thor in God of War: Ragnarok"

Now I want to see the God of War in Thor: Ragnarok!!

Lol did people really expect a Chris Hemsworth look a like.

The MCU has opened the door for fat Thor... love it.

Marvel Fangirls will not be happy with this online.

Looks like he needs to lay off the mead a bit.

I can't talk tbh, my beer belly got grotesque during the lockdowns 😅

"You're a bit more along than I would have expected, Thor, particularly 'round the middle." -Rubeus Odin

I mean when you consider how much he eats and drinks in the Norse tales, and the fact he just has to throw his hammer and most things die, this seems like a perfectly reasonable portrayal.

Finally the perfect cosplay for me

One Belly-flop from him and Kratos would die instantly

God of War: Ragnarok - Gameplay Reveal Trailer - PlayStation Showcase 2021

God of War Ragnarok: Everything we know so far about the PS5 sequel

GamesRadar+ 10 September, 2021 - 06:18pm

God of War Ragnarok has a giant new trailer

The trailer gave us plenty of new details about the game, including new characters and plenty of potential plot points to mull over. For all that information, the release date, and everything else we know, keep reading. 

God of War 2 made its debut at last year's PS5 showcase with a brief and cryptic teaser trailer. We don't actually see any footage of the game; just a Norse symbol and the confirmation that "Ragnarok is coming." You can also hear Kratos in the background warning Atreus as well as us unsuspecting viewers that we "must prepare" ourselves.

Sony Santa Monica and PlayStation Studios recently announced that God of War 2 has been delayed to 2022. As mentioned earlier, this wasn't a huge surprise. The fact that we haven't seen any gameplay, cinematics, story details, or even a proper trailer halfway into 2021 meant a delay was inevitable.

No, God of War 2 isn't a PS5 exclusive, but it is PlayStation exclusive. In an interview on the PlayStation Blog, PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst confirmed that the next God of War game is releasing on PS4 as well as PS5, making it a cross-gen release.

"Where it makes sense to develop a title for both PS4 and PS5 — for Horizon Forbidden West, the next God of War, GT7 — we’ll continue looking at that," Hulst said. "And if PS4 owners want to play that game, then they can. If they want to go on and play the PS5 version, that game will be there for them."

Seriously, spoilers. At the end of 2018's God of War Kratos and Atreus discover that Faye, AKA Mrs Kratos, was actually a giant called Laufey, making Atreus half god and half giant, and with another name: Loki. Yes, that Loki, the one from Norse mythology who is often portrayed as a trickster, sometimes with shapeshifting abilities. God of War played pretty fast and loose with Norse mythology but could offer some hints as to what's to come. 

Once that big revelation is out of the way, we're told Fimbulwinter is coming. If you skipped your Norse mythology class – shame on you – then know that this is a three-year 'great winter' that proceeds Ragnarok, the Norse apocalypse.

Post credits, there's a second ending when you return home and, there, Thor appears 'several years later'. It's a brief tease, ending after Kratos asks him what he wants. It could be that Thor wants revenge for that whole Kratos 'killing his sons' thing, or, he might want his help stopping Ragnarok.

At times God of War felt like a very personal project about fatherhood, and it feels very likely that a sequel would continue to explore that dynamic between Kratos and Atreus, even as both struggle to come to terms with his newfound potential. How will Kratos, so used to being the powerful protector, react now that his son could potentially be even more powerful? Could the conflict this raises between father and son somehow bring about the Ragnarok, referenced in God of War and that PS4 theme? Or will the two find a way to work together, combining their might to battle any threats that come their way? 

Whatever happens, we can be certain that there will be huge new enemies to fight, new combat techniques to master, and a huge, beating dad heart at the center of it all. We can't bloody wait. 

When the PS5 is officially available to pre-order, we'll email you with all of the best prices and bundle offers. The first wave might sell out quickly so you won't want to miss out!
