Kratos keeps his secretive past hidden from Atreus, preventing him from knowing about his divinity. In their journey, the father and the son encounter with many powerful monsters and gods of the Norse World.
God of War 5: What can we expect?
Now, with God of War moving forward with the new installations, we might see the sequels featuring Thor, Freya, and Odin. Also, the events of Ragnarok will be featured.
Thor will soon enter the game through God of War 5. This happens as we learn about the true identity of the ancestry of Atreus. We discover that Atreus is Loki, and by killing The Stranger, the main antagonist of the game, the events of Ragnarok events get a kick start. In God, if War 5, Freya, who previously was an ally, becomes an antagonist. This, we might see Thor battle against Atreus and Kartos as Odin. This will make him a big villain.
Thus, God of War 5 will lack no adventures. It will be full of thrills with action-packed combats. Also, some theories tend to believe that Kartos might die in the upcoming installment.
