To share :
God of War Ragnarok is a work of intricate storyline and lore, and months after its release, juicy new details continue to emerge. So to speak, one of the biggest twists in the game is being talked about today, with details about it that some players have just spotted.
If you haven’t finished God of War Ragnarok and you want to avoid any spoilers, we strongly advise you not to read the following lines and to close this window. Take it for granted!
The story of God of War Ragnarok is based on multiple rather deep themes: from confidence to independence through redemption, parenthood or violence itself, the game of Santa Monica is certainly a clever work that will pale to some. To support his words, the scenario thus offers multiple sometimes incredible scenes, including a major reversal of the situation towards the end of the adventure: Týr, the giant whom we came to free from his prison at the start of our journey and who accompanied us throughout, is in fact Odin, the main antagonist of the Game.
A sacred revelation that even leads to the death of a beloved character and which only increases the resentment of Kratos and Atreus – and the player himself – towards the Father of all Fathers, definitely the manipulator described by Mimir and Freya. Imagine that many clues indicated, very early in the game, this reversal of the situation as Eric Williams, director of God of War Ragnarok, announces to us.
Focus on the small details
As advanced by IGN, it was during an interview that Eric Williams allowed himself to make some crisp revelations. “I finally saw someone make the remark the other night”says the game director. “When Odin, disguised as Týr, speaks, there is no accent on the ‘y’ in the captions”.
In other words, it says “Tyr” and not “Týr” in the caption every time the character starts speaking. You may know it, but it is possible after the end of the game to free the real Týr in a well-hidden prison: during its few lines of dialogue, the subtitles display “Týr” with accent, not “Tyr” as when Odin took on his appearance.
Watch out for crows
Still other clues have been revealed by Eric Williams. When Kratos and Atreus release Tyr (Odin, therefore) at the start of the game, crow feathers can be seen in a corner of the cell. In reference to the famous corbins of Odinsure.
Likewise, the false Týr calls at a time Freya “Frigg”which is none other than the nickname Odin gave to Freya after their marriage. A denomination that she hates more than anything, proving the Machiavellianism of God to rub the knife in the wound of his ex-wife, even in disguise.
A few weeks ago, Williams also revealed another rather nice easter-egg: just before going to free Tyr in Svartalfheim, Kratos and Atreus are spat on by a dwarf, while passing under a boat bridge. A dwarf who, when you look closely, is none other than Odin himself, present from the start and watching his enemies carefully while playing them under their noses.
