God of War Ragnarok News: ACCORDING TO THEIR CONCEPTUAL ARTIST, THEY WOULD BE TAKING INFLUENCE OF THE POLEMIC SEQUEL
Recently, Samuel Matthews, the concept artist for God of War Ragnarok mentioned in a podcast that they are taking great inspiration from The Last of Us Part 2 for the development of the video game. This would affect the decisions they will make regarding gameplay and story:
As we know, the new God of War: Ragnarok will be set in Norse mythology. And, unlike the previous installment, not only will we play as Kratos, but Atreus could become a completely independent character. This element could be one of the most important in the new installment.
WHAT COULD GOD OF WARK: RAGNAROK RETURN FROM THE LAST OF US 2?
As we already know, the last video game was a soft reboot that rethought many of the mechanics for Kratos, eventually changing to a new genre. The relationship between the protagonists of God of War: Ragnarok and its mechanics are very similar to that of Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us. And, although we have little information regarding the new installment, we may have some clues.
We already know that the independence to play with Atreus or Kratos will deepen. So, if we follow the line proposed by The Last of Us 2, we could get to control more characters. Depending on the development and decisions we make, there could be changes in the gameplay and in the story.
Let’s just hope we don’t have to say goodbye to Kratos in this new installment.
