Mark Simon from Santa Monico conceded us an interview and said that a fight between "Kratos against Odin would be weird".
so why would you want Kratos to fight Odin? I know they got Valkyries, so....
"Sometimes the fans think that there are few things we can do, because Kratos killed all the gods". Judge Dredd had the same problem, all the bad guys end up dead so he couldn't have a recurring nemesis
Kratos is going to have to take a vacation and they need to introduce a new pissed off hero to tackle the Norse Mythology. It would make the most sense and refresh the series. This new Viking warrior would want to challenge Odin for what ever reason, but doesn't think you can kill a god. Then news arrives of a warrior from a far away land named Kratos, that challenged his gods and was able to defeat them. With this knowlege the new warrior is inspired to take up a quest to bring down Odin ect.
and maybe eventually. they meet. and theres a mini crossover. co-op moment.
@SleazyChimp Well, that might work somehow. Imagine Kratos is nowhere to be found. This Viking Warrior would seek his aid or some type of mentorship. Why not make kratos an NPC for instance. Someone who aids the Viking but doesnt have a quarrel with hos gods. The Norse gods, angry at Kratos for helping the Viking warrior, turn their attention to him. Second half of the game! BAM! Kratos is back. Kinda like a MGS2 twist.
Well Kratos has no quarrel with Odin and friends.He was only angry at Zeus and the Pantheon because of the horrible way they treated him. Odin would have to have done something just as bad to Kratos for him to want to kill him.
that can be done! just another cgi sequence where kratos has married again and odin forces him to kill his new wife and kid or his brother or any other family if he has...!
kratos already killed his brother... willingly
Actually,Kratos isn't the one who killed him, just buried him.
David Jaffe's original version of GoW3 would have put you against Odin. The whole game was supposed to be a battle against other gods looking to take Zeus' newly-vacated throne, since it was planned for you to kill Zeus right in the beginning. You would have fought against Norse, Egyptian, etc., as they came forward to take his place. It was to explain why old gods are disregarded as myth in modern times. Because Kratos killed them all.
They ruined the best secret they had with a psp game. Kratos brother that raised in hades. From the original games extras his brother was some like dark angel that hated him etc. what better opponent then his brother?.....even though at the end of 3 you hear his voice they still made up in GOS so I doubt it.
you do realize that zeus is greek right? odin is Norse myth god and egyptian is no where near greeks,these are gods in different cultures,you cant just take all the known gods and think thats a great idee for new gow,man your thick.
That wasn't Megatons idea it was David Jaffe's and I think it would be cool to see Kratos Kill other Gods.
My thick what? The whole point was that gods from other cultures came forwards to replace Zeus as god of the gods. The creator of GoW, David Jaffe, wrote the 3rd game to play out like that. Not me. Man, you're thick.
Well, what ever direction Kratos goes in I just hope Stig is back at the helm.
no. cory barlog was the best director.
Well, I think GOW3 speaks for it self of which Stig Asmussen was the lead director.
KRATOS VS BHUDDA. FF CHARACHTERS VS KRATOS LOL U NO KRATOS CANT WAIT HIS TURN LOL
Kill Odin, murder Thor, annihilate Valhalla...not weird at all, Kratos can do that:) Freya features the sexscene, couple of unicorns, there you go.
I agree with him. The Norse mythology didn't come into existence until thousands of years after the existence of Greek mythology. Could it still happen? Perhaps, but I wouldn't be surprised if they don't go this route.
*****SPOILER*****That may have been why he "died" at the end. They could go with he spends 1000 years in hell blah blah blah. Or he lives at the end but is human again because of the sword and goes in search of power. Who knows but whatever it is on the ps4 it'll be amazing.
***SPOILER*** He didn't "die", in-fact we dont know what happened him.
@slyfamous02: that was the point of the quotation around "died" and me listing two possible ways they could continue the story. One where he lived and the other where he's dead.
I would like to play as a human kratos, and at the end of the game he doesn't pleed to ares. He gets pummeled.
Retire Kratos for a while, and I'd prefer Egyptian or maybe Chinese mythology.
Chinese mythology is more likely about dragons and i approve that!
I think they should make a whole new character. This time do one with Norse mythology. A Norse Kratos type character would be sweet. I love Norse mythology.
It'd only be weird because Kratos would die before the battle begun thus making the game impossible to beat.
no odin. falls in odinsleep. and kratos takes him out that way. , and as for "titan" fights. thats what the frost giants are there for. you ever watched "hulk vs. thor" the giants are huge in that movie
Odin Sleep is just Marvel comics stuff. Not Norse myth. And Kratos could not lift Thor's hammer much less use it. Even Thor needed a special belt and gloves to use it.
guys in case you dont know, all european gods are the same (that includes the egyptian and indian gods since they were european in the first place), they just happen to have diferent names and stories because the europeans scattered across the continent and the mythos evolved/changed with them. so kiling thor or odin would be stupid because he already killed his greek counterparts. search for proto-indoeuropean mythology and you will see.
"Sometimes the fans think that there are few things we can do, because the" Kratos killed all the gods, "we always hear that. But there are many opportunities for us and the world that fits, so that we are not thinking about it. " Yeah but when Kratos has to start killing half naked giant chicks with bug parts as the main enemy I think we might consider that scraping the bottom of the barrel. There's other huge figures within different mythologies and plenty Gods of War for Kratos to end their Reign. And maybe you don't want Kratos...David Jaffe has said he imagined him as a bringer of death into other mythological pantheons. Perhaps you can have it so he is reborn into another culture...new name..new backstory but same vengeful man repeating similar sins to Kratos. But it could work with Kratos honestly..he's the face of GoW and he could easily bring his hate into other countries. I'd sooooo much rather take on well known figures from other mythologies than the very used up Greek mythology. The Furies seem boring. Sorry they were a lame addition. I'll still kill em but it'd be sick to smash Odin's One-eyed head to pieces with Mjolnir.
