Stig Asmussen: What really happens to Kratos at the end of God of War 3

Most of us have been wondering what really happened to Kratos at the end of God of War 3. The interview with Stig from the French official PlayStation magazine tells us about it.

Spoiler alert!!!!

It's left on a cliffhanger like every other GOW game.... Hopefully we will see Kratos another time in another GOW game.

@Below:I thought 1 ending itself couldn't be explored further and was it, but look how they returned with 2 making it even more compelling.. So I expect the same in the future. SM really doesn't know what to do AT THE MOMENT and they don't want to let go of such an epic IP (which is understandable) so I don't blame them ending it like the way it did. It ended the trilogy, but opened more prospect for the future... Let your imagination run wild :)

I believe most of us don't want to see the end of Kratos... however, GoW3 does really close the trilogy. GoW4 might not feature Kratos (as a main character indeed).

lociefer2907d ago

would it kill them to make the epilogue with a *conclusive* ending

beardpapa2907d ago

I don't remember the ending well. It's been two weeks probably since I last played. But in the end before the camera shifts to the ocean, you see a trail of blood leading to the edge [of the cliff]. I'm assuming this is Krato's blood. Did he crawl away to fall off? Also, what appears to be a symbol of a bird or eagle where the blood is. Does that represent Zeus?

Anyway, it'd be interesting if anyone can piece together what the two means since the camera shifts from that bird-like engraving following the blood trail than pans to the ocean. It must be important if they directed the camera to pan in those ways.

if you played GOW3 and finished the game the behind since clips movies well unlocked
stig him self in one of those say that he is not finished with GOW but he is putting the series to rest for now
and sure well come back to it later on
now all of you remember this, the end of the trilogy
dose NOT mean the end of GOW series

Danteh2907d ago (Edited 2907d ago )

What I didn't like about this GOW was actually the "sentimental" story, all that Pandora and hope sh!t.

When I played GOW I or II, one of the aspects that I liked was the 1-dimensional personality of Kratos. He was always angry, furious,and that's it, you knew that whenever you found a new character, he was ALWAYS going to die :P

I found that quite hilarious and thought that in a way it defined the franchise..... so hearing Kratos say "Pa-pandoraaaa, noooooooooooooo", dunno, didnt feel right

Apart from that yeah the gameplay is vastly improved and the graphix.... well :D

topdawg1222907d ago

They should start a new story in the same world, but with a new main character. Then at the end you confront the destroyer of Gods as the last boss..... Kratos!

badz1492907d ago

but the end definitely intended to open path for a new game in the series! don't know if we'll ever see Kratos again though

jessupj2907d ago (Edited 2907d ago )

If you payed attention to the cut scenes during the game I think it's more then likely Kratos' brother will star in the next game and it will basically ential his revenge on Kratos. Now that Hades is dead he'll have the strength to escape the underworld.

The thing that gives it away the most is after you've impaled Zeus and Kratos is transported to this dark dream world. After you fall in the water voices from Kratos' past can be heard. Most of the voices are from characters in the game, but there was one that stood out. It was Kratos' brother and he said "brother! don't leave me again! arrrhh!". Well it was along those lines anyway. Go back to the game and pay close attention at that part.

Delive2907d ago

became the new ruler of Hades and came and got Kratos to extract revenge, only to have you play as Kratos and escape this new Hades and defeat your brother.

beardpapa2906d ago

well yea... great if his brother becomes the next character...

But [all] the gods are dead. If not possibly mortal. Without Zeus is the end of them all according to Athena in GoW2. It'd be interesting to see the other gods, Artemis has to be alive since the moon was up, what about Apollo? I never finished up COO so I don't know if they're already kaput.

And even if his brother becomes the next character, exactly what "revenge" are you talking about? From my interpretation, that 'fear' world Kratos was in allowed him to forgive himself.

It has to be something else. And the phoenix that MariusElijah kindly identified. That has to mean something. It'd be silly if Santa Monica & Friends put that there for decoration purposes.

Redrum0592906d ago

i wanna kill that hoe Athena, he better still be alive

starvinbull2906d ago

If there are no gods and no Kratos then surely they should let it rest.

The whole point of the game is that Kratos finally gives up his quest and decides not to continue killing beyond Zeus's death.

To bring him back now would reek of cash in.

So wait, this guy interviewed one insider and the insider said that he doesn't know. Wow, this is news.

Well, there's your answer right there! There will be another GoW game but they're still trying to decide on what to do with the story after (or before?) the trilogy. I think it'll be about the story of a new character instead of Kratos.

cayal2907d ago

Atlantis would be awesome.

They wanted to use Atlantis but it was cut from God of War 2. It is definitely possible that Atlantis could be used as a full game.

NateNater2907d ago

Thats a good idea. Even PSLS brought that up.


lokiroo4202907d ago

I can see Kratos returning only to be avenged by his own son, in another era in time, middle ages,Roman, modern.

Kratos Spartan2907d ago

Kratos has killed the Gods, handed some titans their asses, caved in Hercules face and destroyed the Sisters of Fate. You simply cannot get more badass than that. Period. His son better bring the pain hardcore to the brain...

lokiroo4202907d ago

Kratos has been known to mingle with the ladies, he has to have a son, and if kratos returns, his son will be his undoing like cronos and zeus.

Kratos Spartan2907d ago

It's just hard to imagine someone taking Kratos down, is it not? Even if it was his own son.

rucky2907d ago

Shouldn't he have had bore a child with Aphrodite? I mean that could be the whole point of their scene.

He didn't really answer anything XD

NateNater2907d ago

That's because he's not entirely sure about anything yet
