Kratos returns in God of War 4, which reportedly features a Norse mythology setting.
The concept art is said to have been sourced from an artist’s website. The unnamed artist worked at the game at developer Sony Santa Monica last year.
The concept images clearly show a Norse setting for the game, with references to Land of the Fairies and other Norse mythology concepts. Kratos also appears to have grown a beard, and now carries an axe.
Industry insider Shinobi602 revealed the Norse setting for the game on Twitter, prior to NerdLeaks’ report.
