God of War Concept Art Reveals Norse Mythology

The God of War franchise has to be one of Sony’s biggest exclusives, with the protagonist Kratos battling monsters and demons as he faces off against some of the biggest and badest creatures from Greek mythology. Some uncovered God Of War concept art may have revealed the next pantheon to face Kratos’s wrath, beware the Norse gods.

The concept art was uncovered by NerdLeaks who located the images on the personal website of an artist who is known to have worked at Santa Monica Studio, the development studio behind the God of War franchise, in 2015. Since the leak both NerdLeaks twitter and website have been inaccessible, but not before others had managed to grab the images for everyone to see.

With the concept art mentioning Kratos by name, it’s safe to say that it was for the game series. The image below shows sleek stone buildings, meant to represent the world of Alfheim, home of the faeries while the forests of Vanaheimr are lethal with the exception of the plants shown in the concept art, revealing several plants that could aid or assist the warrior in his journey.

Could this all be a hoax? Could it be a clever tease to gauge interest in the idea before the reveal of a new game? Who knows the answer, but with the internet seeking the answers it would seem that people want to see Kratos fight off against gods like Thor and Loki while battling giant beasts like the wolf Fenrir and even the dragon Jormugand.

You can find all the images here. What do you think? Would you like to see Kratos face off against the Norse gods or is there another pantheon that needs to face his wrath?
