Is Kratos Odin?
So, I just read this gamespot interview, where they say it's not viking age, but the time when the gods walked on earth:
"In the viking era, they always talked about, 'The gods have abandoned us.' Thor and Loki and Odin all walked the Earth at one point, but they're not around any more. [The vikings] fight for them, but they're not there. This idea that we're at is saying, 'We're at a prehisory point, where gods did walk the Earth, when monsters were real, before they became extinct.'
In my mind, this imediatly linked with this new, less fury lead Kratos, that I don't see fighting gods with no good reason. So, what if instead of fighting new gods, he faced the threats and monsters that are present in the land and becomes venerated by men? His son fits in the role of future Thor as well. And the devs are going to make their own image of the norse mythology, so everything is possible:
"It's a fun space to be in because it allows us to paint our own image of Norse mythology as opposed to anyone else's"
And don't forget the summon axe trick. It can't be a coincidence that he knows how to do it.
What do you guys think? In my opinion it would be a nice twist, and create room for more God of War.
