It was a lot more or a lot less envisioned that it was about time for Sony to exhibit off some considerable footage from PS5’s approaching God of War sequel, now formally identified as God Of War Ragnarok, during its showcase yesterday. Though we nevertheless do not know a day for it (previous we listened to was 2022, but who is aware) it does glimpse really significantly along, and the trailer was A) far more of God of War 1 and B) that’s really all everyone would like because God of War 1 was so fantastic.
But what caught the eye of supporters was some thing that debuted just after the clearly show, official artwork of Thor, who is only glimpsed and briefly read in the trailer. But when you zoom out and see him in entire, he’s just wonderful:
It’s a variation of Thor that skews closer to the unique Norse mythology, alternatively than the commercialized edition we’ve noticed of him throughout fifty percent a dozen Marvel videos now, performed by Australian hunk Chris Hemsworth, who looks to get extra jacked and beautiful with each movie.
Except for that a single time.
But this model of Thor reminds me far more of a taller edition of Gimli from Lord of the Rings, League of Legends keg-throwing (and keg-formed) Gragas or just a rounder model of the actor who performs him, Sons of Anarchy’s Ryan Hurst.
The web has come to be obsessed with Big Thor at any time considering the fact that his entire frame was uncovered, and the praise won’t prevent rolling in.
It’s not just that Thor appears to be different, it is that he’s an genuine antagonist, alongside Freya, who turned towards us at the stop of the very last activity. Odin is around far too, even though he’s not detailed together with the other two as villains. And as we know, Loki is Kratos’ son in this universe, and we’ve definitely thrown a wrench into the mythology here in that feeling. In a video game about a guy who routinely kills a good deal of gods, it need to be no true shock that Thor is exhibiting up as a negative male.
It also really should be observed that it appeared like Sony Santa Monica was declaring that the God of War Norse saga would end with God of War Ragnarok, and there would not be a 3rd activity established there. There are obviously several realms and several other spiritual realms Kratos could journey to, nevertheless I would not assume to at any time get the Kratos versus Jesus showdown we need to have to see. But I do enjoy them wrapping issues up alternatively than possessing Kratos slaughter every one figure in Norse mythology like he did to the Greeks, which grew to become a minimal absurd immediately after a position.
In any circumstance, when Ragnarok will get right here, it will be a large strike, and I simply cannot wait around to take on Significant Thor in person.
