God of War 2: Ragnarök: That’s why the huge wolf from the new trailer isn’t as mean as it looks
God of War Ragnarok – New trailer teases first boss
God of War 2: Ragnarök not only finally got a release date, but also a short new trailer. You can see it here above these lines. It also features a giant wolf that could be your first look at a boss. But if we take a closer look at the history of God of War (2018) and Norse mythology, it seems rather unlikely. Rather, it could be that the wolf Fenrir is an ally of Kratos and Atreus.
God of War 2 trailer might not be teasing a boss, it’s teasing a friend
Fenrir is probably a friend: Chances are that Fenrir won’t have a boss to fight. Instead, the giant wolf seen in the trailer is more likely to be a helpful ally, standing by Kratos and Atreus during the Twilight of the Gods and the end of the world called Ragnarök.
Why should that be? The answer lies in the story of God of War, especially its ending.
So if you haven’t played the mega blockbuster from 2018 yet, do so right now. Otherwise, you can of course continue reading, but we have warned you.
At the end of the predecessor of God of War 2: Ragnarök it turns out that Kratos’ son Atreus is actually Loki. We don’t only know him since the Marvel series, but of course he originally comes from Norse mythology.
However is Loki there related to Fenrir, the giant wolf. Even more: Fenrir is actually the son of Loki aka Atreus. Exactly us Jörmungandr, the world serpent from the first God of War. And just as with the giant serpent, this should mean that Atreus and Fenrir will not be at each other’s throats, but will tend to work together.
Same trick as part 1? It also fits in very well that the giant serpent Jörmungandr was presented in a God of War trailer in a very similar way to how Fenrir is now. At the time the trailer was released, it was also not clear whether the giant snake was an enemy or a friend. As we now know, it was the latter and that could mean Fenrir is the same way.
