After an exciting fight against Poseidon and a failed attempt on Zeus’ life, Kratos falls off the mountain and plummets into the Underworld.

After playing through the seven previous games in the series, including two PSP titles and one mobile game, you’ll realize that Kratos had a long and tragic existence. The guy we meet here has found love, a family, and a big bushy beard in this realm of Norse mythology, despite the fact that he has a long and storied past. In order to go about this unfamiliar land, he must depend on his kid, whom he hardly knows, to comprehend its languages and help him out when he can’t get the job done with an axe or the imprint of his foot on an enemy. Early in development, it was suggested that Atreus be cut, or his role significantly reduced because of the many developmental challenges and their costs.
Barlog said that during gameplay, Atreus would be “like magic, an additional combat resource, and training him and teaching him.” The developers said Atreus would not be a burden during gameplay. The team experimented with several different approaches for Atreus to ensure he was an empowering presence.

Their goal was for Atreus to enhance Kratos’ capabilities without becoming a liability. This resulted in the developers having Atreus act freely unless the player uses a button to issue specific commands to him.
