The 2018 continuation/reboot of God of War received acclaim from almost all who played it. It is so beloved that it even received a behind-the-scenes documentary. And though its gameplay was incredibly satisfying, its story emotional, and its graphics jaw-dropping, there was one question lingering in my mind. How did Kratos get from the world of Greek mythology to one where Norse Gods reigned? If you’re like me, you’re in luck. Dark Horse has officially announced an upcoming comic series that will bridge the gap between 2010’s God of War III and the 2018 title.
Revealed by Comicbook.com, the series will be titled God of War: Fallen God. It will follow Kratos after his victory over the Greek pantheon as he attempts to move forward with his life. But his past, and more importantly his rage, will not be so easily abandoned. You can check out the official description for the series below.
God of War: Fallen God follows Kratos after conquering Zeus and thwarting Athena. Believing himself to be finally free of his bondage, he sets sail for the desert in an attempt to distance himself from his home and his shame only to find his rage and guilt follow close behind. Kratos rages against the one foe that has proven to be unconquerable—himself. But a war against oneself is unwinnable, and only invites madness.”
God of War: Fallen God reunites writer Chris Roberson (iZombie), artist Tony Parker (This Damned Band), and colorist Dan Jackson (Dark Horse’s Aliens series). They also previously worked on a limited series based on Sony Santa Monica’s 2018 hit. But that series took place shortly before the main game and includes Kratos’ son, Atreus. There’s no word yet on how long Fallen God will run for. But fans will be able to pick up #1 on June 24th.
