Why and how Kratos went to Midgard in God of War
How did Kratos get to Midgard?
In God of War (2018) Kratos made it to Midgard by using the Bifrost, a magical bridge that allows travel between the Nine Realms of Norse mythology. He was accompanied by his son Atreus, who was knowledgeable about the Nine Realms and served as their guide.
Prior to their journey, Kratos and Atreus had been living in isolation in the Norse realm of Midgard, after the death of Kratos’ wife and Atreus’ mother. However, they were forced to leave their home when they learned that Atreus had a part-god heritage and was being targeted by gods and other powerful beings who sought to use his powers for their own purposes.
Using the Bifrost, Kratos and Atreus traveled to Midgard and encountered various challenges and enemies along the way. They also learned more about the mythology and history of the Norse gods and their own family history.
Why did Kratos go to Midgard?
Kratos and Atreus sought to fulfill the final wish of Kratos’ wife by scattering her ashes at the highest peak in all the realms. To do this, they needed to travel to various realms, including Midgard, and retrieve necessary items and information. Eventually, they were able to fulfill their quest and scatter the ashes of Kratos’ wife at the highest peak in all the realms.
Kratos’ journey to Midgard also allowed him to confront his troubled past, which was filled with violence and tragedy. As a former Greek god, Kratos had a history of causing destruction and was seeking redemption for his past actions. His journey in Midgard allowed him to confront his demons and learn more about his own family history, ultimately leading him towards a path of redemption and healing.
