Many years have passed since Kratos took his vengeance against the Olympian gods.
Having survived his final encounter with Zeus, Kratos now lives with his son Atreus in the world of the Norse gods, a land inhabited by many fearsome monsters and warriors.
In order to teach his son how to survive in such a world, Kratos must master the rage that has driven him for many years and embrace his newfound role as a single father and mentor.
Kratos must also contend with the Norse gods themselves as they are taking precautions against him, due to them being aware of his role in the destruction of Olympus.
Over the course of time, Atreus learns more about his father’s complicated and shady past, while struggling with whether to be like his father or choose to be his own person.
