‘God of War: Ragnarok’ to be inspired by ‘The Last of Us 2’!

If you remember the gameplay of The Last of Us 2 from last year, something similar might arrive in God of War: Ragnarok as well!

The Naughty Dog sequel had the option of playing as Abby, along with Ellie. And God of War: Ragnarok might provide the same opportunity for Atreus, the son of Kratos.

‘God of War: Ragnarok’ and ‘The Last of Us 2’ connection

Many people might not be knowing this, but the first God of War (2018) was highly inspired by The Last of Us.

Recently, Santa Monica concept artist Samuel Matthews spoke on the God of War podcast. And he revealed that the team is heavily inspired by The Last of Us 2 when it comes to taking story ideas.

He said that players would take control of Atreus this time, just like Ellie and Abby from TLOU2.

It implies that God of War: Ragnarok will give you two main playable characters. First is Kratos, of course, and the other one will be his son Atreus.

Speaking of how The Last of Us 2 inspires it, the Naughty Dog’s first part mainly had Joel as a playable character.

But the second installment made Ellie a central part and gave a chance to be Abby.

Samuel Matthews also said that Santa Monica would look up to TLOU2 for Ragnarok‘s gameplay.

It will be interesting to see how fans react to Atreus becoming a playable option along with his father. Because The Last of Us 2 did receive criticism doing this kind of experiment regarding Abby, apart from Ellie.
