What God of War 4 reveals about the next part
After Kratos and Atreus have scattered the ashes of Faye on the summit in Jötunheim, the credits actually start and the player is then free to explore the world further. If he goes back to the house in the wild forest and interacts with the beds there, then starts a cutscenethat takes place "years later". Kratos and Atreus are woken up by a thunderstorm when they step in front of the house, they see a hooded man around whom the lightning flashes and who carries a well-known hammer at his side. It's Thor, of course.
After a fade to black, it becomes clear that it was just an Atreus dream or much more a vision. It already began in God of War 4 Fimbulwinter, an ice age that is seen as one of four portents of the apocalypse.
Through their actions, Kratos and Atreus triggered the fall of the gods prematurely, with the consequences of this they now have to deal with the next part.
