Final God Of War Easter Egg Discovered In Very Obvious Place (SPOILERS)
As many players are likely aware, this year’s God of War is filled to the brim and beyond with Easter eggs and references, many of which spoil the game’s biggest reveals ahead of time. Inquisitive minds from around the internet have been pouring over Kratos and Atreus’ massive adventure, hoping to uncover every last hidden secret put in place by developers. Game director Cory Barlog previously teased the presence of at least one remaining Easter egg, but now it seems the internet has finally cracked the mystery. (Spoilers ahead)
“It’s always in the last place you’d expect,” said everyone’s parents ever. This advice also came true in the search for God of War‘s final secret, only in this case, the prize was located somewhere many considered too obvious to look. Located inside Kratos’ own house lies a number of interesting items and wall-scribbled runes, but fans have unexpectedly discovered a set of four Old Norse letters that undoubtedly reference Atreus’ spoilery alternate identity: Loki.
The whereabouts of this long-sought secret arrived after this weekend’s Comic Con, when Cory Barlog himself hinted at the location of Kratos’ home. Hardly a coincidence, it would seem this not-so-hidden message is the final Easter egg fans have been searching for. Confirming as such was God of War concept artist Joe Kennedy, who congratulated the collective of inquisitive fans on the r/GodofWar subreddit.
As Atreus’ shared name with the Norse god of mischief was already revealed in God of War‘s campaign, this news is likely not the big revelation some fans were expecting. Regardless, many rune-translating Redditors have shown appreciation for checking off this last box, as it represents an admittedly cool fan-driven accomplishment for an already awesome game. God of War is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.
