God of War Ragnarok will make you cry for the first 10 minutes and it’s just not fair


Get the handkerchiefs while playing God of War Ragnarok.

God of War Ragnarok has been out for a few days now and many have been biting it as they just can’t get enough of Kratos and Atreus’ journey battling Norse gods and trying to navigate the end times. And while many rave about the game, there’s also consensus that Santa Monica Studios pulled a dirty trick on all of us in the first 10 minutes of the game as a scene unfolds that serves to absolutely crush your emotions, especially if you have a dog

***Spoiler Alert for God of War: Ragnarok***

Right after we’re reintroduced to Kratos and Atreus, we see the two being pulled onto a sled by two new wolves. Anyone who’s played God of War (2018) knows the father-son duo didn’t have any pets at any point, so they obviously picked them up in the three years between games – a later scene reveals them from attackers were rescued.

About halfway down the sleigh ride, Atreus comments that he “hopes Fenrir has gotten some sleep” and that “maybe he’ll be ready to eat when we get home”. Although we haven’t met this character yet, anyone with even a little bit of Norse history knows that Fenrir is a mythical wolf.

Unfortunately, Kratos then comments, “He’s…quite ill, Atreus.” That’s when everyone, including me, has a horrible feeling in their stomachs that only moments later turns out to be true. After a quick fight with the angry hawk lady, God of War Ragnarok features one of the saddest death scenes I’ve seen from a video game character in a long time, as we get to see Atreus offer comfort and say goodbye to his furry best friend.

Although you didn’t even know about the wolf before, you can’t help but feel the bond between Atreus and Fenrir and be saddened that he is dying of old age in the boy’s arms. While it’s definitely a mean and dirty thing for us dog owners to do that scene within the first 10 minutes of the game, it was a perfect indicator of how emotional and well told the game’s story was going to be.

This is far from the last time God of War Ragnarok has likely made you cry, so let us know what your teariest moment was in the comments section below. We’ve also linked info on the spell Atreus casts during Fenrir’s death here if you’re curious.
