One of God of War Ragnarok’s most touching scenes is a callback to the first game


That’s what we call good writing.

God of War Ragnarok has quite a few great moments, many of which carry so much emotional weight that anyone playing should have a box of tissues nearby to dry their tears. However, others are of a more subtle nature; One of them is actually a throwback to the previous part and probably one of the most touching scenes in God of War Ragnarok.

Eagle-eyed Reddit user u/stash0606 noticed a moment during Kratos’ quest to find Freya in God of War Ragnarok that depicts a scene in God of War not only in terms of dialogue but also in terms of relationship.

For the past four years, Freya had been chasing Kratos but realized that her feelings were directed at the wrong person, that everything led back to Odin. When she tries to apologize, Kratos stops her and says, “No need to explain. Not for me. Do not agree.”

During the events of God of War (2018), Kratos didn’t trust Freya, and rightly so – she was a goddess, after all. Over time, Kratos has his own revelation that Freya is an ally and was there when he needed her most. Freya repeats the exact same lines as Kratos tries to make amends.

However, it goes much deeper than a simple exchange in dialogue. Just moments before, as the spell begins to break on Freya, she has her arms outstretched in the wind. The movement is identical to that of Kratos leaving his bandages in the realm of Jotunheim. It’s a moment of clarity for both Kratos and Freya.

In other words, it’s a testament to the superb writing and attention to detail woven into God of War Ragnarok, and why the game definitely deserved its Best Narrative award at the 2022 Game Awards. One of God of War Ragnarok’s most touching scenes is a callback to the first game
