God of War Ragnarok will let you equip Kratos with different shields and varying abilities.
On speaking with Youtuber Jon Ford, the game director Eric Willaims revealed that there’ll be a fair few shields for Kratos to find and unlock in the sequel. “I don’t want to go too deep on it, but yes, there are different shields, and they have different defensive options and abilities,” said Williams.
“The reason we’re doing this is we really want to open up expressive choice to the way that you build your Kratos, like the equipment and loadout and things like that, the director continued.
Ragnarok will spell the end of the Norse saga for Kratos and Atreus. Former God of War director Cory Barlog revealed that Sony Santa Monica is wrapping up the overarching story of the current saga simply because development takes too long. Barlog stated that if every God of War game took five years to make, then a trilogy wouldn’t be completed for 15 years. That, Barlog thinks, is a bit too long.
