Fight to defend the Nine Realms.

Atreus seeks to further understand the clues left behind by his mother and piece together his prophesied role in the coming war. Meanwhile, Kratos struggles with his son’s desire to uncover more about his identity, knowing it will draw them towards the vengeful Aesir. If that happens, they’ll be even closer to repeating the bloody mistakes of the past.
