With fresh gameplay shown at the PlayStation Showcase, God of War: Ragnarok is showing some much needed diversity. Of course, some corners of the internet aren’t happy about it.
The game will follow the 2018 PS4 title set in the world of Norse mythology. As the second and final part of the story, Ragnarok is set to include some of the more commonly known gods from mythology like Odin and Freya. That also includes Thor.
Now, contrary to popular belief, Thor is not a buff and impossibly good looking Avenger. Thor is the god of thunder. He has great strength. He’s quick tempered. He’s almost always portrayed with long red hair and a beard. And he loves a drink. It’s this depiction of the character that the Sony Santa Monica team are basing their version of Thor on, though likely with a few twists.
