God Of War Ragnarok Easter Eggs You Might Miss!

God Of War Ragnarok Easter Eggs – During the blistering cold, in the middle of the winter night, you hear the sound of thunder. But then the thunder got louder and louder as if it was approaching with bad intentions. You open the door and then you see a figure in the middle of the snow, a tall yet bulky man holstering a hammer on his waist. Wait a minute, is that Thor the god of thunder?

That’s pretty much what we all see from the God of War Ragnarok trailer back in 2021. Fast forward a year later and now we have the PS5 and God of War Ragnarok have been around for a month. 

We join Kratos and Atreus on their journey through the Nine Realms. The game itself is as good if not better than the first God of War sequel on the PS4. For old-timers, it’s should be no surprise that the game itself is full of easter eggs to discover.

In God of War: Ragnarok, the developer did a great job combining Kratos’ past and other Playstation legacy with in-game objects. This in turn creates some of the best God of War easter eggs. 

God of War Ragnarok Easter Eggs

Some of the Easter Eggs they hide in this game are pretty obvious to those with keen eyes. However, there’s a good chance that you might miss some of them entirely. That’s why we have compiled a list of God of War Ragnarok easter eggs you might not know. 

Kvasir’s poetry books

Along the journey of Kratos and Atreus through the Nine Realms, you can find all sorts of collectibles all over the place. One of the precious collectibles you can find is Kvasir’s poems. It is a set of poetry books that were written by a long-lost author.

Without further investigation, these poetry books look like they’re just another item that has to do with the God of War lore. But if you look closely, you will find that these poems are actually references to other iconic Playstation-exclusives game titles. As you pick it up, you should notice that the front covers feature a drawing of popular Playstation titles. 

Once you collect all of Kvasir’s poems, make sure you take some time to visit Sindri’s house. There you should find all of the poems that you collect on a display with the covers in perfect view. 

The game composer as a game character

God Of War Ragnarok Easter Eggs Bear McCreary

During your adventure around Svartalfheim or the land of dwarves, you should see a lot of, guess what, dwarves. From the many dwarves you see here, you should encounter one that appears to be a musician. He then introduced himself as Ræb. 

He will appear to be playing a son at a local tavern. When you encounter Raeb, he will help guide you with your main mission. He is also the first NPC that provides you with a side mission to partake in. 

Here is the fun part, Raeb is actually a real person. Yes, he is not just some well-known Nord myth, he’s a living breathing male human from Florida. 

Introducing Bear (Raeb) McCreary. Bear is a famous and well-known composer of many movies and games, including God of War Ragnarok. As a way to honor Bear, GoW developers decided to include Bear to be a musician in the game itself.

Kratos and his history with the boat captain

God Of War Ragnarok Easter Eggs boat captain

This easter egg includes the activity of reading Kratos’s journal along the journey. So it’s very recommended for you to take a step back and just read what Kratos thinks of the whole adventure and indulge yourself in the story even further.

Now the journal is a great way into Kratos’s thoughts. At one point in the game, you should encounter a boat captain on Lyngbakr island. Does the boat captain event ring any bell for you? If you are a loyal GoW fanbase, the boat captain event should feel familiar as it’s a recurring joke on the franchise. 

The boat captain has been present or at least referenced in over 6 titles in the GoW series. It all started in the first game as Kratos let a boat captain fall into the belly of the dead Hydra. It’s a great character arc to see as now Kratos has finally realized how he wronged that boat captain.

Where’s the real Tyr?

Where is the real tyr

Now I have saved the best for the last in this list of God of War Ragnarok easter eggs. Huge disclaimer! as this last easter egg on the list contains a heavy spoiler from the game storyline so heads up.

During the main campaign, Kratos and Atreus are on their journey to find help in defeating the Nord gods. They then seek out help from Nord’s version of God of War, Tyr, and free him from his chains.

Later on in the game, we find out that the Tyr we’ve freed was not Tyr at all. In fact, it was Odin in disguise, killing Brok and then escape away. However, what if I told you that you can find the real Tyrn after the end of the campaign? 

After the game ends, players are given the ability to roam around the Nine realms. If you go to Niflheim, you can find Tyr in a secret prison, still in chains. Once he is free, you can find him wandering throughout all of the other realms. When you encounter him once or twice, he’ll talk to you and provide you with some of his wisdom.
