God of War Ragnarok’s Valhalla DLC calls back to Faye’s final prophecy in a subtle way.
The conclusion of the Valhalla DLC for God of War Ragnarok subtly alludes to Faye’s ultimate prophecy, portraying a revered Kratos, a glimpse of which was hinted at the conclusion of the main game.
While many fans anticipated a follow-up to Ragnarok focusing on Atreus venturing into different realms and searching for the remaining Giants, the recently unveiled free expansion, Valhalla, takes a different direction. It centers on Kratos grappling with his newfound role in the world and striving to embody the destiny of becoming the God foretold in Faye’s vision.
The God envisioned in the prophecy contrasts sharply with the wrathful and feared God of War we have known throughout the series. After bidding farewell to Atreus, Kratos witnesses Faye’s final prophecy, depicting him being worshipped and loved. This poignant revelation brings tears to Kratos’s eyes as he contemplates the kind of deity he is destined to become in the eyes of the Norse people.
Despite Valhalla serving as an epilogue to Ragnarok, showcasing Kratos continuing his journey, it appears that he is already progressing towards fulfilling Faye’s prophesied role. A keen observation by Twitter user Mojica_Rosas reveals a subtle reference to the original conclusion of Ragnarok in the concluding scene of the Valhalla DLC, portraying Kratos in the manner depicted in the mural.
Upon completing Valhalla, players are treated to a cutscene where Kratos confronts his Greek self and declares himself the “God of Hope.” In the post-credits scene, Kratos exits Valhalla, exuding a sense of completeness and inner peace. Notably, he carries his axe on his shoulder, a deliberate nod to the way he was depicted in Faye’s mural.
While some might initially dismiss this as coincidental, the intentional recreation of the prophecy’s moment suggests a thoughtful choice by the developers. It signifies that Kratos is indeed aligning with Faye’s visions and evolving into the beloved figure destined in the prophecy.
