How To Unlock God Of War’s Secret Ending

Spoiler warning for God of War’s ending in this article!

God of War has one of the most brilliant stories with a super satisfying conclusion, but did you know that there’s a secret ending?

Completing the main story of God of War is a magical experience. After all the trials and tribulations that the realms have put you through, Kratos finally gets to spread his wife’s ashes atop a peak in Jotunheim. What follows is the revelation that Atreus is actually a young version of the Norse god Loki. What’s more, Ragnarok is teased to be on its way with heavy snowfall upon return to Midgard.

It’s here that the credits will roll, and you can choose to end your journey there. Alternatively, you can go about completing the rest of the side content that God of War has to offer. However, there’s also a third option – you can unlock a secret cutscene that teases the events of God of War Ragnarok.

God of War – Secret Ending

Once you return to Midgard from Jotunheim, you’ll hear Brok and Sindri make comments about how you should make your way home for some deserved rest. To see the secret ending, that’s exactly what you need to do. Head back to Kratos’s humble wooden shack in the Frozen Woods and enter the hut. Kratos and Atreus will settle into their beds for the long winter.

A black screen will then appear indicating a significant passage of time. The two are awoken in the middle of an almighty lightning storm. Kratos rushes to the door with Atreus not far behind him. Standing out in the open is a sturdy hooded figure, surrounded in lightning. The camera pans down to his waist before revealing the hammer Mjolnir, indicating that it’s Thor who’s turned up at Kratos’ doorstep.

The camera then cuts to black before jumping back to the present day. You can then resume your adventure of completing side content until you complete everything else in the game. The events likely foreshadow the events of the upcoming sequel, God of War Ragnarok. We certainly can’t wait to see how the showdown between Kratos and Thor ends.
