God of War Easter Eggs, Secrets, And References Guide

Easter Eggs are always fun additions to the game, and God of War is no different. The Hidden Chambers and Chests are by no means the only things that you can find if you look hard enough. However, they are very hard to find, and this God of War Easter Eggs Guide will be your companion.

Our God of War Easter Eggs Guide will tell you all about the different Easter Eggs. It will tell you what they are, and how you can unlock them.

God of War Easter Eggs

There are many Easter Eggs that you will already know about. One of the most common ones is the Secret Ending, which you can read all about in our God of War Secret Ending Guide.

There is also another egg that reveals how Thor’s Hammer was crafted and it is revealed in a conversation between Atreus and Mimir (it was crafted by Brok and Sindri).

Let us go ahead and take a look at all of the Easter Eggs that can be found in God of War. Both what they are and how can you experience them for yourself.

References, Easter Eggs, and Secrets

One of the biggest is the indication that Atreus might very well end up being Loki. The giants had already prophesized the entire journey of Kratos and Atreus, and Loki is the name that Faye wanted Atreus to have. It is entirely possible that Atreus is the stepbrother of Thor himself, as a glimpse of this is also shown in the Secret Ending of God of War.

Valkyrie Queen
When you fight the Valkyries, it is suggested to you that there might be a queen who put them into their cursed form. Defeating the queen suggests that there was a queen that came before this one, and thus, it leads the way to you fighting Freya, the previous queen of the Valkyries.

Squirrel
You can find a squirrel at the top of the Light Elf Outpost after you solve a few puzzles. Rather, you can find a chest that will allow you to summon a squirrel known as Ratatoskr. This squirrel can be used to dig out Health or Rage stones depending on which arrows Atreus has selected.

References to Other Mythologies
You can also find a lot of references to other mythologies if you go to Odin’s Chamber in Helheim. There is a Greek, Celtic, Egyptian and a Japanese Symbol for God of War in the chamber.

Athena
Athena is visible when Kratos is finding his Blades of Chaos. She reminds him that he will always be the same Kratos, a monster. It is also a reminder that the Greek gods are always watching him, and they may return in the future iterations of the series.

The Prophecy
Towards the end, you find out that the long winter that came before Ragnarok is 100 years early, as Kratos did not do something that was written in the Prophecy. This means that Kratos is existing outside of the prophecy since he defeated the fates in the second iteration of the series.

The Horse
When Kratos tells Atreus about the horses as a story, he is actually telling him about his own past. Of how he was betrayed by Ares and how he defeated him to exact revenge.

E3 Reference
A fire troll smashes through the bridge as Kratos and Atreus try to cross it during the reveal trailer. However, that is not the case in the actual game as you only find a couple of enemies on the bridge. When that fight ends, Kratos mentions how he thought there was a troll underneath that bridge. Quite subtle, huh?
