God of War PS4 comes with a very cool Avengers Infinity War easter egg. In the game, Kratos has his own version of the Infinity Stones that allow him to pretend to be the mad Titan, Thanos.
If players manage to put 3 of 6 possible enhancements which contain a reference to the powerful Infinity Stones into a fully upgraded “Shattered Gauntlet of Ages” Talisman, Kratos will be able to shoot purple beams of power through his fist just like Thanos. Here’s a look at how this works.
Here are the six stones found in the game:
- Andvari’s Soul – Soul Stone
- Njord’s Temporal Stone – Time Stone
- Eye of the Outer Realm – Space Stone
- Ivaldi’s Corrupted Mind – Mind Stone
- Asgard’s Shard of Existence – Reality Stone
- Muspelheim Eye of Power – Power Stone
The official description of the gauntlet used by Kratos is “An ancient relic of Hel deemed too powerful to remain whole, fragments of its former strength lie scattered throughout the realms.” A clear nod to the recently released Avengers Infinity War.
All six stones are too powerful to remain together so they are scattered throughout the universe. It is a nice nod to one of the biggest Marvel properties that are loved by millions of fans and most of them, probably love God of War too.
Speaking of God of War, according to Cory Barlog, he has five more games planned for the series. Nothing concrete is done so the idea is currently in his head alone. Moreover, he mentioned that developing the next game won’t take as long as the latest entry.
