A Brief Look at the Trailer
The trailer starts with a voice-over from Mimir, the Norse god of knowledge. He talks about how Odin, the Allfather, had two sons: Thor and Loki. But there was another son, born to a giantess… and his name was Jörmungandr. The camera then pans to show Kratos – the game’s protagonist – walking through a snow-covered forest. He is bearded and wielding an axe. As he walks, he flashbacks to moments with his son Atreus. One scene shows Kratos teaching Atreus how to hunt; another shows the two of them fighting together against enemies. The trailer ends with Kratos and Atreus standing on the edge of a cliff, looking out at a vast body of water.
