God of War 4: Life Beyond Olympus With Kratos’ Brother

30 December 2009

God of War 4 to star brother of Kratos as seen in Brith of the Beast epilogue of God of War 1?
Speculation on the Internet abounds that God of War 4 will feature Kratos brother . . . could he possibly be the new Kratos? Does life beyond Olympus connect us with Kratos past like never before?

So how did avid God of War fans come to this conclusion?

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • They simply connected two and two. You see, in the recent God of War Collection, there is a scene in God of War 1 that you unlock after finishing the game called “Birth of the Beast”. Simply watching this scene will earn you a Silver Trophy called “Legend of the Twins”.

    The scene in question tells of Kratos childhood, and how he grew up in Sparta with a brother. However unlike Kratos himself, his brother was cast aside to the mountains and left to die . . . He was determined to be unfit as a Spartan (a method of warrior-raising by the Spartans that is based on historical fact). And now his lost brother wants revenge on the brother that left him abandoned.

    Even though this is an old scene, it gains new significance now due to the simple fact that you get a Trophy for watching it. Why would the developers focus on this scene and make it so important as to warrant a Trophy?

    Maybe it’s because they are hinting at the future of God of War by rewarding you for delving into its past?

    Now of course this is all speculation. But while the God of War story has officially closed with God of War 3, that doesn’t mean the series will end according to John Hight in an interview with HipHopGamer. And this sounds like a really cool possibility of taking players and the series in a new direction while still linking it to the previous universe.

    If you never got to play God of War 1 or want to see where this speculation comes from, here is the Birth of the Beast bonus video.

    Update January 2010: John Hight, Sony Santa Monica’s director of product development said in a recent interview about God of War 3 that: “This is not the end of God of War. This is definitely the end of the trilogy, but we’re going to continue to do God of War games. We’re going to be very careful about what we do; we’re the keepers of the franchise and we don’t want to see it ruined or polluted.”

    Update April 2011: The God of War 4 release date has been rumored to be September 2012.

    Update January 2012: God of War 4 co-op rumors suggest the PS3 game will have online co-op with Kratos and his brother Deimos teaming up to escape the afterlife.

    Update April 2012: Sony is promising a game reveal on April 19th, 2012, for a game that revolves around “vengeance” and “redemption.” That certainly sounds like God of War 4! What do you think?

      Everyone has Very good points. I am a huge Fan of GoW myself. I love the adventures and the fact when you think a God is dead… it isn’t and Aarcoo90 are you implying that hades was Kratos’s brother? If so then the whole brother thing kinda fell thru the crapper. But whatever they do im sure it will be the same as always.. ULTRA FREAKING AMAZING BEYOND ANYTHING IN THE WORLDDDDDD

      i think there is definitely a god of war 4 because in god of war 2 the sisters of fate said that “the pheonix will rise again” and if u see where he died u would see a carving of the pheonix on the floor

      Pls find an angle to bring Deimos back as a sojourner in Kratos’ peace seeking mission. It would make a killer just to once have Two player mode. Was anticipating Deimos would be but he’s dead. This Game (sorry this is not a Game) is Epic, Godly beats anything Ive touched.

      any one who played ghost of sparta will get my point remember in the end of ghost of sparta that gravedigger who puts deimos in his grave said now only one left so that trail of blood is pointing that gravedigger took kratos’ body and put him in his empty grave now kratos and his brother deimos are now in afterlife(underworld) now they have to find a way out from afterlife thats why u see that trail blood…get it guyssssssss

      Why are you mixing mythologies together? Thor has nothing to do with Greek Mythology.
