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?

      I remember also hearing something while Zeus and Gaea where arguing during the final battle…and her choosing Kratos as her champion and not the other one…I don’t remember exactly what was said and I remember thinking with hope (not meant to be a pun based on the facts of the game) there is someone else or did Zeus mean Hercules (being Kratos’ half brother). Now hearing of Kratos’ brother I thought maybe that could have some relevance.

      Also agreed, there are a few major gods still alive (granted Dionysus and Aphrodite wouldn’t be much of a threat, and I dont remember Artemis or Demeter meeting there end) and now Athena appears to be an aggressor for power There is still so much left to make money off of can’t wait for GoW IV.

    • john

      there cant be another god of war because kratos killed himself?????????

    • nico

      You can assume it, but you dont actually see him dead he has escaped the clutches of death before..
      I think there will be a new one but it wont be called gow4 thats for sure its probable about his brother, it offers a great chance to expand the story and backstory of kratos and his relation to his brother.

    • Jack

      If you pay attention Kratos is still alive he crawled off the rock at the end , but if they make a next one you wont hear anything about it for idk how many years lol but it’ll be worth the wait , i think it may be about his brother or it may even be a completely different game , or they may even reboot the entire series who knows all i know is whatever they do it’ll be epic just like all the other s

    • Ted

      Kratos didnt die, so i think that in GOW IV his brother will be the boss like zeus. actually im not sure about kratos surviving so ill go shed some tears…

    • oscar

      Kratos brother pulled him off the rock. He took him to his chaos realm, then he will have him go through time to change all the events that took place.

    • Aarcoo90

      in GOW III theres actually a note in the underworld by a man saying hades betrayed him saying hades promised him he would get his revenge on the one who abandoned him I wonder who that could be?
