More people are finally finishing God of War Ragnarok over the weeks since launch, and PlayStation is still dropping these behind-the-scenes featurettes.

The Ties That Bind: A New Behind-The-Scenes Look at God of War Ragnarok

Just in, we have a new episode looking into the themes of Ragnarok and its characters. We delve not just into the relationship between Kratos and Atreus, but with other characters as well like Freya, Brok and Sindri, and of course, Odin. Check it:

Episode 9 of the God of War Ragnarök Behind the Scenes series will take you deep into the Realm Between Realms to the home of the Huldra Brothers, and refuge for Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir during the story. This episode will explore the family relationships that are at the core of God of War Ragnarök’s story. From Kratos and Atreus to the complex, but no less devoted, Aesir – the team at Santa Monica Studio discusses how they approached making the many families of God of War Ragnarök feel real.

Though the previous God of War had Atreus and Kratos at the very center of the story, Ragnarok focuses more on the bonds of the two with other characters, since the game is building up to Atreus forging his own path away from Kratos.

We also see a kind of dark mirror of the father-son relationship between Odin and his children, plus Thor and his daughter. Though Odin is a character that has been done time and again over the decades, I thought Ragnarok’s interpretation of him being a modern-day mob boss was pretty fun to watch.

We don’t know what happens next for God of War, but for now, Ragnarok still follows the tradition of great gameplay with some solid storytelling.

God of War Ragnarok is now playable for PlayStation 4|5.
