Why is Kratos from God Of Warfare in Fortnite? (pic: Twitter)
Kratos appears set to be amongst the following wave of hunters in Fortnite, so does that imply a correct announcement for God Of Warfare 2 is coming?
The new season of Fortnite solely began yesterday and but already Epic Video games are dropping hints about who the following ‘hunter’ character is… and it’s not for the predator, Lobo, or any of the opposite fan guesses.
Sony launched an audio log from the character Jonesy, who describes somebody who has, ‘actually vanquished a number of gods along with his naked fingers in a match of uncontrollable rage’.
That might most likely describe fairly just a few fictional characters however the obvious one, particularly because it’s a tweet from Sony, is Kratos from God Of Warfare.
After which dataminers spoiled all of the hypothesis by posting footage of… Kratos from God Of Warfare. (At first we thought he was meant to be the model from the PlayStation 2 video games, however it’s simply the Fortnite artwork fashion making him look youthful.)
Kratos’ inclusion raises a number of factors, the primary of which is that if Kratos counts as a ‘hunter’ then clearly the opposite Seasons 5 additions don’t need to be restricted to bounty hunters or something extra particular than ‘folks that struggle’.
Extra curiously, you’d assume that Kratos can be unique to the PlayStation model of Fortnite. So does that imply there’ll be platform-specific equivalents for the opposite variations? Possibly Samus Aran for the Swap and somebody from Gears or Halo for Xbox? And what concerning the Android and PC variations?
It additionally raises the query of why Kratos? Or no less than why now? Often licensed characters are solely added to Fortnite after they have one thing to promote – like celebs showing on a chat present – however up until now there’s been no indication that the brand new God Of Warfare is imminent.
The teaser announcement again in September didn’t even verify the identify however with The Recreation Awards because of happen subsequent week, which is usually used to showcase upcoming video games, would possibly this imply that God Of Warfare can be one of many video games Sony can be displaying off?
It does immediately appear fairly possible, and possibly if that Samus Aran hypothesis is true for the Swap maybe Metroid Prime 4 too? Though that could be getting a bit carried away…
