    A devoted fan has created a magnificent piece of artwork that immortalizes the well-known character Kratos from the God of War series. Sony’s Santa Monica Studio released the game’s most recent iteration last year, igniting continued fervor among series fans.

    God of War made its debut on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, swiftly propelling Kratos, one of Sony’s most iconic video game figures, to fame. The game’s brutal hack-and-slash gameplay, intertwined with a storyline rooted in ancient Greek mythology, resonated with players, leading to the creation of numerous sequels. According to Sony’s post-launch announcement, the 2022 release of God of War Ragnarok, which stars an aged and grizzled Kratos alongside his son Atreus in a conflict against powerful Norse gods, set records for the fastest-selling PlayStation game.

    To pay homage to the series, an artist from Ireland, known as Mikesartwrks on Reddit, produced a breathtaking portrait of Kratos, capturing his rugged demeanor and the iconic red stripe set against a striking crimson background. The artist’s inbox is now inundated with praise and requests for similar artistic renditions of other popular figures as a result.

    In addition to God of War, the Irish artist also drew inspiration from other video games like Red Dead Redemption and GTA 5, displaying impressive works that featured Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Assassin’s Creed, a popular character among fans.

    Although the fanbase thrives and finds creative ways to celebrate the franchise, the likelihood of any God of War Ragnarok downloadable content (DLC) release in the near future is slim. Director Eric Williams recently cautioned fans against anticipating substantial additional content due to the game’s scope. This news may disappoint those eager for further expansion of the franchise’s lore. However, Santa Monica may follow a similar pattern to the 2018 installment, which only received post-launch content after the main game’s release.

    Portraying their love for Sony’s flagship series, fans like Mikesartwrks express their admiration through artistic creations. Enthusiasts of God of War have displayed gratitude in various ways, such as reconstructing the stoic protagonist’s home with gingerbread or recreating Kratos’ likeness using LEGO bricks. While the future of the God of War franchise remains uncertain, a dedicated group of individuals is eager to demonstrate to Santa Monica Studios the substantial fan following of the fierce deity.

    God of War Ragnarok is currently available for the PS4 and PS5 platforms.
