Rick And Morty Become Kratos And Atreus In God Of War Ragnarok Ad

God of War Ragnarok is probably the biggest upcoming launch of the year. We’ll finally see how Atreus faced his godhood, a confrontation with Thor, and if the leaks are to be believed, even meeting the orchestrator behind it all, Odin. And, while we haven’t seen too much promotional material for Santa Monica Studio’s upcoming title, it doesn’t really need it, given its massive popularity over the years. However, the marketing team went ahead and made an announcement anyway, bringing in the most unlikely duo as the father-son duo.


The ad in question aired during the season six premiere of Rick and Morty, who both starred in it. As with most things about the two, the announcement was pretty random, starting with Morty walking into Rick’s lab as he shaved his head and put red paint on his face to look like Kratos. Rick wasn’t subtle about this, as he directly told Morty that they were going on adventures in the Nine Realms like in God of War.

Reluctant as always, Morty is then dragged through a portal by Rick, who finds a chest resembling those we saw in God of War, and pulls out the Leviathan Ax and “other unannounced upgrades”. All the while, Morty is being attacked by bird-like creatures – yes, those annoying ones – and doesn’t seem to hit any with the toy bow provided by Rick. Typically, Rick refuses to help Morty as he doesn’t want to get blood on the shining axe.

Other promotional content we’ve seen comes in the form of gameplay videos, with the most recent showcasing new combat mechanics coming to the game. the first time, we witnessed an inhabited place. Kratos now has two new shields, Dauntless and Stonewall, which allow you to choose between precision parries and block more attacks. The Leviathan Ax and Blades of Chaos now have new signature moves.

Plus, eagle-eyed fans spotted a move Kratos used to pull off during his Greek days.
