A fun mod God of War for PC transforms to Kratos into a father even worse by adding extra lines of dialogue to certain scenes. Much has been made of Kratos’ parental abilities in God of War and in the upcoming Ragnarök sequel. In the original trilogy of games and in the various spinoffs, the character seemed very removed from the role of fatherhood given the tragic events that launched the series created by Santa Monica Studio.
The reboot that hit stores in 2018 positioned Kratos as the sole father figure to his son, a widowed single father who was clearly finding it difficult to connect with his only living son. Seeing his interactions with Atreus, some critics and players considered him a bad father. However, even early in the story, Kratos shows signs of trying, slowly trying to shed the many layers of rage built up over years of fighting the Greek pantheon in the original trilogy. God of War. It remains to be seen how he will take on a somewhat older Atreus in God of War: Ragnarok.
Suffice to say, the modding community has had a field day since the release of God of War on PC in early January. One of the funniest mods currently making the rounds, courtesy of Reddit user Fake_Mophead, adds additional voice lines from actor Christopher Judge to otherwise serious scenes. In the famous “don’t regret it, be better” exchange of words, the fan-created content sees Kratos say to a repentant Atreus: “Hello, I’m sorry, I’m dad.Another altered scene features improvised lines from Judge. After Freya asks him to retrieve the muttoncress from her garden, Kratos grumbles: “I’m the fucking god of warPC players can access the God of Dad Jokes mod through Nexus Mods.
It is not surprising that the humor of Kratos by Christopher Judge works well in a parenting joke mod for the latest God of War entry. The extra lines add a bit of frivolity to the experience, though characters like Sindri, Brok, and Mimir add quite a bit throughout Kratos and Atreus’ long journey. Fans have been waiting for the release of God of War on PC, not only to be able to experience the title outside of PlayStation hardware, but also to enjoy the hilarity with fan-created mods that can make anything possible.
To the delight of many, the next adventure of the father and son duo will revolve around the mythological events known as Ragnarök. At the moment, Sony and Santa Monica Studio have only shown a single gameplay trailer for the long-awaited sequel, but the nods to Thor and other important Nordic figures keep the excitement going. God of War: Ragnarok It will release on PS4 and PS5 sometime this year.
