God Of War 2 Storyline Details Hint At Major Role For Faye

Kratos’ second wife may end up being a playable character in a future God Of War game, as Cory Barlog discusses his story plans.

Director Cory Barlog has given some first hints as to what direction a God Of War sequel may take, as he talks about his desire to put the focus on Kratos’ second wife. Speaking to PlayStation Access, he said that he’d like a future game to deal with Faye’s backstory, which given the way he talks about it may even mean she becomes a playable character.

‘Faye was the one I identified with the most’, says Barlog in the video. ‘You get to understand that she has way more power than all of them and is actually the controller of therefore much in this universe. ‘That way, when we build this up to when you actually get to see this… I don’t know how we’re going tell this or when we’re going to tell this, however I really want to tell the story of Kratos and Faye meeting.’

Faye is never seen in the God Of War reboot, however her death sets in motion the plot of the game and she’s constantly referenced by Kratos and her son Atreus.

At first it seems that she, unlike most of the other characters, is not from Norse mythology, however a late game reveal (which we won’t spoil here however the video above does) explains who she really is.

Her true nature implies plenty of potential for interesting video game abilities and several times she’s described as being a great warrior.

As you can see, there’s no indication that Faye’s story would necessarily be told in the next game, as the reboot is expected to be part of at least a trilogy of new games.

It is the most Barlog has talked about a follow-up though, with Sony never confirming a sequel or indicating when it might be out. Although you can expect that to change as soon as the PlayStation 5 is properly unveiled.

Existing rumours suggest that future games may involve Kratos heading to Ancient Egypt or Japan, however there’s little real evidence for that and therefore far the talk of involving Faye is the most detailed confirmation we’ve had of anything.
