How to get the God of War secret ending and discover all its secrets

Even if you have slayed all the gods in Kratos’ epic, you may well have missed out on the God of War secret ending. God of War was undoubtedly one of the best games of the PS4 generation, and now thanks to the PS Plus Collection games you can experience it all over again on PS5. After that dramatic ending, the stage is set for an incredibly intriguing sequel in God of War Ragnarok. Yet there are even more hints at Kratos and Atreus’ future adventures hidden within the secret ending for Sony’s critically acclaimed 2018 exclusive. Curious to find out what happens next? Here’s how to trigger the God of War secret ending, and the juicy secrets hidden within. Spoilers below.

Once again... SPOILER WARNING before you read any further, as this will spoil both the regular ending, and the secret end for God of War.

Ok, still here? Nice one. Once you've scattered Fey's ashes in the mountains of Jotunheim, you'll get a mini-credits sequence. Think you're done? Think again Kratos. Instead, you'll need to go home and take a (long) nap. Go to the bed and interact with it to send Kratos and Atreus to sleep for actual "years". They've been through a lot, so they really deserve it. What happens next though, is the real God of War ending.

It's not a long cutscene but it is incredibly significant. Thunder and lightning rages overhead, waking Kratos and Atreus from their slumber and turning the sky a strange shade of blue. Kratos flings open the door, and outside in the clearing stands a hooded figure. Kratos screams against the storm, "Who are you?"

The cloak flutters back to reveal a very important hammer. Thor, anyone? 

Kratos and Atreus have presumably slept through the whole of Fimbulwinter and awake sometime on the cusp of Ragnarok. It's unclear whether Thor has arrived to seek revenge for the murder of his two sons, Magni and Modi, or to get help from Kratos and Atreus for the impending Ragnarok. Only time, a sequel, or some mammoth story DLC will tell.
