While it remains to be seen if God of War: Ragnarok is still releasing in 2021 as promised, fans can look forward to at least one new God of War project this year. Dark Horse is about to launch its next God of War tie-in comic, Fall God, and IGN has an exclusive preview of the opening chapter.God of War: Fallen God aims to fill in a major missing period in the bloody career of Kratos. This four-issue series is set in between the events of God of War III and 2018’s God of War, promising to shed light on what happened to Kratos after slaughtering Zeus and Athena and what led him to try his hand at being a husband and father again.

Here’s Dark Horse’s official description for the series:
God of War: Fallen God follows Kratos after conquering Zeus and thwarting Athena. Believing himself to be finally free of his bondage, he sets sail for the desert in an attempt to distance himself from his home and his shame only to find his rage and guilt follow close behind. Kratos rages against the one foe that has proven to be unconquerable—himself. But a war against oneself is unwinnable, and only invites madness.
Fallen God reunites the creative team behind the previous God of War comic, writer Chris Roberson and artist Tony Parker. They’ll also be joined by colorist Dan Jackson, letterer John Roshell and cover artist Dave Rapoza. Look for the first issue to release on Wednesday, March 10, 2021.
