The map included in the God of War Ragnarok Jötnar Edition gave fans their first look at the game’s interpretation of the Nine Kingdoms.
In Kratos and Atreus’ first adventure, players learned all about the Nine Kingdoms, but were only able to visit just over half of them, including Alfheim, Helheim, Jotunheim, Muspelheim, Niflheim, and of course, Midgard. Three of the realms, Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard, were all closed to the player in Game 1, but it’s been confirmed that we’ll be able to visit them for the first time in Ragnarok.
Last week, Sony Santa Monica showed off the Collector’s and Jötnar’s Editions of God of War Ragnarok, including detailing all the items featured inside, including a Steelbook that has already been translated. Exclusive to the Jötnar Edition is a Yggdrasil cloth map, which, as reported by GamesRadar, shows off all nine realms for the first time and gives a little hint of what to expect from the new areas.
Each section of the map contains small clues for each realm, including what looks like the Bifrost shooting through the skies of Asgard, a fiery figure stood in Muspelheim that some speculate could be Surtur, and even the dragon Niddhog in the corner of the map. You can even see Noatun, a seaside cabin in Vanaheim where the Vanir used to hold their meetings.
As for the runes in the upper left corner, it reads: “For Brok and Sindri and their ambitions to become the greatest blacksmiths in the world, training in their dwarven kingdom was only the beginning of their path. Sure, they created wonders like Draupnir and the Feathered Mantle, but true genius requires extensive education.”
He continues: “They sought him in the nine realms as well as in the space between the great tree of the world, Yggdrasil, surpassing their previous creations with the hammer Mjolnir and the great ax of Leviathan. None, except the gods, n was able to map out strange geography, but among mortals few mortals can boast of the expertise enjoyed by the Huldra brothers whose ability to navigate and traverse the realms rivals even that of Odin All Father.
