Barlog claims that 15 years are excessive , which is why the second chapter of the Norse arch will also be the last and will answer all the questions raised by the final moments of the title of 2018. In Ragnarok we will witness the return of Freya, intent on taking revenge against Kratos and Atreus, and Thor will also play a fundamental role, obviously in the role of a formidable antagonist.
