It featured the Draugr, which is described to be an undead monster and one of many creatures Kratos will encounter. Furthermore, the second video now shifts its focus on the Revenant. Different sketches and concept art depict the enemy with different designs and forms. Nevertheless, it is always shown holding a Seidr magic staff, which is probably its main weapon that provides it with energy and abilities.

‘Realm of Mysteries’ concept art

Prior to their “Lost Pages of Norse Myth” concept, Santa Monica Studio and Sony shared some concept art via Twitter. These mainly showcased some environmental and scenery sketches and was labeled “Realm of Mysteries [VIDEO]”. A few pictures also illustrated Katos along with his son Atreus, which will reportedly play a big part during gameplay. His involvement in the game was likened to a parent guiding a child under their care.

In some of these illustrations, the protagonist is shown facing against a horde of enemies, while keeping his son behind him for safety. Perhaps these scenes might make it to the final game when it's released sometime next year.

Artbook most likely to be included

Just like most AAA games, “God of War” will most likely offer different versions of the game during launch. Pre-orders have not yet been announced, but it will most likely have a limited or a collector’s edition. Some fans even speculate that the gorgeous artwork featured in the “Realm of Mysteries” and “Lost Pages of Norse Myth” deserve an artbook. So far, the footage shared by Sony and Santa Monica Studio has revealed two of the game’s creatures, which are the Draugr and Revenant. Based on the gameplay trailers there are more enemies that could be featured in the succeeding installments.
