God of War’s Kratos is now playable in Minecraft, thanks to a mod that reskins Steve as the axe-wielding protagonist.
A Minecraft modder has replaced Steve’s appearance with that of Kratos, allowing fans to live out their God of War Ragnarok fantasies in Mojang’s open-world game. Even though many people think of video games as being for kids, the sandbox IP has managed to attract players of all ages because it allows players to be as creative as they want. This gives it a replay value that most other games can only dream of. Kratos’s world is not immune to the ability to mash together different franchises, which contributes to the longevity of the human race.
With God of War Ragnarok’s critical acclaim, Santa Monica Studio’s latest installment in the series could easily go down as one of the most acclaimed games of the year. After the success of the 2018 reboot, fans were eager for more, especially given the developer’s reworking of the game’s axe-wielding protagonist into a somewhat emotionless, brooding father. One person has attempted to offer a blocky version of Kratos for PC players, despite the fact that this entry is currently only available on PlayStation.
Thanks to a reskin, PCGamesN discovered that Minecraft fans can now become the Greek-Norse demigod. On Planet Minecraft, a user named Western Shooter has changed Steve’s classic look to make him look like the main character from God of War, complete with the game’s signature red stripe tattoo and beard. Although it won’t exactly transform the sandbox game into Ragnarok, it’s a cool skin for fans of Santa Monica Studio’s franchise. Western Shooter has also created skins for Hannibal Lecter and Dracula for Minecraft.
It is not uncommon for fans to make mistakes in Mojang games. Consider the Minecraft player who recreated iconic Star Wars locations or the person who is recreating the Las Vegas strip at 1:1 scale. It’s not just fictional universes that receive the blocky treatment; it’s also common practice to create replicas of real-world locations and structures.
Minecraft, with its immersive open world and near-infinite gameplay, has truly stood the test of time, becoming one of the most successful games ever released. It is not just the creations that people conjure. With a devoted modding community, a game can be transformed into a variety of forms, be it through new skins or custom mechanics. With all it has to offer, it’s no surprise that people waste so much time building whatever comes to mind.
Minecraft is available on Mobile, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
