A God of War fan shows off FromSoftware’s stunning recreation of Spartan warrior Kratos in Elden Ring with a series of stunning photos.
A fan of his God of War Protagonist Kratos has taken off their love for the character, showing off an incredible Elden Ring construction inspired by the theophonic Spartan. Highlighted in a series of stunning screenshots, playing with this impressive build looks like an exciting new way to explore the Lands Between in FromSoftware’s hit game.
Taking the intense battles and gorgeously ominous locations that have made FromSoftware’s titles a hit and bringing them into an open-world environment for the first time, Elden Ring absolutely dominated the gaming landscape in 2022. Praised by fans and critics alike for its haunting and expansive world, memorable boss encounters, and polished gameplay, Elden Ring set a new high bar for the Soulslike genre. Using the game’s powerful character creator, players have created unique and often humorous characters ranging from Mike Tyson to Wednesday Addams in Elden Ring.
In a new post on the r/GodofWar subreddit, user rdtmark shared screenshots of the incredible Kratos build he created in Elden Ring. Through a series of stunning screenshots, they showcase a near-perfect representation of the pale Spartan facing off against some of the toughest foes that Elden Ring has to offer. Not content with just doing a visual facsimile of Kratos, rdtmark even chose his weapon to load up on to mirror iconic weapons like the Leviathan Ax from God of War. The attention to detail in the build is impeccable, with Kratos looking right at home in the deadly world of the Lands Between.
Fans of both God of War and Elden Ring responding to the post were blown away by the impressive build, which left a poster so impressive they said they were going to re-install Elden Ring immediately for another playthrough. Commenting on Hoslow’s Petal Whips complementing Kratos’ brand of Blades of Chaos, one impressed user noted that most people attempting a Kratos build usually stuck to the less visually impressive magma blades. In order to provide guidance to other players who want to create their own Kratos Elden Ringrdtmark helpfully answered several posts listing the various weapons and armor used to create the build.
With a character model that looks like it was taken straight off God of War: Ragnarok and a loadout designed to mimic that game’s combat as closely as possible, this build of Kratos is one of the most impressive Elden Ring creations to date. Not only does this unique build pay homage to one of the most iconic characters in gaming, but it does so in a decidedly less terrifying way than the recent God of War mod for The Last of Us 2.
