There is a lot to do in God of War Ragnarok, and it’s the kind of game where exploration is generously rewarded with all sorts of entertaining, fun, and sometimes heartbreaking quests. The real story behind Through the realms is particularly poignant, however, because it concerns a deceased Santa Monica Studio developer – and his relationship with a colleague.
Before expanding further, however, it should be noted that the content of this article refers to a Foster in the PS5 and PS4 title which some may consider a spoiler. While this is a relatively minor side quest in the grand scheme of things, it’s your opportunity to exit before you get into the details.
In the game, you will discover an area known as the The Eternal Campfire in Midgard, which emits a distinctive smoke signal as you approach. You will find a cookbook with a list of ingredients, which you will then find in the Nine Kingdoms. The quest describes the story of Jari and Somr, who represent the real-life couple and Santa Monica Studio developers Sam Handrick and Jake Snipes. Sadly, Snipes passed away in 2020.
