God of War Wiki

Midgard is a major location in God of War (2018). It is one of the Nine Realms of Norse Mythology. It is the largest of the explorable regions. Midgard means "middle-ground" and is the realm that humans and mortals dwell - though it is not uncommon for the gods and other mythological creatures to make an appearance, most prominently, Jörmungandr.

Midgard was created from the corpse of Ymir by Odin, Vili and Ve.

A major feature of Midgard is the Lake of Nine, a large traversable lake with a temple located on an island in the center. This temple is said to be the link between all Nine Realms.

Despite being the realm of humans, The Reavers are the only living humans in this area, with most leaving a long time ago. Due to the world serpent’s appearance causing a great flood, evidenced by the structures revealed during the game when the water level lowers, and the rise of the undead in the wake of the Valkyrie's disappearance, all that remains of civilization are ruins, but now Draugr and Hel-Walkers dominate the lands.

Midgard also contains many inhabitant wildlife, including deer, mountain goats (possibly), boars, wolves, squirrels, rats, frogs, lizards, seagulls, ravens, fishes, crabs, and cave trilobites.

  • The rune of Midgard is Jera (ᛃ), which represents the seasons.
  • Due to Midgard being the center of the realms, it does not have a travel door of its own and simply points at the Vanaheim door despite not activating the gem to actually go to the realm. This makes Midgard the only Realm to not have its own door.
