Niflheim is one of the Nine Realms of the World Tree, an optional location in God of War (2018).

DescriptionEdit

Niflheim is known as "The Realm of Fog", originally being a realm of endless snow, wind, ice and mist. However, an ambitious Dwarf alchemist named Ivaldi decided to settle a workshop in the land of mist and found a way to harness all the frosty power of Niflheim, creating works of marvel that shocked the realms of both men and Gods.

Unfortunately, the leader of the Aesir, Odin, didn't like the idea of Dwarves creating contraptions that challenged his power, so he intervened with Ivaldi's creations, to which the Dwarf furiously retaliated. As the situation escalated, Ivaldi began to meddle with forces he shouldn't have and ended up cursing the entire fog realm, altering its mist to poison anyone who breathed it, a curse to which Ivaldi was the first victim of.

The snow and ice are nowhere to be seen, the wind doesn't blow anymore and the now fatal mist releases a foul smell. Kratos and Atreus can collect all the Niflheim Ciphers in Midgard in order to access the mist world and traverse the now abandoned workshop to retrieve the realm's exclusive materials like Mist Echoes and Niflheim Alloy.

The Valkyrie Hildr was imprisoned in one of the chamber's of Ivaldi's workshop.

RegionsEdit

Ivaldi's Workshop: The only explorable location to date, the workshop is a labyrinth filled with chests containing the rare materials and still active lethal traps left behind, alongside undead beings, Seiðr creatures, Hel-Walkers and rabid beasts.

The poisonous mist makes travel in the workshop limited, depleting Kratos's health after a set period of time, time that can be partially replenished by opening up chests. The Dwarf Sindri that can be found near the entrance of the workshop can also craft equipment that lessens the mist's effects.

Further into the center of the labyrinth are locked chests that can only be opened by exchanging previously collected Mist Echoes. This is also where three Realm Tears also left behind by Ivaldi are located, which like the chests can only be opened by exchanging Mist Echoes.
