Valhalla is an unseen part of Asgard, mentioned in God of War (2018). It is ruled with an iron fist by the Aesir God Odin who allows only the best warriors to rest there after their deaths in battle.

Description

Valhalla is the home of fallen warriors who have been gathered by the Valkyries. These warriors will fight, feast and fornicate until the day of Ragnarök.

When Odin cursed the Valkyries, they became unable to fulfill their task of gathering warriors who had died in battle. This led to an increase of the dead in Helheim to the point where it was overflowing and the dead were walking around in the mortal realm.

Kratos and Atreus have the option of freeing the Valkyries, allowing them to return to their task and restore balance to the world.

Trivia

  • Mimir states that the Aesir have their own special way to Valhalla, even if the Valkyries aren't present. From this, it can be assumed that Baldur, Magni, and Modi all ended up in Valhalla after they were killed.
    • Interestingly, in Norse mythology, Baldur ended up in Helheim instead of Valhalla after his death. Whether or not this holds true in the games' continuity is currently unknown.
      • It must be noted, however that to go to Valhalla, one has to die in battle. Modi didn't die in battle and Baldur arguably died after his battle with Kratos and Atreus was concluded.
  • Valhalla is equivalent of Elysium Fields from the previous games, they both special way to Afterlife who died of heroic and noble death as well in the glorious battle.
  • To date, Magni is quite possibly the first and only known Aesir God to go to Valhalla after his death considering he died in his battle with Kratos while the others all have technical errors.
    • Modi was killed by Atreus outside of a battle. Technically making his death murder. He may've ended up in Helheim.
    • Baldur was stated to have ended up in Helheim instead of Valhalla in the original Norse mythology. It's currently unknown if this applies to God of War canon or not.
    • Tyr despite being a well respected God of War, was imprisoned and murdered by his own father Odin. While he certainly could've gone to Valhalla, it's uncertain if Odin would've ever allowed him entrance there after his perceived betrayal.
