There is a Heartfelt Homage to The Last of Us 2 in God of War Ragnarok – Pc Games Latest
There is a whimsical easter egg in God of War Ragnarok that is devoted to The Last of Us 2 by Naughty Dog. There are extremely minor God of War Ragnarok spoilers in this article, so beware!
Just below, you can see a post from the Last of Us subreddit showcasing a find in the newest instalment from Sony Santa Monica. It turns out that The Last of Us 2 and the tragic events of the sombre sequel are referenced in a collectable poem from God of War Ragnarok.
Both a “surrogate daughter” and a “bearded, nasty father” are mentioned, both of whom must be none other than Joel and Ellie, respectively. The poem emphasises how the latter will never have “respite” from a world of bloodshed and brutality, something Ellie suffers a great deal, as fans of Naughty Dog’s franchise will know.
It’s actually a beautifully composed and written poem that emphasises The Last of Us 2’s view on the idea of awful things happening alongside wonderful things, especially in the case of Joel and Ellie’s love.
If this poem is any indication, gamers might want to keep an eye out for collecting poetry in God of War Ragnarok.
