God of War Ragnarok’s Side Quest Pays Tribute to Late Dev

A moving homage to a Sony Santa Monica programmer who died appears in a God of War Ragnarok side mission. God of War has several Easter eggs referencing earlier PlayStation exclusive titles, but this one may be the most moving yet.

As they go through God of War Ragnarok, players may come across Favors, which provide them with additional gifts and tales about the characters in the Norse kingdoms. The game features around 20 hours of side content, and Sony Santa Monica advised players not to miss the side quests if at all feasible. (Although the side missions aren’t necessary for the main plot.) One unique Favor is “Throughout the Realms,” in which Mimir recounts Jari and Somr’s journey across the realms.
