Kratos and Atreus are God of War Ragnarok’s heroic father-son duo, and one of the game’s main story themes is the coming of age of Atreus and Kratos, who learns to grant his son the freedom that comes with aspiring manhood . For some players, despite the game’s mythological setting, this father-son dynamic is likely very relatable, and you might even wonder if Atreus is about the same age as your own son. Kratos certainly looks older than he did in the Greek era God of War series, but isn’t he a god? Hasn’t it been around for hundreds, maybe thousands of years?

How old is Kratos in God of War Ragnarok?
The exact age of Kratos is difficult to determine, but we can be sure that he must be very, very old in God of War Ragnarok. First off, there’s a 1,000-year gap between God of War III and 2018’s God of War. Based on the Greek-era timeframe of the God of War series and what we know of the age at which Spartan men marry and serve in the military, he must have been about 50 years old in God of War III. And it’s been three years between God of War and God of War Ragnarok, which still makes Kratos around 1,050 years old, give or take a few years.
How old is Atreus in God of War Ragnarok?
Atreus’ age is not explicitly mentioned in any of the games, but there was an official God of War novelization from 2018 that explicitly states Atreus as being 11 years old. We also know that about three years have passed between God of War and God of War Ragnarok, so Atreus must be about 14 years old in God of War Ragnarok.
