God of War Ragnarok and that little problem with Atreus

Only a few weeks left when God of War Ragnarok arrives. While waiting for the reviews and the sale, decidedly interesting details continue to emerge on the production of the title and today's concerns Atreus and specifically the dubbing, which forced Santa Monica to make an added effort of no small effort.

As reported online, there was a huge problem a time level for crafting God of War Ragnarok. The first chapter of the new Kratos cycle began in 2018, when the actor who plays Atreus had just turned 13. Today we are in 2022 and the same actor, who kept the role, has gone on to have 17. Four years of difference is a long time and this also had an impact on the dubbing, since in the game he is still a kid. Of course, grown compared to the events of the first chapter, but not too much.

“Our actor for Atreus, Sunny, is a boy and his voice has changed over the years of development,” the words of Jodie Kupsco, who supervised the work on the dialogues. “We had to tweak something to make it feel like it was happening in a smaller time frame.” There was no need for major changes, since the time window is more or less the same, but it is definitely something to take into account when working with very young actors and especially when facing very important challenges, such as for example that of the COVID-19 pandemic, which also caused delays in other highly anticipated video games.

  • God of War Ragnarok will debut on November 9, 2022, exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The title will probably also arrive on PC, but it will not be available for at least a year, as is the practice for all Sony exclusives.
