While fans are eagerly waiting for the confirmation of God of War Ragnarok for PC, a talented YouTuber has managed to recreate Kratos' latest journey on PC by building the entire game out of LEGO bricks. Earlier this year, Sony released the PC port of God of War 2018 as part of a new initiative to make its console-exclusive games more accessible. However, it is still unknown when God of War Ragnarok will join its predecessor on the PC platform.
YouTuber ThrillDaWill has decided to create a PC version of God of War Ragnarok in a funny LEGO bricks style. ThrillDaWills' recent video gives players an in-depth look at how the LEGO game was built from the ground up and showcases surprisingly smooth gameplay, especially when using the powerful Leviathan axe from God of War. Despite the limitations of the simplistic LEGO bricks style, the cold realm of Midgard still evokes a sense of beauty as ThrillDaWill weaves blocks of different colors to convey the familiar ice, snow, and rock formations of God of War.
LEGO God Of War Ragnarok lights up the game's emotional story.
Smashing LEGO Raiders while playing as Kratos and seeing them explode into chunky red LEGOs looks really nice, ThrillDaWill insists that the game's most important feature is the ability to press F to say BOY. At any point in the game, the player can press the F key to have Kratos say the iconic line.
The LEGO God of War Ragnarok game is available for download on the ThrillDaWill page on itch.io.
Having previously recreated Bethesda's nuclear wasteland in the playable LEGO Fallout game, fans will be happy to know that ThrillDaWill's latest expedition to Midgard looks just as entertaining. However, if the stream of LEGO games based on licensed properties has taught players anything, it's that the LEGO style can be very fun! While this LEGO version may not be a perfect replacement for the monumental game, Kratos and Atreus' journey through the Nine Worlds blocky version can still be fun for fans of the God of War series.
The LEGO style works well for just about any intellectual property, regardless of tone or setting. Thanks to talented players like ThrillDaWill, even a mature game like God of War Ragnarok can turn into building blocks for the whole family. Let's hope PC fans don't have to wait for the next God of War game before Ragnarok hits Steam and other PC markets. But at least with LEGO God of War Ragnarok, they'll have something to do until it arrives.
