Sony’s new IP “God of War” series “God of War: Ragnarok” recently officially released a live demonstration. A new character, Angrboda, appeared in the demo, but in the game, Angel Bo Da became a black character, and with it came the dissatisfaction of netizens with the race of this new character.

According to netizens on Twitter, blacks have never existed in Norse mythology, and there are no black Vikings-actual historians dispute this claim. As a result, netizens are disgusted with the Angel Boda shown in “God of War: Twilight of the Gods” by the Santa Monica Studio. Many replies on Twitter are spreading science to the developers of this game. There were so many comments on popular science that the developers closed the comments.
Matt Sophos, the screenwriter and plot leader of “God of War: Ragnarok”, ran a “match” with netizens on Twitter.Some netizens said that Matt Sophos is a double-standard screenwriter, and questioned whether he would add some Egyptian white gods to the “God of War” game.
Matt Sophos responded: “Are there blue dwarfs in Norse mythology? Is Loki the son of a Greek demigod? Do you know that Jotunheim is not real? They can be anyone or anything, some even giant snakes? But I got it. You think Yemeng is okay just because his scales are white, right? Well, good luck to you. Hope you can find a game that suits your feelings better.”
At present, “God of War: Twilight of the Gods” will be available on PS4 and PS5 platforms in 2022. The specific release time has not yet been announced.
