A Minecraft modder has swapped out Steve’s look for a Kratos skin, meaning fans can now live out their God of War Ragnarok fantasies in Mojang’s open-world title. Despite it being a video game many associate with children, the sandbox IP has managed to appeal to players of all ages, with the ability to inspire boundless creativity, giving it replay value most other games can only dream of. Part of this longevity is not only due to the endless creations people make, but the ability to mash franchises together, and Kratos’ world is no different.
With God of War Ragnarok receiving critical praise, the latest installment in Santa Monica Studio’s series could easily go down as one of the most acclaimed releases of this year. After the success of the 2018 reboot, fans were hungry for more, especially given how the developer reworked the game’s axe-wielding protagonist, turning him into a mature yet somewhat emotionless father with a brooding edge. While this current entry is only available on PlayStation at the moment, one person has attempted to offer up a blocky version of Kratos for PC gamers.
As spotted by PCGamesN, it’s now possible for Minecraft fans to become the Greek-cum-Norse demigod thanks to a reskin. Over on Planet Minecraft, user Western_Shooter has repurposed the classic Steve look, turning him into the God of War hero, complete with the trademark red stripe facial tattoo and beard. Although it won’t turn the sandbox game into Ragnarok exactly, it’s still a neat skin for those who are fans of Santa Monica Studio’s franchise. Western_Shooter has also done some other Minecraft skins, including Hannibal Lecter and Dracula.
It’s not uncommon for fans to mix things up in the Mojang title. Take the Minecraft player who recreated iconic Star Wars locations or the person who’s doing a 1:1 scale replica of the Las Vegas strip. It’s not just fictional universes that get the blocky treatment, as many are wont to create facsimiles of real-world places and buildings.
With its immersive open world and near-infinite gameplay, Minecraft has truly stood the test of time, going down as one of the most successful releases in gaming. It’s not just the creations people conjure up, either. With a dedicated modding community, the game can change into all sorts of things, whether that’s through new skins or custom mechanics. With everything it has to offer, it’s no wonder people can lose so much time building whatever comes to mind.
Minecraft is available on Mobile, PC, PS3, PS4, Switch, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
