Travel to Tyr’s Temple in Midgard, When Ready
After meeting back up with Mimir, use the mystic gateway in front of you to travel to Midgard. Once you make it, use the elevator on the east side of the Lake of Nine and then walk across the bridge with Freya into your tent on the right.
The Path: The Realms at War
Watch the cutscene where Kratos tells Atreus a story in his tent. Once it’s over, you’ll be in another dream sequence. Follow Faye along the main path, painting her hands as she stops by each tree in the woods. Eventually, you’ll paint the last tree and Faye will speak with Kratos about love and grief.
After that scene is over, you’ll see another where Kratos wakes up and agrees to be the general for the coming fight. Once it’s over, walk into Tyr’s temple and upgrade your gear with Lunda, she’ll give you the Fate Breaker armor set. After suiting up for the fight ahead, head over the light bridge to the west and into the center of Try’s temple.
Walk to the other side of the temple and interact with the stone in the ground. You’ll see a cutscene where Kratos gives a speech about the war and then blows the horn to unite the realms and enter Asgard.
Fight to Reach the War Machines
After the scene, jump down to the ground below and follow Freya along the main path, taking out Einherjar, until you jump down into a large arena-like trench. Fight off the Einherjar and monsters. Once they’re all down, grapple up the wall that points you towards Asgard’s wall.
Continue along the main path with Freya until you enter an arena with an ogre and a large Einherjar with a scythe. After taking out all of the enemies, use your blades to pull down a rock wall on the right side of the arena. Climb up the ledge and continue forward until you have to scooch across a wall over the water.
Meet back up with Atreus and watch the cutscene where the group comes up with new plans. Once the scene is over, continue forward, fighting more Einherjar until a dragon lands on a broken pedestal across the river. It’ll start blasting you with fire so use your spear to destroy the golden symbol at the base of the pillar.
After the dragon is dealt with cross the water over the rubble and continue along the main path until meeting up with Sindri. He’ll say that the dwarves aren’t coming so continue along until you see a cutscene where Ragnarok finally appears and Sindri destroys the war machines
The Realms at War
Once the scene is over, you’ll be playing as Atreus. Jump down into the area below and take out the Einherjar that attack you. Once they’re all down, meet Sindri on the opposite side of the arena near some downed rocks. After being blasted through the rocks, Atreus will transform into a bear. Take out the Einherjar and climb up the rocks on the far side of the arena.
Climb towards the wall and you’ll be confronted by Thrud. After the scene is over, mash R2 to shoot a hole in Asgards’s wall. You’ll see another cutscene of the wall coming down.
Once the scene is over, you’ll be playing as Kratos again. Push forward into Asgard until you jump down into an arena. Fight off the Einherjar and then jump across the gap in the ground on the far side of the arena. Continue forward and you’ll find yourself in another arena.
Fight through the Einherjar and then continue along the main path, fighting off Einherjar and their monsters until a cutscene starts where Thor attacks Kratos.
