KRATOS - God of War II - Plot/Story line

KRATOS - God of War II - Plot/Story line
Kratos devoted much of his time with his armies on Earth, conquering city after city. Ignoring Athena's pleas, Kratos prepared to deliver the decisive blow on the city of Rhodes.

Upon arriving, Kratos began to destroy the city. However, Zeus drained much of Kratos' powers and sent the Colossus of Rhodes to stop him. Zeus tricked Kratos into draining the remainder of his power into the Blade of Olympus in order to charge it to full strength. Kratos destroyed the Colossus, but was severely wounded as he was boasting about his victory when the Colossus' hand fell on him, knocking the blade of Olympus out of his hand rendering him mortal. Zeus quickly killed Kratos and destroyed his army.

As Kratos descended into Hades, he received help from the Titan known as Gaia. She told him that in order to change his fate, Kratos had to seek out the three Sisters of Fate.

Kratos mounted Pegasus, which took him to the Lair of the Titan Typhon, where it was promptly trapped. Kratos then met the Titan Prometheus, and after acquiring Typhon's Bane Kratos set free Prometheus by killing him. With the new Rage of the Titans (which he acquired from the ashes of Prometheus, Kratos freed Pegasus and continued to the Island of Creation.

Kratos safely arrived on the island. Kratos then made his way to the Steeds of Time. On the massive Steeds of Time, Kratos encountered and slew Theseus, who held a critical key. Using the steeds, Kratos joined the three islands together. Kratos encountered numerous adversaries on the island, such as the Thracian Barbarian King, Euryale and Perseus.

After stealing Icarus's wings, Kratos encountered Atlas under the earth's surface. Atlas returned him to the Temple, where he defeated the Sisters of Fate, Lakhesis, Athropos, and Clotho. He used their mirrors to return to Rhodes, where he stopped his death at the hands of Zeus.

The two battled on the Summit of Sacrifice, where Zeus displayed his vast power. Unable to defeat the God with brute force, Kratos pretended to surrender in order to catch Zeus off guard. Before Kratos could kill Zeus, Athena intervened by using her body as a shield as Kratos stabbed her. Athena died after a brief explanation of how killing Zeus, who is Kratos' father, will destroy Olympus.

Traveling back in time to the Titan war, Kratos took the Titans back to the present. They mounted an attack on Olympus as the gods held a war council. The outcome of this battle has yet to be revealed.
