This page of the God of War Ragnarok game guide contains a high-quality interactive map of the Midgard realm - one of the lands available in the game. We have marked all important locations on the map - these include secrets and collectibles, side activities, favors (optional quests) and mystic gateways (fast travel). Using our interactive map will help you explore Midgard in 100 percent.
First visit to Midgard in main story
The game begins in Midgard, but the realm can't be freely explored right away. The same thing applies when Atreus first appears there alone.
You can start freely exploring the icy Midgard after starting the main quest The Word of Fate, during which Kratos will follow the Nornin trail to find the Well of Urd.
You won't be able to reach everything the Lake of Nine and the Shores of Nine have to offer right away. Some of the areas are inaccessible until you make enough progress in the story. Kratos may not yet, e.g. have a spear used for exploration.
Collectibles and side activities
You can find different types of secrets while exploring Midgard. These include:
- Odin's Ravens;
- Nornir Chests;
- Legendary chests.
There are also various side activities to unlock in Midgard, including:
- Yggdrasil Rifts;
- Draugr Holes;
- Berserker Gravestones.
There aren't any major hidden areas in Midgard, those some are unlocked later than others. One such location is Tyr's Temple which you'll visit very late in the game (you no longer need it to travel between realms in GoW Ragnarok).
