God of War PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Did you think today's free God of War song was a bit of an anticlimax after the community worked hard to get the trailer up to 15 million views? Well, it turns out there was a secret hidden in the MP3. The description for the audio file states that the music is an "introduction to Kratos and Atreus". But who's the latter? Director Cory Barlog has confirmed that it's the name of the bearded hero's kid.

But what do we know about Atreus in Greek mythology? A bit of casual Googling kicks up some interesting anecdotes, like the fact that he was exiled by his father for murdering his half-brother. Could some deeper family dynamics play out in the plot of the new game? We'll have to wait and see, but it's nice to have a little more information to work with.
