Alright folks, this is going to be a long guide, so let’s get right to it. The lore in God of War is told to the player in several different ways, including in the form of these Lore Markers that can be found just about everywhere. They take the form of scrolls, runes, and writings etched into standing stones. Kratos says he can read but chooses not to, so Atreus is doing all the deciphering. Each time you read a Lore Marker, a lore entry will be added to your journal. I love how they’re written from the perspective of Atreus, so they’re definitely worth a read. Since the game keeps track of which Lore Markers you’ve read in each region, let’s get down to business and look at where to find them all.
