The game picks up after Kratos has taken Ares' place as the god of war. He comes into contact with his mother, Callisto, who tells him to find his his brother just before she dies. Kratos faces several dangers before finally tracking down Deimos to the Domain of Death. After Kratos frees him and gains his trust, the two brothers battle Thanatos, but Deimos is killed in the process.
