Secret hunters had long been hanging out on their very own subreddit, r/GodOfWarSecrets, and it wasn’t exactly new information that the Easter egg runes in question spelled out “Loki,” hinting at a scene at the end of the game where Faye reveals what she wanted to name her son. Santa Monica Studio confirmed the existence of the secret via Twitter, even referencing the concept artist Joe Kennedy’s hashtag for the secret: #FayeKnew.
It seems a few members of the subreddit are a bit disappointed by this somewhat anticlimactic secret, but there you have it — the runes that let us know Faye was already tuned into Atreus’s real identity were there the whole time. Fans have been on it and tirelessly searching for answers, and it seems they’ve finally found them. Now the hunt can finally be put to rest.
