The popular game, God of War, includes a hidden reference to Infinity War and the powers of the Infinity Gauntlet.
There are no spoilers for the movie, but there are some God of War spoilers which reveal the content and equipment one will encounter in this game.
Thanos, the Infinity Gauntlet, and the Six Infinity Stones… all those who know about these 3 elements of Marvel’s universe would know that each Stone come with unique powers. From power over the dead and ability to control time, the Infinity Stones give the wielder great powers even when the owner is the Ghost of Sparta.
This is where the spoilers kick in…
A God of War player, moxxxxxi had posted on the game’s subreddit in order to inform the players of a hidden reference which involves the six Stones and the Infinity Gauntlet. You cannot wear the gauntlet, but you can equip a talisman called the Shattered Gauntlet of Ages.
Once you upgrade this talisman until it has 3 enchantment slots, you can fill the makeshift Infinity Gauntlet.
Andvari’s Soul – Soul Stone
Njord’s Temporal Stone – Time Stone
Eye of the Outer Realm – Space Stone
Ivaldi’s Corrupted Mind – Mind Stone
Asgard’s Shard of Existence – Reality Stone
Muspelheim Eye of Power – Power Stone
The player provided a gif which shows the Shattered Gauntlet’s powers. The GIF shows some purple projectiles shooting out of the Shattered Gauntlet when some enchantments are equipped.
The reference is one that a lot of God of War players may have missed on the first playthrough given how the item’s description has been worded.
It refers to this Gauntlet as an “ancient relic of Hel deemed too powerful to remain whole” which is fragmented throughout the realms, and many players may have been searching for the rest of the pieces instead of just upgrading it.
