Key Takeaway

You can find the real Tyr in a cell in Aesir Prison Wreckage, but it can only be accessed after Asgard’s fall.

One of the biggest surprises in God of War Ragnarök is the truth behind Tyr, who’s revealed to be a fake the whole time. Players can find closure by finding the real Tyr after they beat the main game.

    Rescuing the Real Tyr

    At the beginning of the game, Atreus theorizes the possibility of Odin keeping Tyr in Niflheim. It turns out he was right the whole time. Unfortunately, the prison that keeps Tyr can only be accessed after Asgard’s fall during the game’s climax.

    That said, head to Niflheim after you beat the main story. You’ll find a new path you can take to the left of the one that leads to the Raven Tree. Taking this path will initiate The Broken Prison favor.

    Take this path and you’ll find the Aesir Prison Wreckage.

    This place is full of cells that are guarded by Einherjar, and a wide variety of prisoned enemies, from a Traveller to a Dark Elf. However, its most notable prisoner is the Norse God of War himself.

    Make your way to the very bottom of the prison. You’ll need to use your Draupnir Spear on the wind spouts here, as well as the chains to move them around, to get from one floor to another. As soon as you do, you’ll find Tyr, the real one, behind a cell. Open his cell to converse with him.

    Tyr’s Locations

    Once freed, Tyr will ask if he could have some space before he heads to Sindri’s House in the Realm Between Realms. With that, Tyr will set out on a pilgrimage on his own. You can find him and speak to him at certain places in various realms. Visit him at these places to hear Tyr’s thoughts for yourself, as well as what he thinks of the current state of the Nine Realms.
