God of War - A Realm Beyond, Tyr's Temple and the Realm Travel Room

A walkthrough for the third God of War story mission, a Realm Beyond.

A Realm Beyond, a short mission largely taking place in Tyr's Temple and the new place you'll discover along the way, intriguingly called the Realm Travel Room, is your next quest in God of War PS4's main story.

Here on this page, we'll take you through everything you need to know about this section of your quest, including how to solve any puzzles, take down any bosses and find any useful loot along the way. For guides to specific collectibles we also have pages on Valkyrie locations and how to open Hidden Chambers, Lost and Found locations and Faces of Magic locations, too.

This page follows on from Defeat the Ogre, Mountain's Base and the Hel's Bramble chest, and is the the sole page for this particular quest, seeing as it's so nice and short!

8 Things We Wished We Knew Before Playing God of War

You can dive into the quest walkthrough below, otherwise, you can always cycle back to our main God of War walkthrough and guide hub, or our guide to God of War Valkyrie locations and how to open Hidden Chambers, too.

A Realm Beyond and Tyr's Temple

Follow the Witch

So, the Witch has been keeping an eye on you. Follow her back down the hill towards the out-of-order wooden contraption. She'll clean it up for you and, soon enough, you can hop on and ride back down to Sindri - that dwarf you met earlier - for a nice shortcut up and down that part of the mountain.

Down the bottom there's a chest you might spot that's now more easily accessible. Go over to Sindri's area and then look to the East - you'll see a smoking poison tower just in sight. Hit that with your axe, then run back round to the base of the lift on the other side.


Now, to the north-east of the lift, you can work your way round to get to a chest for a Solf Svartalfheim Steel piece.


Now, follow the Witch back inside through the doors you first got here through - only this time, she's got a new way for you to retread your steps. By shooting her special arrows at the blue chrystals you might have spotted along the way, a bridge is formed - make a mental note of this mechanic! - and the path back to the other side is now passable again.


Follow her all the way back to the temple, and then at the doors back inside take a right down the steps - there's a dead chap with another collectible Artefact - for the Abandon Ship set - down the bottom.


Head back up and down the opposite set of steps where the Witch is indicating, and she'll create another bridge for you, this time along the side of the big temple structure. Run across and follow her instructions and the on-screen prompts to move the entire structure to point in a different direction. Atreus is starting to twig that you're actually kind of strong.


Follow her back up and inside, where she passes on the ability to shoot these magical bridge-forming arrows to Atreus - this'll come in very handy! Follow her across the next bridge into another room: the Realm Travel Room...

Realm Travel Room

Travel to Alfheim

Well, looks like there's more to this world than just the one realm! Follow the Witch to the altar and enjoy the explanatory cutscene, where you'll learn about the Bifrost, a tool for travelling between realms that seems to only be able to hold one charge at a time.


To get past that pesky black smoke that was blocking you up on the Mountain Foothills, you need to go to Alfheim - and charge up this Bifrost while you're there.

Have a play around with the special realm-trotting map - there's only one realm you can head to for now: Alfheim - and when you're ready, select it to travel there!


Follow the Witch outside once you arrive, watch the cutscene, and then get ready to explore an entirely new world...
