Throughout Olympus, several Hyperion Gates can be found, to be used in crossing great distances quickly.
In God of War IIIEdit
These gates, with a reference to the great Titan Hyperion, are scattered throughout Olympus, and are used to travel great distances in a very short time. Easily usable for very short distances as well, the gates function as a warp gate, instantly bringing its user from one location to another.
The most notable example being the one in the realm of Hades, which required the soul of a god to activate. It would transport its user back to Olympus.
- In God of War, after having defeated Ares, Kratos uses a similar gate to travel from The Suicide Bluffs to Mount Olympus, to claim his throne as the new God of War.
- It is unknown why Kratos has not simply used some of his godly powers which were contained in the Blade of Olympus, as when he was ascended to a God Level, so it was his soul, thus having the soul of a god, and thus temporarily regaining some of his powers would make him fit the aforementioned condition in the same way he managed to enter Olympus in the first game, but it was most likely ignored by the developers of the game in order to have a longer and more interesting playtime.
- The gates are also featured in the multiplayer of God of War: Ascension, so the warriors can get into far places of the maps with ease. Although, the warriors presumably do not have the soul of a god to enter in the gates, but maybe if one subjects his soul to a god, he may be granted passage through the gates, but this hypothesis is not confirmed, since Kratos was never seen entering in a Hyperion Gate while he was serving Ares.
