God Of War Ragnarok's November Release Date Has Been Confirmed, And A New Trailer Has Been Released

Last Updated 1 month Ago

The official release date for God of War: Ragnarok has now been revealed by Sony. The eagerly awaited game will launch on November 9 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 systems in several editions.

A terrifyingly brief teaser dubbed “Father and Son” that depicts Kratos and Atreus defeating foes in frigid Norse lands was released along with the release date.

On July 15, at precisely 10:00 a.m. (ET for North America, local time for other territories), pre-orders for God of War: Ragnarok will open. Three editions of the game will be offered: Standard, Collector’s, and Jötnar Edition. Sony is planning a tasty upgrade surprise.

God of War: Ragnarok’s PlayStation 4 edition may be upgraded to its PlayStation 5 version for $10 if you buy the PlayStation 4 version instead. The special accessories that purchasers will receive with each edition are also shown in an official unboxing film that Sony has released for all three.

The Collector’s Edition includes extras including a steelbook display box, two-inch Vanir Twins carvings, a set of Dwarven dice, and a 16-inch Mjolnir replica, which is a facsimile of Thor’s hammer. The Jötnar Edition expands upon the Collector’s Edition by including a Draupnir Ring, a cool cloth-printed Yggdrasil map, a pin set depicting Kratos, Atreus, and Faye’s spirit creatures, and a 7-inch vinyl record with Bear McCreary’s music.

More Massive Creatures, More Catastrophic Wars

Regarding the plot, nothing new is shown in the newest God of War: Ragnarok trailer. The final scene, which depicts the father and son tandem gazing at a towering wolf, does contain some flesh. Those who are familiar with Norse mythology may recognize this wolf as none other than Fenrir, the son of Loki and a giantess by the name of Angrboda. It is the fabled wolf that is connected to the terrible catastrophe of the same name known in Norse mythology as Ragnarok.

After the World Snake Jörmungandr, Fenrir would be the 2nd gigantic to emerge in the God of War series. The goddess Hel is the third child in their family, making it interesting that both are said to be siblings.

While the entrance of Fenrir to the game will undoubtedly cause turmoil, Tyr, the Norse God of War, who originally appeared at the end of the first teaser unveiled in September of last year, will make a more intriguing appearance.

It will be intriguing to see what part God of War: Ragnarok’s Norse equivalent plays. Tyr appears to be much calmer and more collected than Kratos did in the original God of War series, which focused on Olympian gods.

However, Baldur in the God of War revival seems to be in a similar situation until he evolved into a vengeful murdering machine and was ultimately put to rest by Kratos, much to the sorrow of his mother Freya.
