God of War Ragnarok is now the official name of the game. For a while, fans were under the impression that Ragnarok would be the game’s final suffix, but the rumour mill worked hard to dissuade them.
The upcoming game’s developer, Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, has stated that it would wrap up the Norse tale from the previous title, God of War, so you know the stakes will be high.
The game’s popularity among fans is obviously quite high: The trailer for God of War Ragnarok, which was unveiled at the most recent Sony PlayStation Showcase on September 9, 2021, has received the most views to date.
That’s astounding considering that the majority of those trailers have received well over a million hits. Currently, God of War: Ragnarok has received over 12 million views. Whoever said that there was a declining interest among fans for Sony exclusives?
Kratos and Atreus will return to the ancient Norse world to continue the storyline from the last game and try to stop the eponymous Ragnarok, which ends all of creation. Read on for more information on the game, including the God of War Ragnarok release date.

What to expect from God Of War?
Grace Orlady, senior manager of Santa Monica Studio, teased launch details in a PlayStation Blog article.
“As the trailer shows, we take up a few years after God of War” (2018). Fimbulwinter has arrived in Midgard, making survival increasingly difficult for Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir.
“While the last game created a lot of trust and understanding between father and kid, there is still a lot of intricacy in their relationships,” she said.
God Of War: Ragnarok’s trailer reveals two adversaries. Freya was Kratos’ ally in the previous game.
“We wanted to remind players that Freya isn’t just a powerful Vanir mage, but also a dangerous warrior. Freya will use every weapon at her disposal to destroy Kratos.
Mimir called Thor the “Biggest Butchering Bastard in the Nine Realms” because he killed nearly all the Giants at Odin’s behest.
This time, the plot will include Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard. Last game lacked these three.
Kratos will return with new shields that can affect his skills. Ragnarok director Eric Williams told YouTuber Jon Ford that the sequel will feature “various shields with varied defensive options and skills”
“We want to allow up expressive options in how you design Kratos, his equipment and loadout,” Williams said. “Right down to the defence, so you can play differently and enemies know how to respond, forcing you to employ new things.”
God Of War Ragnarok Cast and Characters
While many actors are expected to return for God of War: Ragnarok, some new faces will also be introduced to the legendary universe.

God Of War Ragnarok Release Date
On November 9, 2022, God of War Ragnarok is scheduled to debut. A new CGI trailer released by Sony’s Santa Monica Studio revealed the release date and showed Kratos and Atreus battling a swarm of enemies before taking on the enormous wolf Fenrir.
Pre-orders for the game will start on July 15 according to a blog post published by Santa Monica Studio on July 6. The site also provides information on the many game editions that will be offered, including a collector’s edition that includes a 16-inch model of Thor’s hammer.
Fans have been waiting for news regarding the game’s arrival for months, so the announced release date is welcome news. God of War Ragnarok has been postponed to 2022, according to a statement made on September 9 during the Sony PlayStation Showcase by publisher PlayStation Studios and developer Sony Santa Monica.
God Of War Ragnarok Platforms
God of War Ragnarok will be available on both PS4 and PS5, and it will be cross-platform. Herman Hulst specifically mentioned the game in an interview where he also revealed that other games that were previously assumed to be PlayStation 5 exclusives would also be coming to PS4 in the future.
“We’ll keep looking at it where it makes sense to build a title for both PS4 and PS5 – like Horizon Forbidden West, the next God of War, GT7,” Hulst stated.

And PS4 owners are free to play that game if they so like. The game will be available for them to play on the PS5 if they choose to do so.
Since Sony has not yet launched a first-party PS4/PS5 game without a simultaneous release date across both platforms, it is very likely that both titles will debut at the same time.
Whether God of War Ragnarok will be released on PC is one thing we still don’t know. Sony has been releasing its first-party portfolio on PC shortly after debut in recent years. A few years after its first release, God of War was released on PC, thus it’s possible that this will also happen.
