After a year’s worth of wait, we finally saw our first look at God of War Ragnarok. The highly anticipated sequel was officially announced back in September last year with a small teaser trailer. Now, the developer of the game, Santa Monica Studios, released the actual reveal trailer during yesterday’s PlayStation Showcase Event.

God of War Ragnarok is set a few years after the end of GOW (2018). Atreus is now a teenager and Kratos looks slightly old. The game will bring back characters from previous games like Freya and Thor. The trailer also revealed some cool-looking enemies, including a big lizard.

Release Date and Platform

Unfortunately, the trailer didn’t reveal the exact release date. However, we do know that it will be available sometime during 2022. Let’s just hope that there are no more delays. Ragnarok will launch for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Last Game for the Norse Saga

During the post-show, it was announced that Ragnarok is the final game in the Norse saga. This doesn’t necessarily mean that this is the last God of War game. It’s just the last one that will be set in the nine realms. So, we don’t know where the IP will go after this game.

Director of the Game

Unlike God of War (2018), Ragnarok is not being directed by Cory Barlog. This time it’s Eric Williams who’s directing the game. The reason for this is to put some fresh perspective on the IP. Australian video game writer and journalist, Alana Pearce, is also hired as a writer for the game, along with Aly Amezcua.

PC Version?

For now, God of War Ragnarok is being sold as a PS-exclusive game. There is no word if the game will get a PC launch or not. Even the 2018 game hasn’t gotten a PC port yet. Although, there were some rumors a few months ago suggesting the PC release of God of War (2018). I guess we will have to wait and see.
