2018’s God of War is considered by many to be a masterpiece—certainly one of the best PlayStation console exclusives available. What makes it an even bigger deal is how much of an overhaul the project was compared to previous entries in the series.
While many would have likely written off such a bold idea, those at Santa Monica embraced it with all of their hearts, and it shows.
Four years later, gamers are buckling themselves in to witness the end of Krots’ Norse Mythology adventure. God of War: Ragnarok is set to release on November 9th, 2022, which is just under two months away. Sony released a new trailer for the sequel to celebrate the impending launch, which certainly ups the ante.
The End Is Here
The full trailer can be seen below:
The long four-year wait seems like it is going to be worth every second of it. As great as 2018’s God of War was, it looks to have only touched the surface of Norse Mythology. With Ragnarok, everything in the game will be cranked up to eleven, if not even higher.
Obviously, one of the biggest things to note from everything the teaser included is those final epic moments as Kratos and Thor clash. That confrontation will truly be magnificent.
Freya can also be spotted briefly in the trailer, where it’s revealed that she is still very much in mourning about the passing of her son, Baldur, at the hands of Kratos.
As if things weren’t hard enough, it seems like Kratos will have to fight multiple Valkyries at the same time this time around.
Given how difficult those fights were in the original game, players may be in for a far greater challenge.
The developers have confirmed that in Ragnarok, gamers will be allowed to access every realm, something that wasn’t possible in the first. This means that at some point in the game, Kratos will be in for another visit to Hel.
Kratos will be getting a new ally this time around in Tyr, the Norse God of War who fights for peace. Tyr was talked a lot about in the first game but never seen—at least, until now.
The developers seem to have put a lot of time into diversifying the enemies players will go up against, including the mysterious foe seen below.
Could fans get to fight this siren/mermaid-type enemy underwater? Or maybe they’re just a friend offering words of advice.
Sony Santa Monica sure has high expectations to meet when it comes to God of War: Ragnarok, so hopefully, they’re able to do so. Though, given how the first one turned out, there’s not much reason to doubt them.
