God of War Ragnarök is coming on November 9

If you were concerned that there wouldn’t be any PS5 games this year, Santa Monica Studio has now revealed that God of War Ragnarök will release on November 9.

The game, which picks up after the events of 2018’s God of War and tells the story of Kratos and Atreus as father and son, was supposed to be released last year but was previously delayed to 2022 with no release date confirmed until now, which had raised concerns that it would experience yet another delay.


But with the formal announcement of the release date and the addition of a new CGI teaser, PlayStation and God of War fans can now exhale with comfort. It’s brief, but it demonstrates how Kratos has presumably become into more of a mentor to Atreus, who is now a more self-assured and responsible adolescent.

Additionally, we catch a glimpse of what appears to be a huge wolf, maybe Fenrir, a wolf-god who resisted the Aesir (the group of Norse god that Odin and Thor belong to). It’s a huge contrast from the comedic Norse mythology we see in movies like Thor: Ragnarok and the hero-like Thor, so expect God of War Ragnarök to delve further into the fascinating, peculiar, and frequently brutal history and legends of Old Norse mythology.

There hasn’t been much gameplay of God of War Ragnarök up to this point, probably because Sony and Santa Monica are keeping it under wraps to avoid giving away any plot twists and turns.


Regardless, there haven’t been many significant PS5 or PS4 titles released recently after a good start to the year with Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, and Gran Turismo 7. God of War Ragnarök, thankfully, will at least be a significant headline PlayStation exclusive to end this dry spell.

It will probably make use of several PS5 capabilities and power. Therefore, if you’ve found a PS5 resupply and have finished playing PS5-only titles like Deathloop, you’ll have God of War Ragnarök to look forward to in a few months.

Ragnarök is coming to the PS4 as well, but don’t expect it to perform as well as it will on Sony’s next-generation platform (we think you should acquire a PS5, it’s a great machine).


In fact, we’d say that with God of War Ragnarök coming soon and a sizable number of games already appearing on our list of the best PS5 games, this is a terrific time to finally purchase a PS5.
