God of War Ragnarok — the return of Kratos and Atreus

Ragnarok, the sequel to 2018’s God of War, is expected to be an even better game on the PlayStation 4. It’s expected to be released in 2022, but we wouldn’t be shocked if it slid again.

God of War Ragnarok’s PS5-powered gameplay video already looks incredible. Kratos and Atreus are returning to the Nine Realms of Norse mythology, and it seems like they’ll be spending more time there this time around. While you’re waiting, we recommend re-playing God of War on the PS5 to take advantage of the new features that console provides.


As the year progresses, we should expect to learn more about God of War Ragnarok, perhaps in the summer or early autumn. While we wait for further information regarding God of War Ragnarok, this is what we know thus far.

Rumors about the release date of God of War: Ragnarok

“Ragnorok is arriving this year,” Santa Monica Studios’ animation director Bruno Velazquez said in a recent interview, indicating that the game would be released in 2022.

Due to delays in production, the game was originally scheduled for release in 2021 but has since been moved back to the end of 2022, which means it’s not impossible that it will be published this year. Release dates are sometimes pushed back for additional polish in the last stages of development, so we wouldn’t be shocked if God of War Ragnarok was delayed until 2023.


Trailer and plot for God of War Ragnarok.

The official reveal trailer for God of War Ragnarok premiered at the PlayStation Showcase 2021 after a long wait. It demonstrates how Atreus and his father Kratos interacted as children. In addition to returning characters from 2018’s God of War, the Norse gods Thor and Tyr are also included.

It is clear from this statement that the next God of War will be a direct sequel to last year’s release. Warning: The last moments of the game foreshadow the events of the Norse epic, Ragnarok. The Norse god of thunder, Thor, appears at Kratos’ home at the conclusion of the film, apparently to avenge the deaths of his two sons and his brother Baldur.

We can anticipate God of War Ragnarok to follow Kratos and Atreus, who happens to be the trickster god Loki, as they go through the Nine Realms. This is what we can expect. Svartalfheim and Asgard, as well as other locations, are expected to be included.


In addition, we can anticipate the fight to have a pleasing combination of chaos and weight because of the superior haptic input provided by DualSense controllers.

PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 versions of God of War: Ragnarok

Cross-Platform: God of War Ragnarok will be available on both PS5 and PS4. Santa Monica Studio’s ability to scale the game for both systems will determine whether or not the game’s graphical integrity suffers. But thus far, the game’s gameplay has been excellent.

In terms of visuals, the PS4 version of God of War was stunning, so we can anticipate the PS5 version to be much better, particularly with the PS5.


Because of a worldwide chip scarcity affecting game console and graphics card supplies, it’s difficult to locate a PS5 refill right now. It’s possible that releasing God of War Ragnarok across PlayStation generations will benefit those without a PS5.

The forecast for God of War: Ragnarok.

This year, if the sequel to God of War follows in the footsteps of its predecessor in terms of plot and action, we may have a new contender for the title of greatest PlayStation 5 game.

Santa Monica Studio has a lot of talent, so it’s a hefty ask. God of War Ragnarok is a visual feast for the eyes thanks to the PS5’s capability as a first-party Sony developer. The Nine Realms and the rest of the tale remain on our list of things to see, even if that doesn’t happen. Because the wait for Ragnarok is becoming unpleasant, we will be cautious about returning to God of War on PS5.
