Sony has released the first trailer for God of War: Ragnarok.
That’s what the company did tonight during the PlayStation Showcase. The new God of War was already announced last year through a teaser. Then 2021 was mentioned as the release year in the teaser, but earlier this year Sony already indicated that the game would only be released in 2022.
The trailer shows various locations in the game. Kratos and his son Atreus head out again and can visit all nine realms instead of the six from the previous God of War. The duo is looking for the Norse god of war, Tyr.
In addition, Ryan Hurst, an actor best known for his role as Opie from the Sons of Anarchy series, is known to play the role of Thor. It has also been announced that Cory Barlog will not direct the new God of War. Eric Williams takes over – he has worked on all the games in the series.
Finally, developer Sony Santa Monica reported that God of War: Ragnarok is the final part of the ‘Norwegian series’ of God of War. After that, the series may therefore focus on other settings.
God of War: Ragnarok is the direct sequel to the 2018 God of War. In it, Kratos does not compete against the Greek gods, but against the gods from Norse mythologies. In doing so, he uses a special axe that returns to him after throwing it at enemies or objects. The game was particularly well received by the worldwide press and gamers.
God of War is coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2022. Watch the trailer below.
