God of War Ragnarok – everything we know so far

God of War Ragnarok is coming. Officially revealed for the first time during the grand finale of the 2021 PS5 showcase in September, the debut trailer signalled the much anticipated return of Kratos and Atreus was on the horizon. With a host of familiar faces, we were also introduced to some new characters who will be in the mythology-inspired adventure. 

Since then, though, we haven’t had that much in the way of updates about the game. As of right now, we have only have a 2022 launch window but no concrete date. At the start of the year, Sony put out a list that seemed to reiterate this year is still the target for Kratos. Rather excitingly, Ragnarok producer Cory Barlog said “something cool is coming” but it’s just not ready to be shown, and Santa Monica recently shared details about the game’s accessibility features. With Sony historically holding its own showcase in the form of a State of Play, we may not see the upcoming God of War instalment make an appearance at E3 2022 or be a part of the E3 2022 schedule, but we may see it later in the year.

Sony Santa Monica and PlayStation Studios recently announced that God of War Ragnarok has been delayed to 2022. As mentioned earlier, this wasn’t a huge surprise. The fact that we haven’t seen any gameplay, cinematics, story details, or even a proper trailer halfway into 2021 meant a delay was inevitable.

The new God of War Ragnarok trailer gave us a good idea of what to expect from the story. Years have passed since the end of 2018’s God of War, evidenced by an older, more confident Atreus whose giant genes are starting to show. 

Together father and son must face the impending Ragnarok – the legendary Norse version of an apocalypse – facing the enemies they made in God of War like Freya, new ones like Thor, and all as Kratos wrestles with his son’s rebellious streak and his knowledge of who Atreus really is. The story will take place across the Nine Realms – you only saw six in God of War – adding Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard to the mix. 

The trailer also introduces some intriguing new characters like Angrboda, who  developer Sony Santa Monica has said is “one of the last remaining giants.” That big guy at the end? That’s Tyr, son of Odin, half-brother of Thor and Baldur, but imprisoned by his own father and so likely to want to settle the score with daddy.

If you’ve finished God of War but need a reminder of the ending to get up to speed, keep reading…

**SPOILERS FOR 2018’s GOD OF WAR AHEAD**

Seriously, spoilers. At the end of 2018’s God of War Kratos and Atreus discover that Faye, AKA Mrs Kratos, was actually a giant called Laufey, making Atreus half god and half-giant, and with another name: Loki. Yes, that Loki, the one from Norse mythology who is often portrayed as a trickster, sometimes with shapeshifting abilities. God of War played pretty fast and loose with Norse mythology but could offer some hints as to what’s to come. 

Once that big revelation is out of the way, we’re told Fimbulwinter is coming. If you skipped your Norse mythology class – shame on you – then know that this is a three-year ‘great winter’ that proceeds Ragnarok, the Norse apocalypse.

Post credits, there’s a second ending when you return home and, there, Thor appears ‘several years later’. It’s a brief tease, ending after Kratos asks him what he wants. It could be that Thor wants revenge for that whole Kratos ‘killing his sons’ thing, or, he might want his help stopping Ragnarok.

God of War made its game director Cory Barlog internet famous, but for the new game Eric Williams is taking on the role. He’s worked on the God of War series since 2004, and explained to GamesRadar+ want his new position means for the series in a recent interview. 

“Staying true to what we did last time, it’s keeping the father-son relationship moving,” explains Williams. “It doesn’t just stop, like, ‘oh, we finished this for mom, we’re good.’ No, like, there’s a lot more that goes on in life, and it continues moving forward.” 

“Last time, it was one kid with a lot of adults talking. This is like, well, there are some different perspectives. We’re gonna see it from a kid’s perspective in the world, figuring things out that they thought were black and white, or maybe much more gray, and a lot more family dynamics.”
