God of War Ragnarok will see Kratos and Atreus set off once more to take on a new series of terrifying foes, so we’ve compiled everything we know so far about the PlayStation exclusive.

For the better part of a whole year, the only information fans had about the sequel to God of War (2018) was a blue circle covered in Norse runes. While it was nice to know that God of War Ragnarok is real and in development, many PlayStation owners had been craving something more substantial.

Things changed when, back in September of 2021, the PlayStation Showcase gave avid players a brief glimpse of the end of all days. If you’re wondering when God of War Ragnarok will finally hit our screens, here’s everything you need to know.

GOW reveal

Is there a God of War Ragnarok release date yet?

God of War Ragnarok is releasing in 2022. While we still don’t have an exact date, with Horizon: Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 having recently arrived, there’s plenty to keep PlayStation gamers busy in the interim.

God of War Ragnarok platforms

As you likely expected, Ragnarok will remain a PlayStation exclusive, and will therefore only be available on PlayStation 4 and 5.

However, with Sony eventually opting to release the 2018 version on PC, we may see the next chapter in this ancient tale drop on PC in the future.

Playstation Showcase: Gameplay trailer

As we can see from the Playstation Showcase trailer below, Atreus has also grown since we last saw him and looks to be a much more formidable warrior.

Setting out to rescue Tyr, the God that placed his hand in the mouth of Fenrir, it seems as if they’ll face some fearsome foes on the way.

Are there any God of War Ragnarok gameplay details?

Much like 2018’s God of War reveal, the footage started with a short but epic gameplay trailer that confirmed multiple things.

Both Kratos and his son, Atreus, will return, with gameplay appearing similar to their 2018 outing, although both characters are using a variety of new skills, powers, and weapons.

It looks like a portion of the protagonist’s quest will be to rescue the Norse God of War, Tyr. It will be interesting to see how the developers handle this from a lore perspective. After all, Kratos became his counterpart after killing Ares in the original God of War game.

We also caught another glimpse of Thor who will be voiced by Ryan Hearst of Sons of Anarchy fame.
