God of War Ragnarok is one of the most-awaited games of 2022. It’s the next game in the God of War series, which is now about Kratos and his son Atreus. The setting is still based on Norse mythology, and Kratos will fight Thor as he travels through the nine realms.
The most significant difference this time is that God of War Ragnarok will come out on PS5, which means better graphics and performance than God of War (2018). Also, there are more kinds of enemies, and the combat system has been improved so that shields and guarding are more critical.
Now that the movie is almost out, there are even sneak peeks to read. These give you an idea of how the first few hours of the game will go and help you get a feel for what Kratos and Atreus will be doing in this sequel.
This page is updated with the latest news about God of War Ragnarok, how it plays, whether or not it will be available on PC, and more.
God of War Ragnarok: Release Date and Platforms
God of War Ragnarok will come out on PS5 and PS4 on November 9, 2022. This is later than its original release date of 2021.
Before this PlayStation Blog update, there had been a lot of rumours surrounding Ragnarok (opens in new tab). Herman Hulst, the head of PlayStation Studios, later confirmed the postponement in a PlayStation Blog interview from June 2021, saying that it was done to allow the Sony Santa Monica team more time to recover from the pandemic’s interruption.
Following this, many people later thought God of War: Ragnarok had also been delayed till 2023, but the June 2022 update luckily disproved this. The release of this eagerly awaited sequel is finally in sight, assuming there are no last-minute delays.

God of War Ragnarok: Gameplay
The release date for God of War Ragnarok is getting close. As part of the review process, we are allowed to tell you today what we thought of the game after the first couple of hours. We can’t say many things because they would give away too much, but we’d still like to give you an idea of what we think so far.
First, it’s important to point out that God of War Ragnarok feels just as good to play as the last game and that the combat is just as fun as it always was. Also, the game doesn’t waste much time getting you set up, and you’ll soon have two weapons you’ve used before.
Returning to this world feels natural, and the game doesn’t take long to remind you where the last one ended and what Kratos and Atreus still need to do. Kratos wants to keep training, while Atreus is getting impatient in his search for answers and understanding about himself.
In the first couple of hours, there are some excellent character moments, and the game seems eager to get you into the action as soon as humanly (or divinely) possible. Even though Sunny Suljic’s voice for Atreus has changed, the returning cast still fits their roles perfectly, and spending more time with them is like getting back under a warm blanket.
Of course, that warm, cosy feeling is soon replaced by savage bloodletting, but Kratos is still trying to leave behind his war-making and killing ways. Christopher Judge’s voice work is still great, and he does a great job of selling this inner conflict. We can’t wait to see where this last chapter of the Norse saga takes him.
Combat is still a big part of the fun, and Kratos’s raw strength and Atreus’s skill with a bow and arrow still work very well together. We hope to see some new fighting features at some point, but for now, it feels like we’re just picking up where we left off, which isn’t bad considering how good the last game was.

So far, nothing has seemed less than good. The graphics look fabulous with our PS5 hooked up to a 4K TV. There are a lot of rich details and beautiful environments, and the lack of loading screens in this series is still very welcome. It’s great to be home again.
So, that’s where God of War: Ragnarok stands right now! If you were wondering, the review embargo is lifted on Thursday, November 3, at 4 p.m., so it won’t be long before everyone gives their opinion and Metacritic starts to fill up with scores.
First Valkyrie DEFEATED! The Dance Pad God of War run is MUCH harder than I thought it would be, Gunnr took me almost 3 hours with 78 tries (I’m playing on “Give Me a Challenge” difficulty). It was all worth it to get ready for #GodofWarRagnarok pic.twitter.com/xZJ7xEjKRw
