Kratos and Atreus are seen fighting to survive in the brand-new cinematic God of War Ragnarök – Father and Son Trailer.
Originally meant to have been released in 2021 but postponed due to COVID-19 impact, God of War Ragnarök is finally set for release on 9 November 2022 on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
The Cinematic Trailer
In the latest thirty-second God of War Ragnarök cinematic trailer, Kratos and Atreus are seen fighting foes of both fire and ice before we catch a glimpse of gargantuan Fenrir in the distance. Fenrir is the mythical hound of Norse mythology and is understood to be one of Loki’s children in most lore, as well as the killer of the All-Father, Odin. Fenrir along with the World Serpent is thought to be one of the harbingers of the end of days, Ragnarök.
In the trailer, Kratos and Atreus can be seen preparing themselves for what is sure to be an epic battle versus the Norse gods.
While not actual gameplay footage, the God of War Ragnarök cinematic trailer presents beautiful landscapes and an epic soundtrack. Provisional gameplay footage has been released by some gamers who were allowed demo access, and it is looking to be an epic new release.
God of War Ragnarök is aimed to be an action-adventure game that is being developed by Santa Monica Studios and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. As Sony usually does, the latest instalment to the God of War franchise will be a PlayStation exclusive, and available on the latest console as well as the last generation console, the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4 respectively.
God of War Ragnarök is the ninth game in the God of War saga and is the sequel to the 2018 God of War which was famed to be one of the most cinematically beautiful games released on the PlayStation 4 that year. Set in ancient Scandinavia, God of War Ragnarök is loosely based on Norse mythology, much like its predecessor.
As the title suggests, God of War Ragnarök will most likely follow the series of events that bring about the end of days or the end of the world, historically defining the death of many of the Norse gods. Kratos and Atreus must work together as they traverse the nine realms of Norse mythology to uncover some way of preventing Ragnarök as well as some clue into Atreus’s identity as Loki.
Along their journey, the Father and Son pair must find The Norse God of War, Týr, who was previously thought to be dead, as well as resolve their conflict with both the Norse God of Thunder, Thor, and the vengeful Goddess of love, fertility, battle and death, Freya, after the death of her son, Baldur, at Kratos’s hands.
Without even having been released yet, God of War Ragnarök has already been awarded the 2020 Golden Joystick awards’ ‘Most Wanted Game’ as well as PlayStation.Blog awards’ ‘Most Anticipated Game’.
