In a new gameplay video, Game Informer shows why the motto of the God of War Ragnarök developers is "play with your food".

Screenshots from the gameplay video above were shown last Thursday, when it was also revealed that the philosophy of the God of War Ragnarök developers, at least when it comes to combat, comes down to: “Kratos plays with his food.” How he does that is shown with a minute and a half of gameplay.

For example, Kratos shows part of his arsenal. Among other things, Blades of Chaos, axe and a shield can be seen in action. New in Ragnarök is the ability to press triangle to use Kratos’ weapon’s Signature Move. For example, Kratos can make his weapon stronger with the help of fire or ice.


Atreus runs around with his bow and arrow as usual and assists his father by, among other things, dazzling and capturing enemies, and by summoning ghostly allies and letting them fight.

God of War Ragnarök will be released on November 9 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
