News | God of War Ragnarök Releases November 9 for PS4 and PS5

Sony and Sony Santa Monica Studio confirm God of War Ragnarök release date for November 9 and unveil the Collector's and Jötnar Editions.

After weeks of speculation and apparently last minute canceled announcements of the release date of God of War Ragnarök, the redeeming word is finaly here. The game will be released on November 9 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Sony and developer Sony Santa Monica Studio have announced this.

A thirty-second cinematic trailer featuring Kratos and Atreus, titled “Father and Son,” has also been shared. The trailer does not consist of gameplay footage and is therefore completely animated with CG.

In the trailer, Kratos and Atreus take on a group of enemies; Kratos with his ax and Atreus with his bow and arrow. A giant wolf can be seen in the final shot of the trailer. This is probably Fenrir, in Norse mythology the son of Loki (god of deception) and brother of Hel (goddess of the underworld).

PlayStation also released a video where Santa Monica Studio Art Director Rafael Grassetti and Ryan Hurst, the motion capture and voice actor of Thor, unbox the Collector’s and Jötnar Editions.

News | Voice actor Kratos"states delay God of War: Ragnarok "is my fault

God of War: Ragnarok will not be released until 2022, according to Christopher Judge, the voice actor behind main character Kratos states it's his fault.

He reported this on Twitter. He tells there that he could not walk in 2019 and had an operation on his back. His hips were also replaced and he had knee surgery. “They (Santa Monica Studio) have been waiting for me to recover.”

In a follow-up tweet, he says that no one within the developer got mad at him. When the game was unveiled last year, there was still a release year of 2021, but it is now known that the game will be released in 2022. “Santa Monica has never disclosed the reason for the delay.” Judge therefore praises the way the developer has dealt with this.

Judge also shares a fun fact about the new God of War director, Eric Williams. “Barlog (the director of the previous God of War) told me Eric is a beast. Update: Eric is a motherf*ckin beast!”

News | First Trailer God of War: Ragnarok Shown

Sony has released the first trailer for God of War: Ragnarok.

The company did so during the PlayStation Showcase tonight. The new God of War was already announced last year through a teaser. Then 2021 was mentioned as the release year in the teaser, but earlier this year Sony already indicated that the game would only be released in 2022.

The trailer shows various locations in the game. Kratos and his son Atreus head out again and can visit all nine realms instead of the six from the previous God of War. The duo is looking for the Norse god of war, Tyr.

In addition, Ryan Hurst, an actor best known for his role as Opie from the Sons of Anarchy series, is known to play the role of Thor. It has also been announced that Cory Barlog will not direct the new God of War. Eric Williams takes over – he has worked on all the games in the series.

God of War: Ragnarok is the direct sequel to the 2018 God of War. In it, Kratos does not compete against the Greek gods, but against the gods from Norse mythologies. In doing so, he uses a special ax that returns to him after throwing it at enemies or objects. The game was particularly well received by the worldwide press and gamers.

God of War is coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2022. Watch the trailer below.


News | God of War: Ragnarok postponed to 2022

God of War: Ragnarok, the sequel to the 2018 God of War, will not be released until 2022.

This was reported by PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst in a question session on PlayStation Blog. “We’ve made the decision to release (God of War) next year to make sure Santa Monica Studio can deliver the great God of War game we all want to play.”

Then Santa Monica Studio posted a message on Twitter reporting the same. In addition, 2022 will also be adhered to so that the safety of employees and their families can be guaranteed.

God of War: Ragnarok was unveiled last year with a teaser. That included the release year 2021. Still, most gamers were under the assumption that the game would not come out this year.

In the interview with Hermen Hulst, he also confirmed that the game is coming to PlayStation 4. The game was already confirmed for PlayStation 5, but the new God of War will also be released on Sony’s previous console.


News | Kratos voice actor shares his joy for the new God of War

Christopher Judge, the actor who portrays God of War lead character Kratos, shares his joy at the newly announced new part.

He did that on social media. He posted two videos. In one of the videos he turns on his microphone and says the iconic “boy”. In the other video, he is holding a Kratos action figure and smiling at the camera.

Although it has not been confirmed, it seems almost certain that Judge will once again take on the role of Kratos in the new part. A short teaser of the new God of War was shown during the PlayStation 5 presentation last Wednesday night. Only the text “Ragnarok is coming” was shown.

It’s no surprise that a new God of War for PlayStation 5 is in development: the previous part on PlayStation 4 already hinted at a sequel. Sony wants to release the new God of War in 2021.


News | New God of War will be released in 2021

Sony has announced a sequel to God of War with a teaser.

The images still reveal very little, except for the slogan ‘Ragnarok is coming’. The game thus hints at the mythological event of the same name, where the time of the Norse gods on earth comes to an end.

The game, possibly titled God of War Ragnarok, is likely to continue the story of God of War, which came out for PlayStation 4 in 2018. In it, Kratos has moved into Norse mythology and struggles with fatherhood.

The game will be released for PlayStation 5 in 2021.
