First Look at God of War: Ragnarok for the Playstation 5
Sony Interactive Entertainment wowwed the crowd today with a bunch of announcements and gaming news but none quite as important as their first peek at the upcoming God of War: Ragnarok game which is a direct sequel to the “God of War” game from a few years ago.
You can check out the first God of War: Ragnarok gameplay trailer after the cut.
The last time they did any major announcement was last year with the reveal of the game’s official title and logo.
And fast forward this week and we’re already seeing a nice trailer for the game which takes advantage of the supposed power of the Sony Playstation 5.
Here’s are bits of what they had to say about God of War: Ragnarok from the Playstation official blog.
As you can see in the trailer, we’re picking up a few years after the events of God of War (2018). The freezing winds of Fimbulwinter have come to Midgard, making survival for Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir in the Norse wilds even more challenging than before.
While the last game built an enormous amount of trust and understanding between father and son, there is still a great deal of complexity in their interactions – especially after the revelation of Atreus’ Giant heritage and the hidden prophecy only Kratos saw.
Atreus is desperately curious. Like most young people, he wants to understand who he is more than anything. In this case, he wants to understand who he could be. The mystery of Loki’s role in the upcoming conflict is something that Atreus cannot let go of. He wants to keep his family safe, but Atreus also doesn’t want to stand by and do nothing while conflict consumes the Nine Realms.
Kratos, still bearing the knowledge of his past mistakes, wants to spare Atreus the bloody lessons he learned from his conflict with gods. He wants to keep his son safe, above all, and their confrontation with Baldur has vindicated the belief that only tragedy will come from further entanglements with the Aesir.
It also looks like the main enemies for this game would be Freya and Thor and that’s all thanks to the actions of Kratos and Atreus from the first game. Freya is also a Vanir and it looks like she won’t be just a purely magical fighter as she’s also stated to be good with physical combat. And then there’s Thor who we already got a bit of tease of at the secret ending from the last game where he crashes Kratos’ hut looking for a fight.
So what do you think of God of War: Ragnarok? Is it going to be a pass or a fail? Are you hyped for the game already? Leave a comment below and follow me on Twitter at @thefanboyseo!
