Sony recently announced four God of War Ragnarök editions, which are detailed in full below.

According to retailer listings, God of War Ragnarök will see players “embark on an epic and heartfelt journey as Kratos and Atreus struggle with holding on and letting go.

“A couple of years have passed since Fimbulwinter began; the cold continues to bite, throughout the realm of Midgard.

“Kratos and Atreus do their best to stay hidden, having tried to undo the approaching end times. Every day they train for the inevitable while seeking any possible means to change the course of fate.

“Atreus seeks to further understand the clues left behind by his mother and piece together his prophesied role in the coming war. Meanwhile, Kratos struggles with his son’s desire to uncover more about his identity, knowing it will draw them towards the vengeful Aesir. If that happens, they’ll be even closer to repeating the bloody mistakes of the past.

“Together, father and son venture deep into the Nine Realms, while Asgardian forces prepare for war. Along the way, they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters.

“As the threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer, Kratos and Atreus find themselves faced with a choice: between their own safety or the safety of the realms.”
